A breakfast that includes bourbon?

There isn’t much to think about when it comes to this.

The only thing I’m thinking about is how quickly I can make another batch and scarf it down.

My family likes their bourbon.

In fact, it is the drink of choice.

We call it the ‘Lovett’ drink, after Mother Lovett.

Up until she passed away, she was enjoying her bourbon every night. You have to live a little, right?

 

 

I remember taking sips out of Mother Lovett’s bourbon concoctions when I was younger. I didn’t ever think it would grow on me, but it has.

Luckily, Mail Pouch tobacco has not grown on me, or any of us, considering my grandpa gave my cousin a nice little ‘taster’ where she was 5 years old.

It must be fun to be a grandparent?

 

 

Bourbon Peach French Toast

from Bobby Flay (with some slight adaptations)

Serves 2

4 eggs

1 tablespoons sugar

1/4 teaspoon salt

2 cups milk

1/4 cup heavy cream

1/4 cup white peach puree

2 tablespoons bourbon

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 teaspoon cinnamon

4 slices bread, sliced 1/2-inch thick (I used whole grain)

4 tablespoons butter

4 tablespoons canola oil

Whisk together eggs, sugar and salt in a large bowl. Add the milk, cream, bourbon and peach puree and vanilla and whisk until combined. Place bread in a large baking dish, pour mixture over and turn to coat. Let sit for 5 minutes.

Heat 2 tablespoons of butter and 2 tablespoons of oil in a large pan over high heat. Add 4 slices of the bread and cook until golden brown, flip over and continue cooking until golden brown on the second side. Top with bourbon peach syrup.

 

 

Bourbon Peach Syrup

1 cup maple syrup

4 ripe peaches, sliced

1/2 cup bourbon

Heat maple syrup over low heat in a saucepan. Add the peaches and bourbon and let simmer for about 10 minutes. Drizzle over french toast and add additional peach slices if desired.

 

 

 

 

Now I must go enjoy some bourbon for breakfast.

See ya on the flip side.

      Bobby Flay’s recipe actually does call for pecans, but I didn’t have any!! I think it would be amazing.

    I need to remember to always have French bread in the house, because you just can’t make French toast without it. I have used regular bread, and it is blah in comparison.

    I’ve actually never tried bourbon, but my roommate in college had an adorable dog named Bourbon. And I’ve never met a slice of French toast I didn’t like. So – this recipe looks like a winner.

    Even though I DESPISE bourbon, I really don’t mind foods that include bourbon. This French toast looks fantastic. I love peaches too. I can’t wait until they come to our farmer’s markets!
