About one-third of the way through the loaf of Brioche bread I made Friday night, I realized the loaf was slightly undercooked. The tell-tale sign? A big, gaping hole in the middle of the bread. So sad, I know. Especially because I was slicing the bread to make myself a grilled cheese sandwich. Not one who likes to waste food I decided to turn the disastrous middle of the Brioche loaf into brunch: crispy and chewy bites of Brioche French toast.
- 6 slices of homemade bread, cubed (approximately one and a half-inch pieces)
- 1/4 c. flour
- 1/2 c. milk
- 1 egg
- Mix flour, milk, and egg and pour into a shallow dish. Place bread cubes in the egg mixture and let soak for a few minutes on each side.
- In a small pot, heat oil (I used canola) over medium heat. Place the bread cubes in the pot and fry until golden brown on each side.
- Sprinkle with powdered sugar. Serve with butter and maple syrup, if desired.
