I was about to make breakfast at my aunt’s house this weekend when I discovered a loaf of cranberry bread. I don’t particularly love any kind of loaf, but I love to do this little breakfast trick – Who would want regular French Toast when they could have Cranberry French Toast? With a little bit of peppered bacon for spice to complement the sweetness of this dish and a strong cup of coffee, this makes the perfect breakfast.
3 tbsp. milk or cream
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. vanilla
2 slices of cranberry loaf
Dried cranberries and orange zest to garnish
Boil the kettle and rehydrate the died cranberries to make them plump. Whisk together first 4 ingredients. Dip the loaf in the egg mixture and let sit until well absorbed. Fry on med heat until egg is cooked. Drizzle w/ maple syrup, cranberries and orange zest.
For peppered bacon, simply grind big chunks of black pepper over the bacon as it cooks.
