Today I opened my fridge and realized my Baileys Irish Cream was expiring. Sign #95732 i’m getting old: alcohol is EXPIRING in my fridge. Nuff’ said.
For best ooey gooey french toast results; I would highly recommend soaking the bread in the mixture overnight. You want the french toast to fall apart in your mouth, but remain perfectly fried and crispy on the outside. Also by soaking overnight, you’ll get the full Baileys Cream flavour.
Enjoy the long weekend- happy Easter!
Serves 2 (or 1 really boozy person)
- 3 pieces of bread (regular, challah, baguette…)
- 1/4 cup milk
- 3 Tbsp Baileys Irish Cream
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp white sugar
- 1 tsp brown sugar
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- 1/8 tsp nutmeg
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- butter in pan
In large bowl, whisk all ingredients. Add bread one at a time, soaking completely. (For best results: soak overnight in container). Heat large pan on medium heat with butter, and cook each piece of bread about 3-5 minutes each side. Serve with maple syrup, fresh whipped cream, fruit, or mint.
-I used regular ‘toast’ bread, but if you really want to impress someone, pick up some challah bread.
-If you don’t have Baileys in you fridge, try using apple sauce, chocolate milk, maple syrup, coconut milk & pineapple- the options are endless.
Music: Todays music is from Beach House. It took a while for them to grow on me, but they have… and it was worth the wait. So here’s my favourite song, “Wild”. A great morning song, running song, car song, let’s-make-baileys-irish-toast-song… basically it’s awesome.
