The only thing better than a good recipe? When somethings so easy to make that you dont even need one. Welcome toIts That Simple, a column where we talk you through the process of making the dishes and drinks we can make with our eyes closed.
When I stopped eating steak, it was for environmental reasons and nothing else. So while that decision curbed my dinners emissions, it did nothing to curb my cravings. Sometimes, I wanted a slab of something absolutely lavish in the center of my plateand for whatever reason, a cauliflower steak just wasnt going to cut it.
Instead, my carnivores palate led me to the Bread Steak. A custard-soaked, Parmesan-crusted chunk of sourdoughessentially savory French toastthat really is decadent in the vein of a rib eye. Its fatty. Its salty. And if you do it right, its downright meaty.
To make it, I start by whisking together 2 large eggs, cup of whole milk, and Â½ teaspoon of salt in a bowl. Then, I lay 2-inch-thick slices of crusty sourdough bread in a shallow baking dish and pour the custard mixture over the bread. I'll let the bread soak for around 10 minutes, turning the slices once or twice. Then, Ill get a large nonstick or cast-iron skillet going over medium heat and turn on the broiler. I hit the pan with a drizzle of oil, lift the bread out of the baking dish and let any excess custard drip off, and carefully lay the slices into the pan and cook on both sides until golden brown, about 3 minutes per side. Then Ill shower the top sides of the slices with a good bit of grated Parmesan and a sprinkling of sugar, and then slide the skillet under the broiler until the cheese is browned and the slices are super crisp, about 2â€“3 minutes more. And voilÃ : Bread Steaks!
Im usually a small breakfast person happy with my yogurt and granola. But sometimes, I want a big, hearty breakfast. I love waffles, pancakes, and french toast, but even on those big breakfast days, I dont usually order them.
Instead my fiance is subject to me stealing 1 or 2 bites of his and calling it good while I get a smaller something or other thats far from indulgent! Frankly, all the syrup and powdered sugar, while scrumptious, is overwhelming to me. Thats why Ive turned to savory takes on traditional morning fare.
You could layer it over any veggies really zucchini, onions, bell peppers, you name it! I roasted the eggplant slices with just salt and pepper nothing fancy. erve it all withÂ roasted garlic marinaraÂ thats almost too easy to make and youve got a filling, healthier version of a classic meal.
What to serve with savory french toast?
I can think of three things to enjoy with this savory french toast. The first is a side of fruit anything seasonal would be great! This winter fruit platter heavenly! A side of protein bacon, chicken sausage, or ham would be fabulous.
Why let breakfast and brunch have all the fun with French Toast? This savory take on the classic dish is just as tasty and, possibly, more addictive. The marinara dipping sauce really sets it apart though!

The key to cooking these thick sandwiches is to keep the pan over low or medium-low heat. This will ensure you dont overcook or burn the outside before completely heating through the middle. Du kan forvente at lave hver side i 5 til 8 minutter eller mere, hvis det er nødvendigt. En Alternativ Kogemetode er at tilberede sandwicherne over mediumvarme i en ovnsikker stegepande i 3 minutter, flip og overfør til en 375 ovn i 15-18 minutter, eller indtil den er kogt igennem.
