Serving French toast does not in any way have to be boring or uneventful. Making use of different and interesting bread or loaves is the first thing to keep in mind when approaching French toast. Don’t just settle for the regular store bought loaf of bread with no flavour and no substance.
The other thing to keep in mind is that French toast can be served with any accompaniments that you like. Be it poached pears or pulled pork, it can and will work if you pair it with confidence and the right ingredients.
Enriched bread like brioche or croissants work really well for French toast. Good quality sourdough is also an excellent choice to use when making savoury French toast.
Oven roasted cocktail tomatoes paired with basil and fresh mozzarella makes a great topping for French toast. It’s also visually quite appealing. A generous drizzle of olive oil and a good grinding of black pepper completes the dish beautifully.
