Savory French Toast ... My first post for SRS


Those of you who've followed my blog for a while are familiar with the fact that I regularly participate in the SRC or what we call the Secret Recipe Club. I'm sure you're wondering if you're seeing a typo in SRS. No you're not.

A couple of weeks ago when I was jumping around from one blog to another, taking a look around, I came across SRS - Surprise Recipe Swap hosted by Jutta of Hungry Little Girl. I was so excited when I was accepted to participate in this group. You are assigned a blog and you pick up a recipe from there to try out and everyone posts on the 20th of the month. Oh! and another thing, you're not allowed to inform the author of the blog you're assigned that you have them for them month. Its a surprise. I like linkies like this. 

For my first SRS reveal, I was assigned Sheena's blog - Hot Eats and Cool Reads. Sheena reads and posts reviews on loads of books and you'll find some pretty interesting recipes there too. Like this Savory French Toast. This was a quick little number to put together with hardly any fussing around. Chop up a few things, place them in a baking dish, pop them in the oven to bake and in a little while, you'll be sitting down to a lovely, warm and hearty breakfast. Its a winner in my book. We heated up some leftovers in a pan the next morning and it tasted fantastic. So you can make this in advance too. I made half of the original recipe and those are the quantities I've listed below.



Savory French Toast Breakfast Bake

1 tsp. butter
3 slices of bread, torn  into cubes
3 slices of bacon, chopped
1 medium white onion, chopped
1 green pepper/capsicum, chopped
1/3 cup grated cheese
3 eggs
3/4 cup milk
Salt, to taste
Freshly crushed black pepper, to taste

Preheat the oven to 170ÂșC.

Grease a glass baking dish with the butter and layer the pieces of bread at the bottom.

Sprinkle the chopped onion, capsicum, bacon and cheese over the bread to distribute well.

Whisk the eggs, milk, salt and pepper and pour this mix into the baking dish.

Bake for about 30 minutes or till the egg has set.

Enjoy it warm!
