Toast with Cinnamon and Red Berry Sauce


I know,  I know…I already hear you say….this one goes to the hips!!  Once in a while on a lazy Sunday morning cook someone special in your life this tasty brunch recipe.  I promise you’ll try it more than once…. It’s ‘berry’ delicious…!!

METHOD

  • To prepare the red berry sauce: Combine all the berries and sugar in a blender and puree until smooth.
  • Strain the berry puree through a fine sieve, discarding the seeds, and into a small saucepan.
  • Place the saucepan over medium-low heat and simmer for 2 minutes, stirring frequently.
  • Remove from the heat and keep warm while preparing the French toast.
  • To prepare the French toast: Using a fork, beat the eggs in a 13×9 baking dish to blend. Place the slices of brioche in the eggs and let stand for 5 minutes, or until the eggs are absorbed, turning the brioche slices once.
  • Melt the butter on a heavy large griddle pan over medium heat.
  • Add the brioche slices to the hot pan and cook for about 2 minutes per side, or until golden brown on the outside and heated through.
  • Meanwhile, stir the sugar and cinnamon on a large plate; set aside. Immediately place the hot French toast in the cinnamon-sugar and turn to coat completely.
  • Divide the French toast among 4 serving plates.
  • Top with a dollop of crème fraîche. Spoon the berry puree over the French toast.
  • Scatter the fresh berries over and serve immediately.
