National French Toast Day falls just two days after Thanksgiving. Is this curious culinary timing the product of a fit of madness, or a stroke of genius? Either way you look at it, this holiday is not for the full of stomach, so here’s hoping you didn’t go back for that third slice of pumpkin pie after the rest of your family fell asleep.
For those of you looking to stay stuffed on the sweetness train through the weekend, Chef Teresa Hansen has griddled up an infused French toast recipe that’ll slap a permanent, eggy grin on your face. And while we can’t vouch for the flavor experience of pairing this breakfast with leftover mashed potatoes, we can promise a good time with butter that infuses live rosin concentrates for an extra smooth experience.
While you pour on the syrup and slice up some fresh berries to put on top, let your mind start to expand with this brain-busting thought: French toast actually originated in 5th century Rome. What to do with that tasty bit of trivia, we don’t know. Let’s just be thankful for the dabby deliciousness that is this recipe.
Eggnog French Toast
With Infused Orange Butter
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Yield: 4 french toast, 25mg THC per French toast
4 tablespoons butter, melted
100mg Sol Flower Live Rosin (Mandarin Dreams pairs well!)
1 tablespoons orange zest (zest of 1 orange)
½ cup eggnog
¼ teaspoon cinnamon
4 extra thick bread slices (Texas toast works great!)
1. Mix together melted butter with a small dab size amount* of Live Rosin. Mix until rosin fully melts. Butter needs to be hot enough for the rosin to fully melt and infuse. Once fully mixed stir in orange zest and set aside.
2. Whisk together eggnog, egg, cinnamon and salt in a medium bowl large enough to dip a slice of bread.
3. Heat a large non-stick skillet with butter over medium high heat. Dip each slice of bread in eggnog mixture, both sides of bread, then add to hot skillet. Cook about 2-3 minutes on each side until golden brown.
4. Serve French toast with infused orange butter (1 tablespoon per serving = 25mg THC). Serve with powdered sugar, oranges, pomegranate seeds and syrup.
**Depending on your dose, reduce or increase the amount of live rosin. Take 1 gram of concentrate and split it into 10 “dab” size amounts in order to roughly estimate 100mg for this recipe**
