Crunchy Brioche French Toast

briochefrenchtoast-ripejournal

A classic weekend favourite, this decadent version of French toast is made with slices of brioche, coated in crunchy Special K flakes, toasted until crisp and topped with Greek yogurt and fresh berries. It’s a little fancy without actually requiring any fancy ingredients. Breakfast for dessert anyone? 


serves 2

INGREDIENTS

 

4 thick slices of brioche
3 eggs
¾ cups of milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon sugar
 

1½ cups of Special K Fruit & Nut or Forest Berries, crushed
Your choice of oil or butter for frying
Maple syrup for drizzling
Ricotta cheese or Greek yoghurt (optional)
Assorted berries for toppings

 

METHOD

  1. Beat together milk, eggs, vanilla and sugar
  2. Dip each slice of brioche into the mix and then straight into the Special K crumbs, coating both sides
  3. Heat a large pan over a medium heat and add oil or butter of your choosing 
  4. Once melted, add two pieces of brioche and cook for 5 minutes on each side
  5. Repeat with the remaining butter and brioche
  6. Serve the French toast with maple syrup and top with ricotta cheese or Greek yoghurt and fruit

*Note: Unlike regular bread, brioche will absorb the mix quite quickly, so don't soak it for too long.
