As I was dipping my brioche in the delicious egg-y mixture, Jake (our Editorial Director) comes up to me and asks, “How long are you soaking your bread for?” A question that never even occurred to me, but made me wonder in a true Carrie Brandshaw moment: Is French toast a simple breakfast dish or is it a way of life? A question I only could answer with a recipe by Jenny Goycochea from So Much Food Blog: this ethereal Wild Blueberry Rosé Syrup and Brioche French Toast!
This week, I wanted to switch things up and make something y’all could make in the morning for your friends, roomies, lover(s) whoever. I mean also for yourself, but do people make french toast Han Solo?
I digress, and I also have a confession to make. I never eat breakfast. I wouldn’t go as far as saying I hate it, but I just don’t understand it. Don’t get me wrong come Saturday I’ll be brunchin’ like a bo$$ and best believe the bellinis will be flowing! But back to my confusion over breakfast, why have eggs when you can have a burger? Why have an omelet when you can have a salad? I think my main beef with breakfast is that I do not like to be told what to do or what to eat and breakfast food is literally the definition of a restrictive menu!
Things started to change when I tried Sara Tane’s Vanilla Almond Milk Pancakes with Almond Butter Drizzle. They were pillowy soft and tasted like sunshine. So, I was open to trying new things and exploring the wide world of breakfast! Queue this Brioche French Toast with Wild Blueberry Rosé Syrup! I have literally NO NOTES. This recipe was bomb(dot)com and I loved every bite. It was so easy to follow and the end result is beyond stunning, I hope you make it! -- Sahara Bohoskey, Community Manager.
