Blood Orange French Toast
1 cup Half & Half
4-5 Tbsp Blood Orange Olive Oil divided
1/4 tsp Sea Salt (Vanilla Bean or Sel Gris)
1/2 Italian Baguette sliced into 8-10 ½” thick pieces
Berries or Fresh Fruit for garnish
In a wide, shallow dish, whisk together the half-and-half, 1 Tbsp blood orange olive oil, eggs, sugar shaker, and salt.
Heat a large skillet over medium heat with the remaining blood orange olive oil.
Dip each bread slice into the egg mixture, allowing to soak for 15 seconds per side.
In batches to avoid overcrowding the pan, place each slice of soaked bread into the hot pan, cooking until golden brown, about 2-3 minutes per side. Keep warm in the oven or tented with foil while you finish cooking the others.
Arrange on a pan, dust with powdered sugar, a sprinkle of cinnamon vanilla sugar shaker, and serve with fruit. For a super gourmet touch, try a drizzle of strawberry balsamic vinegar!
