A great breakfast keeps the doctors away… so here is an awesome and tested recipe cooked completely in the kitchen of Casa Artista.

Super Soft and Custard-y Japanese Style French Toast

This Japanese tamagoyaki-inspired french toast is soft and custardy on the inside and crisp on the outside. The perfect combination of sweet and savory!

Serves 2

Prep Time 10 mins

Cook Time 20 mins

Total Time 30 mins

Ingredients

  • 2 slices thick-cut bread
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup cream
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp soy
  • 1 tbsp mirin
  • oil for the pan

To Serve

  • whipped cream
  • maple syrup
  • cubed mango or any fruit of your preference

Instructions

Trim the crusts off the bread and set aside.

In a liquid measuring cup, whisk together the eggs, cream, sugar, soy, and mirin. If you want to go the extra mile, strain the egg mixture.

Divide the egg mixture equally between two shallow bowls and add one slice of bread to each. Let soak for 1-2 hours covered, in the fridge, then very gently flip and let soak, covered, for another hour to two.

When ready to cook, heat up a non-stick pan over very low heat. Add a touch of oil and add the custard soaked bread (let the excess drip back into the shallow bowl) and cook, over low heat, covered, for about 10 minutes, until slightly golden on the bottom side. Gently flip and continue to cook, covered, until the other side is golden and the toast is puffy.

Serve and enjoy hot, either unadorned or with whipped cream, syrup, cubed mango and if desired, toasted pine nuts.

The Toast was thoroughly enjoyed in the Sunroom of Casa Artista, our newly renovated vacation home located in Safety Harbor, Florida.
