One of the goals at our Kennebunkport bed and breakfast is to make sure to provide gourmet meals that you won’t get at home, and with that in mind, we concoct inventive recipes that are sure to satiate even the heartiest of appetites! And for that very reason, we were recently featured on “Think Tasty,” a fabulous food blog, for our delectable Savory Parmesan French Toast. Yes, I said “savory.” And “French toast.” In the same breath. Honestly, it’s one of my absolute favorite recipes! Now this recipe may be seen by some as non-
traditional, it has become a favorite staple at the Maine Stay Inn. We’re so honored that “Think Tasty” approves of our recipe enough to post it on their website and hope you’ll enjoy it too!
Here are the basics of our Savory Parmesan French Toast Recipe: In a large bowl, soak 12 slices of baguette (sliced diagonally 3/4″ thick) in a blended mixture of 1 cup milk, 3 eggs, and seasoning (black and cayenne pepper, and garlic powder). Put a dollop of butter in a 9″x13″ glass pan in a 350 degree oven until melted and bubbly. Remove from the oven and add soaked bread, then top with about a half cup of grated (not the powdered kind!) parmesan cheese. Remove after about 25 minutes, when the bread is gently puffed and and golden brown. Each person gets three slices of bread, topped with baby field greens tossed in olive oil, vinegar, and salt and pepper to taste and two poached eggs. Sprinkle with a touch of parmesan and enjoy right away!
And trust me on this – it might not seem like it will satisfy the big league appetites in your house, I can vouch for the fact that this one is deceptively hearty! As you may know, we always offer homemade granola as a third course, and when this gets dished up, you’ll never have room for more!
