Savory French Toast

I’m not sure if savory french toast is already a thing but I like to think that this is my mom’s own creation! It’s cozy, crispy, and absolute perfection.

If there’s one thing my mom is adamant about, it’s wasting food (and specifically, bread). Whenever we had leftover baguettes from one too many tuna sandwiches, my mom sliced the loaf up, soaked the pieces in egg, and deep-fried it for the most delicious breakfast side. It was always a treat coming down to find these on a rushed school morning.

Now, I’m taking my time and serving it with roasted balsamic cherry tomatoes, a poached egg, and a za’atar and aleppo pepper olive oil drizzle.
