Pain Perdu


While living in France, I picked up a fair amount of delicious French recipes that keep on turning in my kitchen (I´m making quiche with ridiculous regularity, I could eat croque monsieur three times a week, and don´t even get me started on macarons!). And yet, given my love for bread & berries, I can hardly believe, that it took me this long to make pain perdu with berry sauce!
 On workdays, breakfast in our place is quite a simple and straightforward matter: cereals, toast, cafĂ© au lait. There´s really no time for me to experiment. But I really love to get out of the rut on weekends! Trying new and intriguing recipes is always so fun!. This pain perdu was definitely a huge success, and it will surely become a brunch staple.
Next on my list: pears & ricotta croque monsieur!



Please, help Macarons and Pearls to grow, and follow my blog for more stylish updates:

  2. Wow, so yummy! I should experiment a little bit more with my and my family's breakfast.
    The easiest is to stick with the same routine and eat the same kind of breakfast for weeks.

  6. Mmm I want this immediately! I read this and was like, oh, it's French toast! Then I realized you said you picked it up in France- guess it makes sense they wouldn't call it "French toast!". I've never had it with berries though, it looks sooo good! Definitely making this this weekend, yum.
