Winter Brunch

For a cold morning like today with -10°C outside, you can never go wrong with french toast. I personally love the combination of sweet and savoury, so when it comes to sandwiched french toast I always have to drizzle them with a little bit of maple syrup. It's such a delight and a comfort to have them for breakfast!!!


Peppery Prosciutto French Toast


4 pieces of white bread (fresh from the store or homemade)
2 tbsp of finely chopped red onion
6 slices of prosciutto
60g of Gouda Cheese
2 eggs
2 tbsp milk
salt and pepper
a knob of butter
Maple Syrup

In a hot pan sautee the onions until tender. Then cook the prosciutto until crisp. Spread the bases of the bread with the sauteed onion, top with the prosciutto and Gouda cheese and sandwich with the tops. Whisk together the eggs, milk, pepper and salt in a bowl. Dip the sandwiches in the egg mixture and cook for 3 to 4 mins. on each side on a buttered pan until golden and the cheese is melted. Serve with a drizzle of maple syrup!
