Almond Ciabatta French Toast

almond french toast RecipeBen Fink

Ingredients

  • 1 large egg
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 1/4 cups 1% low-fat milk
  • 1/4 cup whole milk
  • 8 (1-inch) slices round ciabatta
  • Cooking spray
  • 1 cup sliced almonds

Preparation

1. Heat a griddle or skillet over medium-low heat.

2. Whisk together first 6 ingredients (through almond extract) in a medium bowl. Gradually whisk in both types of milk. Pour mixture into a shallow baking dish. Working in batches, if necessary, place bread in dish and let soak 3 minutes on each side.

3. Coat a griddle or skillet with cooking spray. For each slice of the bread, place 2 tablespoons almonds in a single (but fairly densely packed) layer on the hot griddle, forming an area the size and shape of a bread slice. Press 1 side of the bread into the almonds, and cook 4 minutes or until golden brown. (You will probably need to repeat this process in 2 batches.) Flip the bread over, and cook 3–4 minutes or until speckled golden brown. Serve immediately.
