Hey friends, so how is your holiday shopping going? We haven’t really started yet, although Rhonda finally got our Christmas cards in the mail. We are moving down that holiday checklist, which brings us to talk about holiday traditions. What traditions do you hold dear during the holidays? We told you last week about how we like to drive around and look at lights and then end the night with some yummy hot chocolate. Craig’s family always woke up early on Christmas morning to unwrap presents. Rhonda’s family attended midnight mass, so Santa always magically came while we were at mass. We found our presents under the tree after getting home around 1:30 am. We would oohhh and aaahhh and then sleep in on Christmas morning. Funny how that happened, right?
This week we are sharing an easy, tasty and fresh recipe for you to serve for breakfast Christmas morning or if you have holiday guests staying at your house. This recipe is tastes complicated and delicious. Whether you are trying to impress houseguests or just want to make a special breakfast for your honey, it is sure to delight. The best thing is that it is soooo easy! You will feel a little guilty when your loved ones keep bragging about the delicious breakfast they had.
Rhonda found this recipe on the kerrygold usa site. We know. We know. Another Kerrygold recipe? It is just so hard to resist, because Kerrygold Irish Cream goes well with so many things!
You make this recipe much like most French toast recipes. The big difference is a tablespoon of Kerrygold in the egg mixture that the bread is soaked in and a Kerrygold sauce that you drizzle over the top when serving.
To start you will preheat your skillet over medium heat and add butter. Of course we added Kerrygold butter, because once we started using it for baking and cooking none of the other butters can compare.
Do you have a cast iron skillet? We love ours. Rhonda requested it for Christmas a couple of years ago. We know it is not very romantic, but it has been one of her favorite gifts ever. Yes, ever! It is so easy to use when cooking and it helps food cook very evenly.
While melting the butter, whisk together milk, eggs, sugar and Kerrygold. Dunk each bread slice into the mixture for about 5 seconds and then place in the skillet. We used some French bread that we had on hand. The thicker the slice the more decadent your French toast will taste and look.
Cook each slice of bread for about 3-4 minutes and until golden brown on each side.
You can make the sauce while the toast is cooking. Whisk together Kerrygold, powdered sugar and cornstarch. That’s it.
Serve your toast with a pat of Kerrygold butter on the top and drizzle the sauce. So easy! Right? Now do you see why you will blush when friends and family are bragging on your delicious breakfast or brunch Christmas morning? You will make it all look so easy.
