I have a new blog that I am IN LOVE WITH!  I Am A Food Blog … check it out!  The photographs are amazing.  Can’t you tell from above?!  These aren’t french fries.  Nope.  This is Caramelized French Toast.  How delicious does that sound?!!  And how delicious do these look?!

I just love this photo.  The brown sugar looks like gold!

French Toast 3

These are very simple to make and serve up about 6 sticks.  If you have a bigger family, you might need to double or even triple that. I feel like I could east 6 of these on my own!

Stephanie Le, the photographer and cook, is oh so sweet and talented … obvi!  I’m sure we are going to see more and more of her.  This blog is a hit!

CARAMELIZED FRENCH TOAST RECIPE
I Am A Food Blog
adapted from bonappetit.com
yield: 6 french toast sticks

5 inch piece of baguette, cut into 6 sticks
1 egg
2 tablespoons milk
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 tablespoon butter, at room temperature

Mix the butter and brown sugar in a bowl until thoroughly blended. Set aside. Whisk the egg, vanilla and cinnamon in a shallow bowl.

In a non-stick skillet, melt a bit of the brown sugar butter mixture over medium heat. Swirl the pan around so the sugar mixture is evenly distributed. Dip the baguette sticks 1 at a time in the egg mixture to coat and then place in the pan. Cook until the bottoms are deep brown and caramelized. Keep a close eye on the sticks so the sugar doesn’t burn. When the first side is brown and caramelized, melt more brown-sugar in the pan and turn the French toast sticks. Repeat until all four sizes are caramelized. Enjoy hot!
