White Peach Bourbon French Toast

White Peach Bourbon French Toast

(4 servings)    Printable Version
  • 6 large eggs
  • 2 Tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup white peaches - pureed
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 4 slices day old brioche - sliced
  • 4 Tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 4 Tablespoons vegetable oil

  • White Peach-Pecan Maple Syrup:
  • 1 cup pure maple syrup
  • 4 ripe white peaches - peeled & pitted then cut into slices
  • 1/4 cup toasted pecans - chopped
  • 1/2 cup bourbon
  • mint sprigs for garnish
Whisk together eggs, sugar and salt in a large bowl. Add the milk, cream and peach puree and vanilla and whisk until combined. Place brioche in a large baking dish, pour custard over and turn to coat. Let sit for 5 minutes.

Heat 2 tablespoons of butter and 2 tablespoons of oil in a large nonstick saute pan over high heat. Add 4 slices of the soaked bread and cook until golden brown, flip over and continue cooking until golden brown on the second side.

For The Syrup:

Heat maple syrup over low heat in a medium saucepan. Add the peaches, pecans and bourbon and let simmer for 10 minutes.

Place 1 slice of the French toast on a plate, ladle some of the peach syrup on top. Top with a second slice of toast and ladle more of the peaches on top. Garnish with a mint sprig.

For best results, don't slice the brioche super thick. About 1/2-inch thick works great. The syrup in this recipe works great on anything. Try it on waffles or pancakes too.
