Prep Time: 20 min Total Time: 20 min Servings: 4
4 large eggs
1 cup parmesan, grated
2 tablespoons milk
small amount of sea salt (the cheese is salty)
cracked black pepper
2 tablespoons butter, divided
1 garlic clove, minced
4 slices French Bread, 1-inch thick
8 ounces fresh baby spinach leaves, slightly chopped
In a large bowl whisk eggs, milk, cheese (reserve 4 teaspoons for topping), salt and pepper until blended. Dip both sides of bread into mixture letting it soak for at least 5 minutes.
Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a large non-stick frying pan over medium heat, add bread to hot pan; cook for 2–3 minutes each side or until golden. Remove from pan to paper towels, cover and keep warm.
Add remaining 1 tablespoon butter to the pan with the garlic, cook for 1 minute. Add spinach, cook an additional 1 minute more or just until wilted.
Arrange French toast on individual plates, top with spinach and the reserved cheese. Serve with refreshing orange slices.
