We rarely have a loaf of bread on hand, except when it’s tomato season. So for brunch today I went with a savory French Toast recipe that incorporated fresh herbs, tomatoes, and Indian spices. Masala Egg Toast might be a new favorite.
Combine egg, cream, diced tomato or salsa, scallion, cilantro, Garam masala, ground ginger, salt & pepper. Dip bread slices in mixture, turning so they are well coated and egg mixture is absorbed. Pan fry Masala Egg Toast in butter until golden brown on each side. Serve with spicy tomato jam.
Every delicious bite is bursting with flavor. Garam masala brings a warmth while the scallion and cilantro add just the right fresh herb balance. We had just made a batch of spicy tomato jam the night before, which paired perfectly with the egg toast. It’s nice to have a new easy go-to brunch dish. Masala Egg Toast you’re a keeper.
