Let’s get this french toast started by slicing up some thicker slices of regular ol’ french bread.
Next whisk together a few eggs, some heavy cream, a handful of parmesan, some fresh chopped parsley, and a dash of salt and pepper.
Soak your french bread slices in this heavenly mixture!
Grab a pan and in it melt a nice pat of butter over medium heat…
Then place your creamy, eggy, savory french bread in that pan.
Cook each side for 2 -3 minutes or until your bread turns golden brown.
Sure you could call that french toast breakfast and mom would absolutely love it, but don’t you think a sauce would make this breakfast even better?
I knew you’d say yes!
Melt a whole stick of butter in the microwave…
Then separate three eggs and place the yolks into a blender.
Turn the blender on low so the yolks can combine…
Now slowly add your hot butter to the yolks.
Your blender should stay on the whole time!
Now blend in 1/4 teaspoon of Dijon mustard…
The juice of one whole lemon…
And a dash of cayenne pepper.
Turn your blender off and try your homemade hollandaise sauce. Kind of amazing huh?
Sure a slice of that savory french toasts drizzled with the hollandaise sauce would totally impress mom, but don’t you want to blow her away?
Of course you do!
Very quickly sauté a handful of fresh spinach…
And fry up an egg.
Or you could be seriously fancy and poach an egg!
Ready for this?
Stack a couple french toast slices on a pretty plate, then top it with your sauteed spinach.
Place the fried egg on top of that…
And don’t be stingy with the hollandaise sauce!
A breakfast in bed any mother would love!!
Happy mothers day to my own mom. Thank you for telling me to nap when I am exhausted, whipping up a meal for me when I am hungry, fixing me a drink when I am happy and knowing which of these I need the most just by looking into my eyes. I love you so much!
