Irish Soda Bread French Toast
When March rolls around, my mom makes a few loaves of Irish Soda Bread: One for the family, two or three for the neighbors and friends.
Last year, I finally learned her recipe. I made this Irish Soda Bread French Toast with it, but I never posted it because we ate it all too fast.
This year, I knew what I wanted to share once the Irish Soda Bread was in the oven.
French Toast is my favorite breakfast food and Irish Soda Bread is my favorite St. Patrick’s Day treat.
So naturally, I paired them together. I like to think that I can bring cultures together in one single meal. After all, isn’t that what food is partly about? Togetherness?
Didn’t the act of cooking completely civilize the Human Race? When we began to cook, we also started to sit down together and eat our meals.
It taught us manners and it taught us about family and how to be together. (Yes, I’ve been reading Michael Pollan’s latest book: Cooked.)
Food connects us and I’d like to start using it as a catalyst for conversation.
- 1 loaf Irish Soda Bread
- 3 eggs
- 1/4 cup whole milk
- 1/2 Tbsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp nutmeg
- Slice the Irish Soda Bread loaf into thick or thin slices, depending on your preference. Set aside.
- Heat a griddle on low-medium and lightly grease with butter.
- If you don't have a griddle, you may use a large skillet.
- Crack the eggs and whisk together to break the yolks.
- While whisking, add the milk, cinnamon and nutmeg.
- Dip both sides of the Irish Soda Bread slices into the milk, egg and spice mixture.
- Transfer dipped bread onto top of the greased griddle or skillet.
- Keep on for 3-5 minutes and then flip the slice onto the other side.
- The top should be golden brown. If it is not, you may want to flip the slice back over until that side is fully cooked.
- Repeat for each slice.
- Once done, serve with powdered sugar, raisins, fruit and maple syrup.
For toppings I used powdered sugar, maple syrup, raisins, blueberries or your choice of fruit.
