Just enjoyed this wonderful Brioche Brunch with my love WineCoach! I love brioche and all its delicious buttery glory. It’s a treat for me and I allow it every couple of months because….ya gotta live a little!!
This French toast doesn’t need much! The mixture is quite simple; these are the ingredients:
Brioche Berry Stuffed French Toast:
4 slices of brioche bread
2 cups mixed berries
2 tbsp mascarpone or low fat cream cheese (at room temperature)
2 tbsp hazelnut spread, warm (or nut butter)
1/4 cup maple syrup, warm
For the FRENCH TOAST mixture:
1/2 cup egg whites
1 tbsp ground cinnamon
1 tbsp coconut palm sugar
1/3 cup milk of choice
Whisk together all French toast mixture and set aside. Cut slices of brioche bread evenly. Use 1 tbsp of butter in a frying pan or griddle in medium heat. Dip the bread into mixture and place in frying pan. Until golden brown. Flip bread over in about 3-4 minutes. It will be done when both sides are golden brown.
Preheat oven at 350F.
Spread room temperature mascarpone on 2 of the slices. Layer with sliced strawberries or other berries you prefer. Top with warm hazelnut spread. Place other brioche slices over the top. Place in oven for about 3-5 minutes. Remove and add more fresh berries. Drizzle maple syrup over the top. Serve with whipped cream and silvered almonds.
For the Avocado Goat Cheese Brioche Toast
2 brioche slices
1/2 avocado, sliced
2 eggs, poached
1 oz goat cheese crumbles
Salt, pepper and herbs de province herbs
Lightly toast 2 brioche slices.
Add 1/4 avocado on each toast.
Sprinkle goat cheese crumbles evenly.
Poach 2 eggs for 3-4 minutes.
Add spices over the top and enjoy! Serve with fresh cherry tomatoes!
Poaching is easy!
Boil 4 cups of water in a small saucepan. It should be at least 3-4 inches from the bottom. Add 1 tbsp of vinegar of choice. I use apple cider vinegar. Swirl the water around and crack an Egg directly into water. You may crack the egg in a ramekin first to ensure it doesn’t break. Cover pan and Remove from heat. Let it sit for 3-4 minutes. I found that 4 minutes allow for perfect poach! Remove with slotted spoon to drain exceeds water. Place on top of your toast and enjoy! It sounds easy because it is!
I hope you enjoy this. It was truly delicious and a treat!
