Crispy Salt and Pepper French Toast

This savoury French toast is so ridiculously easy to make, and requires ingredients we all usually have on hand.

French toast:

5 eggs

3 Tbsp salt

1 tsp salt

2 Tbsp black pepper

1 1/2 Tbsp green onions, finely chopped (optional)

1 1/2 Tbsp cilantro, finely chopped (optional)

vegetable oil


8 (1/2" thick) slices day-old bread, cut on the diagonal




1. In a bowl or baking dish, beat together eggs with half-and-half, salt, pepper, green onions, and cilantro.

2. Heat a medium or large skillet over medium-high heat.  Cover the bottom of the skillet with vegetable oil and add a tablespoon or two of butter for taste.

3. Dip the bread triangles into the egg batter, drain off any excess, and place straight into the hot pan.  Fry for 2 to 3 minutes on each side - you want to develop a golden-brown color and the texture should be crispier than traditional French toast.  Place cooked toasts on a paper towel-lined plate or rack to drain.

4. In a small bowl, mix together ketchup and hot sauce to your desired heat tolerance.

5. Serve toasts warm with a side of the spicy ketchup.
