Chili cheese French toast

26 Jun


Good fun from Mr. Breakfast.

While I’m on a sandwich kick, I figured, why not? Yeah, so I’m not a sandwich person.

Except when I am.

Sure, I have zero nostalgia for this sandwich. If last week’s eats were the food equivalent of The Rocky Horror Picture Show, this week’s sandwich is a far more artistic film. Let’s say The Artist. A creative French-toasted sandwich for a creative French film. And yet both of them actually made in Los Angeles.


Next I’m gonna match a sandwich to my favorite movie of all time: Clue.

To be eaten eaten in the ballroom.

By candlelight from a candle in a very sinister candlestick.

Preferably served by Tim Curry.

Huh, he is now tied, cinematically, to both sandwiches.

The plot thickens.

Enough! Go make this sandwich. Make it pretty. Make me proud.

Chili Cheese French toast adapted from this recipe

3 Tbsp. egg
1/4 c. Half and half
Dash salt
2 pieces of bread
1 oz. shredded cheese (I had reduced fat Swiss)
2 Tbsp. canned diced green chiles
2 Tbsp. diced cilantro
Heat the oven to 400. Line a pan with nonstick foil then spray, just in case. I believe in “just in case”. Which explains my overly full purse. Really, it’s a wonder I was not a scout. egg, half and half, and salt. Dip one piece of bread in the mixture and put on foil. Spread on cheese, then chiles, then cilantro. Dip the other slice and place on top. Cook until golden brown, ten minutes-ish. Then flip and cook some more. Nice. Very much so.

    Hmmm. This recipe is making me miss my sandwich maker (yes I have a sandwich maker). I’ve used it quite a few times when I lived away from home. Your recipe is a step way up from my cheese sandwiches though 😛 You can’t go wrong with half n half 😛

      Niceeeeeee! A sandwich maker is a step up from my frying pan! Although French toasting a sandwich may sound a bit more gourmet I’d argue that few things beat a good cheese sandwich;)

    Mr. Breakfast, huh? I’d sleep with him if I were sure I could wake up with him. GREG

      Me too. But then I’d probably crawl into bed with Fannie Farmer if she was making me a bedtime snack:)

    Sandwiches are so comforting! Especially cheesy ones (I just had a grilled cheese with side of tomato bisque yesterday!).

      Ah, a classic! One can never go too wrong where there is bread and there is cheese.
