Hills, this one's for you;)
what you need:
*serves 2-3, depending on hunger level
- 6 thick slices of day old bread (preferable not pre-sliced, and something savoury like a garlic or three cheese country loaf)
- 3 large eggs
- 3 tbsp milk
- 1 tbsp srirracha
- 3 strips of bacon (I like the taste and consistency of schneiders naturals) *omit bacon for vegetarian option*
- 1 green onion
- 1/3 cup coarse grated parmesan cheese
- 1/3 cup rolled oats (not the quick cooking kind)
- salt and pepper
- butter for frying
what to do:
- Cook bacon until crispy and pat dry on a paper towel.
- Thinly slice green onion (if you just washed it, make sure you dry it first with a paper towel). Crumble bacon into a shallow dish and add sliced onions, rolled oats, grated cheese. Toss to mix evenly.
- Crack eggs into a shallow dish that will fit your pieces of bread. Whisk in milk, srirracha, and add freshly ground pepper and a pinch or two of salt.
- Place slices of bread in the egg mixture and allow it to sit for about 1 minute on both sides to soak up egg mix. Next, place it into the oat mixture and press gently to make sure it sticks to the bread.
- In a non-stick pan on medium heat, melt 1 tsp of butter. Fry up french toast until golden brown on both sides, and then cover with a lid for 1-2 minutes to make sure the middle is cooked through.
- Serve hot and enjoy! I actually liked it with a little bit of maple syrup (sweet & savoury combo) - Ryan ate it with more srirracha!
