Savory French Toast


2 Happy Egg Co. eggs

1/4 cup + 2 Tbsp. Ozark Mountain Creamery whole milk

2 Tbsp. Organic Valley unsalted butter, melted

3 cloves organic garlic, minced

1 tsp. Crystal hot sauce

1 tsp. coarsely ground black pepper

1/2 tsp. Frontier Co-op dry mustard

1/2 tsp. Kosher salt

Pinch Frontier Co-op red pepper flakes

1/2 cup grated Bel Gioioso parmesan

4 Tbsp. Organic Valley butter

4 slices Apple Blossom Garlic Asiago Sourdough

1-2 cups organic cherry tomatoes

1/4 cup organic basil, chiffonade


Step 1

Preheat oven to 200.

Step 2

In a large shallow bowl, whisk together your eggs, milk, melted butter, garlic cloves, Crystal hot sauce, black pepper, dry mustard, kosher salt, and red pepper flakes.

Step 3

Spread out your parmesan cheese on a plate.

Step 4

Add 2 Tbsp. butter to a skillet. Heat over medium heat until melted. We will cook 2 pieces of bread at a time.

Step 5

Dip your bread in the wet mixture. Dredge through the parmesan cheese. Add to the skillet. Repeat with another piece of bread.

Step 6

Cook, swirling pan and flipping halfway through until golden brown on each side, about 4 minutes per side. Remove toast to a baking sheet and place in the oven to keep warm while you fix the other 2 pieces.

Step 7

Add the other 2 Tbsp. of butter and melt. Add bread. After you flip your bread the first time, add your cherry tomatoes, making sure to shake the pan so they burst open slightly. Cover with a lid. Cook for 4-5 minutes or until the tomatoes have burst open and some liquid has released into the pan. Season with salt.

Step 8

To serve your toast, add some smashed tomatoes and their juices on top as well as some fresh basil. Grate more parmesan cheese on top.
