Tastefully Yours – French Toast with Fried Sausages

I don’t have much of a sweet tooth. I prefer savory over sweet anytime.  So when it comes to the usual French Toast, I steer clear of it.  My version  has the usual eggs and milk (normal not sweetened) but along with that I have also added a spice mix of cardamom, cinnamon, mace, star anise and pepper, a sprinkle of cayenne pepper and grated mozzarella cheese and NO sugar.  Soak the bread in this mixture and bang it on a griddle that’s on low heat.  A serving of fried sausages and you have your  day made 🙂

By the way French Toast is not of French origin but way older. The earliest known reference to French toast is in the Apicius, a collection of Latin recipes dating to the 4th or 5th century; the recipe mentions soaking in milk, and sometimes with egg,  and gives it no special name, just aliter dulcia “another sweet dish”. (source: Wikipedia).

There is obviously no alternative to the veggies. The eggetarians can lose the sausages

    Looks delicious 🙂 I love french toast … but without the maple syrup which most of the caffe’s serve here.

    Yum – What time is breakfast? I’ll be there!
    Interesting history about French toast. I must say it’s great stuff, so it’s easy to believe it’s been a classic that stood the test of time.

    I’ve never had non-sweet French toast, but it does sound intriguing! I’ll have to try it some day.

    Yum, this looks great!!

  11. Looks and sounds delicious – haven’t had French toast in awhile – though I would leave out the sausages. Never heard of an ‘eggetarian’ before! Like that word, though I think you meant vegan perhaps? 😉 <3

      An eggetarian is one who eats only beg and eggs 🙂 A vegan of course not

    Looks and sounds delicious but I would prefer my sausages whole not sliced as the flavour stays inside the sausage that way!
