Guess what, guess what?!?!
I made us french toast on the grill!! And you guys, it is officially my new favorite way of cooking french toast. INCREDIBLE.
You know how this summer, grilled bread, is like “the thing”?
Ahh ok, maybe it is not “the thing” for you, but it kind of has been for me. I think it is just awesome. Although, now that I think of it, I pretty much think most things on the grill are awesome. The flavor is just so good. I think it has something to do with being cooked outside an over an open flame. It’s the best.
I can’t really remember how the idea of putting french toast on the grill came into my head, but it was one of my “you have to sit at your desk and plan some recipes” days.
Ugh. The “recipe planning days”. They always sound pretty nice at first because I get to sit instead of being up on my feet all day long, but then they always turn out to be so annoying. Not because I hate thinking up recipes, no I really like trying to brainstorm and all that. It is more because literally after an hour of sitting, I can’t take sitting anymore. Can you imagine if I had a regular old desk job?
Oh my gosh, that would be horrible. I’d be so antsy all day.
My ability to focus is absolutely pathetic.
I have one thing/idea/recipe/task/and who knows what else, that I am thinking about, then all of the sudden I need to move on to another thought – before I even finished the first thought! It’s incredibly frustrating. And if you are wondering whether or not I have ADD…I am too.
But let’s just go back to talking about the grilled french toast.
I was thinking about recipes my mom would like because even though I am twenty and should probably not be missing my mom, I totally am. When I miss people, I tend to make food they love. Kind of weird I guess, but I think it reminds me of them. Anyway, I was thinking about breakfast because my mom, well she really loves breakfast. This would have been one of those meals she would have gotten for lunch if we where together. Unfortunately, we are not, and she is most likely wishing her lame cold turkey sandwich would magically turn into this french toast.
Super sorry, but I am pretty sure that is not gonna happen.
Let me just tell you the best part about this grilled french toast.
The peaches and brioche bread get a nice, generous sprinkle of brown sugar before hitting that hot grill. And you know exactly what that sugar does when mixed with buttered, egg soaked bread – and when mixed with peaches that have been brushed with a mixture of Kahlua, vanilla and umm, more melted butter?
It’s caramelizes. And it’s the most delicious, summery thing. Ever.
The caramalization that happens on both the peaches and the toast. Just wow! I am trying to keep my excitement to a non obnoxious level, but I am telling you it is really hard. And clearly I am not doing so well.
This french toast is super easy, low on dishes and ready to go in thirty minutes. Less if you are quick in the kitchen.
Oh, and the peaches and cream?? Yeah, that is a summer combo I am never going to tire of.
Actually, I am pretty sure there are more peach recipes that will be coming your way. Let’s just say that I am going through a little peachy phase right now. It happens, but I think you’ll love it!
MMM, the perfect bite. Sorry Mom!
