Two Cheese French Toast with Garlic Kale and Egg | Fabtastic Eats What I really want to just talk about are these French Toast. So instead of babbling on about something irrelevant to this most important topic, we’re just going to jump right in.

Because they’re amaze-balls. <—totally just used that word.

But really they ARE.

Two Cheese French Toast with Garlic Kale and Egg | Fabtastic Eats The amount of times we’ve crusted our french toast in cheese, is starting to outweigh the classic sweetened version. It’s just SO MUCH BETTER.

Well maybe. Sure classic French Toast has it’s place, and I’m definitely not hating on it, because I love it for sure, yes yes. But you know when you want a savory breakfast? That’s like me…every weekend. And THIS is perfection.

Two Cheese French Toast with Garlic Kale and Egg During the week I’m all about juicing, smoothies, Greek yogurt with berries, granola, oatmeal with fruit, you know..the sweeter side of things. Come Saturday and Sunday, the bacon’s a fryin’.

I absolutely love these french toast. On this particular occasion, I used both Parmesan and Extra Sharp White Cheddar. Do it. I used a fresh loaf of crusty Italian Bread, and while we didn’t eat the entire loaf in one sitting between two of us, (just 2 days!), I did cook the entire loaf.

Two Cheese French Toast with Garlic Kale and Egg Let me tell you something…this cheese crusted bread makes EXCELLENT sandwiches. Say BLT’s? Or whatever your heart fancies. So cook the entire loaf, even if there are just two of you, reheat the bread in the toaster so it stays crispy on the outside, and make a sandwich OR just use it the next day for this same amazing breakfast.

Two Cheese French Toast with Garlic Kale and Egg You’ve got the two-cheese crusted french toast, topped with garlicky kale, a runny egg and sprinkled with cripsy bacon. Drizzle on a little hot sauce if you so desire, and you’ve got one helluva dish.

Ingredients

    Kale
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 bunch kale, washed and remove the leaves from the stalk, roughly chopped
  • salt and pepper
  • French Toast
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup freshly shredded parmesan
  • 1/2 teaspoon mustard powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cholula (or hot sauce of choice!)
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 loaf crusty Italian bread, cut int 1/2 inch pieces
  • Cooking Spray
  • 1 cup freshly shredded extra sharp white cheddar
  • To Top
  • Eggs (I only served four slices of french toast, so only cooked four eggs. Cook as many eggs as the toast you're serving. The cooked french toast reheats great, so you can always have more the next day with freshly cooked eggs!)
  • 8 slices Bacon, cooked til crispy, then crushed to bits

Directions

  1. To make the kale, heat the olive oil in a medium sized skillet over medium-low heat. Stir the garlic into the olive oil until it starts to sizzle
  2. Add the kale and cook for about five minutes, tossing occasionally. Cover and set aside.
  3. In a medium sized mixing bowl, add the eggs, milk, Parmesan, mustard powder, salt, cholula, minced garlic, and black pepper. Whisk together for 2-3 minutes.
  4. Preheat griddle to 350°, spray with cooking spray.
  5. Handling two pieces of french toast at a time, begin soaking in the batter, flipping and really swirling it against the sides of the bowl, so it picks up the cheese. Repeat until you've used up all your bread.
  6. Add to your griddle,and sprinkle with cheddar cheese, and press it down. Cook 2-3 minutes before flipping. Cook 2-3 minutes more, until each side is golden brown.
  7. Remove and from the griddle, place on a plate, top with garlicky kale, an egg, and sprinkled with crispy bacon. Enjoy!
  8. Sprinkle
