For weekends, when I'm not too tired, I like to make up a nice brekky for the family. Today I tried making French toast with ciabatta, which is an Italian bread.
It turned out great. I love to cut it into thick slices so the eggy custard gets soaked into it giving it a pancake like texture and it seeps right into the holes of the bread. I fried it in lots of butter for that extra flavour.
To serve, I sprinkled cinnamon sugar with fresh strawberries on the side. We also poured a splash of maple syrup. (The real stuff, not the maple flavoured syrup)
