DID YOU KNOW

The iconic French Toast was created during the medieval era by cooks who discovered a delicious way to use day-old bread. Known as ‘pain perdu’ or ‘lost bread’ in France, French Toast is commonly made by soaking sliced bread in an egg-and-milk mixture before it’s pan-fried. At Sorrentina, we’ve used sourdough instead of regular bread, to create a unique savoury French Toast recipe. Take it from us — it’s the tastiest breakfast fix in town!

  1. Separate the wet ingredients and the dry ingredients
  2. Stir the milk and eggs together
  3. Add the dry ingredients to the batter and let it rest
  4. Prepare this batter a night prior, allowing it to rest in the fridge overnight

FINAL TOUCHES

  1. Slice the sourdough vertically
NOTE: Slice it such that it’s convenient enough for you to flip in the pan
  1. Soak the slices of bread in the pre-made batter for 2-3 minutes, so that it’s moist enough
  2. In a heated pan, add some butter, but do not let it brown
  3. Add the soaked bread to the pan and allow it to sear
  4. Flip the bread after a minute and let it caramelize
  5. Once the bread is sealed from all sides, place it on a plate
  6. Drizzle Sorrentina’s Aglio E Olio sauce on top of the slices
  7. Garnish with olives and sundried-tomatoes
TIP: Pair it with a crisp, leafy salad
