quinoa french toast


T
he overwhelming desire to make something French is consuming me. Due to limited time constraints and the need to keep the fridge bare due to our upcoming trip the only thing I could come up with was 'pain perdu' 'lost bread' or as we here in America call - French Toast.



My favorite french toast would have to be challah bread - the egginess gets to new levels - but the only lost bread we have around here right now is quinoa, so quinoa it is.



Trust me this is not some wierd meat - just old bread or should I say ye olde brot?


Dont forget to send in your entries for BSI potato - the polls close early this week ie; Saturday - so that I can get the post together before we leave Sunday morning. There has been a fantastic response.

Bread getting a bit stale reminds me to make French toast! Takes the batter well, and it's good AND cheap!

Parita said...

french toast is a personal favorite, and this is such a unique version! i enjoy quinoa, and it's so darn good for you, i wouldn't feel so guilty about the sea of maple syrup i would inevitably add. :)

girlichef said...

This sounds delicious! Quinoa Bread...cool. And it's time for breakfast, too (but I'll have to settle for regular old bread). Yum!

Looks delicious, and I haven't had breakfast yet so this is taunting me!
