Springtime Brunch :: Brioche French Toast
For batter: 1 cup crème fraiche or sour cream 2 cups milk 6 eggs 1 oz brandy or… 2 TSP vanilla ½ cup sugar 2 tsp salt Orange or lemon zest Nutmeg
For toast: 6 slices bread 1” thick, with pocket cut from small hole on one side 6 oz mascarpone 8 oz marmalade
Combine all ingredients and whisk together until well-combined.
With jam and cheese in piping bags, fill each piece of bread, being careful to not over-fill, and keeping the ingredients within the pocket and away from the opening.
Dip each slice in batter and allow to soak thoroughly, then drain well. On a hot griddle, begin by searing the opening, ensuring that it has cooked shut before continuing to cook until golden brown on both sides. Serve immediately.
