Bourbon Peach French Toast.
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?

I can’t wait until colorado peaches are in season!! I had no idea they even grew here. I’m a sucker for french toast, so this sounds amazing…how bout some roasted bourbon maple pecans on top? :)
Bobby Flay’s recipe actually does call for pecans, but I didn’t have any!! I think it would be amazing.
Mmm, french toast… I’ve never had Bourbon, but this looks seriously amazing. I love your Mother Lovett :D

Breakfast + booze on a weekend…doesn’t get any better! haha
Mmmmm French Toast is delicious but the addition of bourbon sounds lovely! I love Mother Lovett, she sounds like an amazing person!
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.
Mmm, peach season is getting near. :) I just posted about a beach and blueberry cobbler!
*peach. . . but it would be better on the beach. ;)
Well that just kicked my french toast from yesterday’s butt. haha
I’m so happy that our georgia peaches are finally starting to be in season. I am so in love with peaches and I bet they are amazing with french toast!! :)

omg there is NOTHING better than liquor/syrup (sweet) combos…OMG DROOL.
I ADORE rum w/ sugar, melted, sweet..I would LOVE to just drink that syrup mixture you have.. omg.
Off to lift. Just got back from farmers market. Bought a local pineapple for 2.99 ! and tons of other goodies, thought of you the whole time :)
That looks phenomenal!! My husband probably wouldn’t go for the fruit part, but the rest of it, he’d love. And I would too, of course!! :D
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.
If I could wake up to this, I would go to bed early. This looks fantastic!
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!
When can we all come over for breakfast??
Um, hello deliciousness!
Sounds like a great way to start the weekend.
Hmmmmm – Wish I could have some of this right NOW!!!
I think this recipe is perfect. One of the few that I would not change a single thing. Great job. And love hearing anything about Mother Lovett!
Dear lord. It just keeps coming with you. Amazing.
goodness gracious. this looks amazing!
Oh my goodness. I’m in love. Alcohol + peaches + french toast? HEAVEN.
