Epicurean French Toast

I bought a Rye Grain loaf last Friday. There was only 3 slices of bread in this loaf. As I was going to travel back to KL on Monday (which means I am now in KL by the way, wanna date me for lunch?), I wasn’t going to go for my usual grocery run and intended for this loaf to be breakfast on Saturday and Sunday.

I didn’t have any on Saturday. I had a visitor and we went out for brunch instead..

On Sunday, as I was contemplating having these bread with some of those lovely Golden Churn butter and the Camembert cheese,Β I discovered that I have 1 egg left in the fridge. So… 10 minutes of work later…

What I did was slather the butter on both sides of each slice of the rye grain bread. Then I whisked the egg up and dipped the breads into the egg. Then I cut two thick slices of the cheese and began constructing my sandwich. Egg battered bread, cheese, bread, cheese, bread.

Then I placed the stack on the pan, preheated with a knob of butter. One minute on each side. I mean all 6 sides of the stack.

And it’s done. That’s my epicurean french toast sandwich, with expensive bread, expensive butter and expensive cheese..

  1. This looks so good! I love French toast!! But I feel like the middle slice must not have gotten browned/crisped. I would make all the french toast pieces separately and then make the sandwich and just heat it up slightly again in the pan to melt the cheese!

    • I was too lazy for what, so I just constructed th sandwich and slapped the whole thing into the pan and pray that everything works out. πŸ˜€

  2. Even fried one bread also you could attract the world’s attention to hear your yummy cries! Salute you!

    I could imagine their combo would please me too as I used to enjoy them even with cheapo roti. Today I learnt a new word ~ Epicurean French Toast

    • Don’t tell me you don’t know what French toast is, LOL! Epicurean means maximum sensual pleasure. It could mean different things to different people. Maybe a vegan would consider a salad as an epicurean meal. XD

    • I might disappoint you. I have been cooped up at home so far.. Tonight will be my first meal outside. πŸ˜›

  3. wah, sedapnyer…I guess my mum will whack me for “wasting” an expensive bread for a French toast! Expensive bread to us is meant to be eaten solely even without jam!

  4. The sandwich actually looks very good. I take your word for it. I could eat that for breakfast and lunch every day…maybe throw in a slice of ham or luncheon meat while I’m at it πŸ˜€

    Would totally catch up with you over a meal if I’m in KL and you’re there at one point. Or in Penang. Or somewhere in the world if the time is right πŸ˜€

      • Oh yes. Who knows. But it’s certainly cheaper for me to come to Malaysia. I’m surprised tourists are still keen on coming to Austalia since it’s pricey over here.

        Also, I’ve never seen French Toast made that way here in Melbourne. It’s always served with sweet things on top here.

        By the way, how do you do that eyeball smiley?

        • Well, when we travel, it is always to go and see places that we have never seen. Prices are usually of secondary concern once you have saved enough. Australia is a lovely place, and a separate continent, of course it is popular! πŸ˜‰

          A basic French toast would be egg coated bread, deep fried. Of course different places serve it differently. Usually Malaysian cafes would serve it with a splash of honey and a knob of butter on top. I’m also cheated by infusing some Camembert cheese in between the sandwich. πŸ˜€

          : r o l l : without the spaces = πŸ™„

  5. Eh, when I read your title, I was like “ala, french toast say french toast la, apasal pulak ada Epicurean nie”.. Hehe, forgive me ahh, my broken England.. Wahlahhhhh, huge toast man !! I so “tai sik” also I don’t think I can finish it leh.. Must telan with Milo only can finish I think..

  6. oh yeah, i would love to eat this!!! it would be so much easier to use a pan than to use the toaster oven.. i did my grilled cheese sandwich using that small little toaster oven and it’s so troublesome.. wah, expensive bread, expensive butter, expensive cheese.. the egg?? expensive or not?? πŸ˜€

  7. Wow, your french toast is so rich! After eating this, you have to eat two bowls of oats with raisins to balance it out.

    • That would be counterproductive. I had this for breakfast, I skipped lunch and had a later wedding dinner. That was how I balanced it out πŸ˜›

      • I don’t mean eat the oats immediately but to eat a small bowl of oats for lunch and for dinner. We should not be skipping meals.

        I read an article that says: “a new study of mice suggests skipping meals may disrupt metabolism in a way that leads to extra fat accumulating around the middle and signs of pre diabetes.”

        I am always on watch for these things because diabetes run in my family – I am prone to diabetes due to genes.

        Here’s the full article if you are interested:

        • I don’t intentionally skip meals. I skip when I had an earlier heavy meal and didn’t feel hungry at all.

          It is good to be accustomed to these information and practice what you learned as prevention before anything happens. When you begin to fall sick due to diabetes reasons, then it is already too late to do much to recover your body πŸ™

  8. Whoa! That’s a very rich French toast. Looks so good, all nicely browned. How can it not be delicious with all that Golden Churn butter and Camembert cheese πŸ™‚ So how long are you staying in KL?

    • Going back on Saturday. But I’m already booked for Thursday and Friday lunch LOL! πŸ˜›
