Tsoureki French Toast
3 large eggs
3 Tbsp. sugar
3/4 cup whole milk
zest and juice of 1/2 orange
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
8 slices of Tsoureki (Greek Easter Bread), cut into 1/2 inch slices - available at most Greek bakeries (or in the freezer at home following Easter!)
Approx. 4 Tbsp. of butter (for frying French toast)
- In a large shallow bowl, add cracked eggs, sugar, milk, zest and orange juice, vanilla and cinnamon and beat/whisk well. Place a large non-stick skillet on your stovetop over medium heat and add the butter. Meanwhile, dip the Tsoureki into the egg mixture and push the slices into the mixture to soak in for a minute.
- Cook in the pan for 2-3 minutes a side in batches and repeat with remaining Tsoureki slices (I recommend keeping the French toast warm in a pre-heated 250F oven).
- Top with Greek honey or maple syrup and a dusting of icing sugar.
- We recommend drizzling with our Wild Thyme Honey and serving with a pot of Wild Greek Tea
