Your Reluctant Housewife,
Baked French Toast
10 pieces of Brioche bread (or something fluffy)
1 tsp almond extract
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup milk
1/3 cup heavy whipping cream (if you want to indulge)
Wisk together your eggs, milk, sugar, heavy whipping cream and vanilla. Dip and cover each piece of bread and place into a glass oven safe dish. Fan out each piece of bread. Place in fridge for one hour. I'm not sure why, but that's what I was taught. After an hour place in a 350 degree oven for 20 minutes. Done!
Pancetta, Green Apple and Chedder Frittata
2 green apples sliced thinly
1 tsp olive oil
two cloves garlic
1 cup chedder
salt and pepper
3 tbsp pancetta
Mix eggs, salt and pepper, chedder and pancetta together in a bowl. Heat a tsp of olive oil in a pan on medium heat and pour egg mixure into the pan. Cook until a base starts to form at the bottom of the pan. The top of your frittata should still be runny. Place apple slices along the top of the frittata and place into a 350 degree oven for 20 minutes. Serve!
Both the baked french toast and frittata can be baked at the same temperaure and amount of time. Bake them together for the best brunch EVER!
