Savory French Toast - A Scandalous Affair

I have had my eye on the various recipes of this version of the French Toast. I always knew the sweet version. I admit that seeing it in it's savory flavors on the blogoshphere was the first time.

The first time I saw it, I was a little taken aback and thought "Naaah! Nothing for me!" But then I saw it on Ashwini's and thought "Hmmmn! Looks good!"

A while later Tamana tried it out here and said it tasted pretty good. I was really getting inquisitive about the whole Savory French Toast thang.

Finally, Nandita blogged about it here and one or two will remember the scandal it caused ;-).

It was at this point I had to find out for myself what all the hype was about.

I liked Ash's use of cheese and inspired by this I went in search of my own version of the savory French Toast!

For one person

2 slices of toast - I used a wonderful three flour toast with sesame seeds
1 egg
a splash of milk
Aglio Olio
Italian Herb Mixture
Parmesan cheese - grated


Whisk the eggs, milk, Aglio Olio, grated Parmesan and the
Italian herb mixture all together in a mixing bowl.

Heat a pan with some oil. Soak the toast slices with the batter and fry in the pan until golden brown.

Serve with some fruit!


I have got to say. This is one delicious tasting toast. I always was a huge fan of the sweet type and thought nothing could come close to it. As of now the sweet French Toast has gotten competition. I liked the mix of the italian herbs and the cheese. It was really smooth and herby.

So, if any of you have seen different recipes for this and are still (like I was) hesitating in trying this, go on give it a whisk. You won't be sorry.

Oh and just for the record I had mine with an Espresso.

Tune in on the weekend for great Jack O'Lantern ideas and a Halloween special.
