Prep Time: 20 min   Total Time: 20 min   Servings: 4


Ingredients
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

Directions

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 23 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.


Wine recommendation: Pinot Gris; Chardonnay
