Amaretto French Toast


The typical breakfast around our house is pretty basic – toast with some peanut butter or maybe oatmeal. It’s, you know, nothing noteworthy.

Every now and again however there are mornings that just beg for something a little indulgent. This jazzed up French toast recipe fits the bill.

Amaretto French Toast
Serves 2


  • 4 slices sprouted grain bread
  • 2 local eggs
  • 1/4 cup local milk
  • 1 Tablespoon Amaretto
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 Tablespoon local unsalted butter
  • 1 Tablespoon powdered sugar (optional)


  1. Heat a griddle over medium-high heat.
  2. In a large bowl whisk together the eggs, milk, amaretto, vanilla, cinnamon and salt.
  3. Dip each slice of bread into the egg mixture, allowing bread to soak up some of the mixture.
  4. Add the tablespoon of butter to the hot griddle and let it melt.
  5. Working in batches, add a couple slices of the soaked bread onto the griddle. Fry until golden brown on both sides, flipping when necessary. Repeat.
  6. Serve with fruit, a dusting of powdered sugar and, of course, real maple syrup!
