Amaretto French Toast
I had leftover French bread from dinner the other day, and one of my favorite ways to use up leftover bread is to make baked French toast. I’m also trying to use up various liquors, so as to avoid having to move them to Texas. The result? Amaretto French toast. (I don’t have a recipe, but for one _large_ serving: cut bread into cubes, place into one lightly greased (big) ramekin (or multiple little ones). Mix a couple eggs, some milk, a shot of amaretto, a couple teaspoons of sugar, a pinch of salt, and splash of vanilla. Pour liquid mixture over bread cubes, let sit 2-hours to overnight. Bake at 350-ish until it looks done…time will vary depending on size of ramekin. Top with strawberries that have been sprinkled with sugar and splashed with Amaretto.) It would have been even better with a touch of whipped cream, which I didn’t have on hand. I showed tremendous self-restraint and managed to photograph the finished result before eating it.
