French Toast Flavored with Triple Sec


There’s nothing like getting up early in the morning and cracking eggs for French toast, right?  It’s a thing that is usually reserved for an occasional weekend morning here.  The “kids” were all here for breakfast Christmas morning and this was what I made along with plenty of bacon and sausage, and forgot the pictures.








This is not “eggy” and not soggy either.  I added a little Triple Sec to flavor it up along with vanilla extract.  I usually make it with Texas Toast ~ not toasted as the name implies.  Stale bread works best.  You can fry it in melted butter but I usually put it on the griddle and save some calories. Either way, it has a crispy exterior with a creamy interior.

It melts in your mouth and is perfect for a lazy Sunday brunch!


French Toast Flavored with Triple Sec

Ingredients:

8 slices bread, stale 
3 eggs
1 cup milk
¼ cup Triple Sec
1 teaspoon vanilla
¼ teaspoon salt
Butter for frying, optional

Method:

Beat eggs and add milk.
Whisk in Triple Sec, vanilla and salt.
Dip bread in egg mixture and place on hot griddle or fry in melted butter in a skillet on medium heat a minute or two until golden brown.
Serve


Yum!!!

Do you like your French toast with syrup, powdered sugar or both?

Hi Pam! Thanks for stopping by!
I agree that there's nothing like good breakfast on Sunday morings. Although I didn't get a chance to eat breakfast as often as I wish but it's never too late right? :)

Pam said...

Triple Sec in French toast! Perfect!

Bridgett said...

Now this sounds delicious! I like mine plain, no syrup or powdered sugar but if I had to choose, maybe a little powdered sugar would work well.

I am a huge French toast fan. Yours looks great, triple sec sounds interesting. I like mine with lots and lots of maple syrup and I would not mind some powdered sugar too:)

Hahahaha. We're expecting more snow tonight and what with the usual panic-driven buyout of milk, bread, and eggs at the supermarkets around here, a local friend just commented that people will end up making boatloads of French Toast. Love the addition of triple sec in yours - but I'll have to save that for a true snow day :)

I like my french toast with fresh strawberries and syrup! Yum! We may be making breakfast for dinner tomorrow night. I think Texas toast is the best for recipes like this. I love the thick bread! Thanks for sharing, sweet woman. Eat well tomorrow!

Yum--what a great idea to add Triple Sec!

Mr. Bill said...

YUM!! My kind of breakfast....well, I'm awake, aren't I?

Powdered sugar...no way. Not even on donuts....nothing more icky than getting a slight inhale of powdered sugar. Ruins your day. Buttered syrup all the way for me!
