A toast to the tomato: tomato tasting, part 3

ingredients for " Cinnamon French Toast" topped with tomato salad

This is the recipe I created after last year’s tomato tasting . I used cinnamon bread because the taste of cinnamon and basil are reminiscent of each other.

Cinnamon French Toast topped with Tomato Salad

Make a tomato salad following “The Remains of the Day” blog post

For each serving cut 2 pieces of  slightly dry cinnamon bread 3/4 of an inch thick

Spread 2 tablespoons of soft fresh goat cheese on one piece of bread and then top with second piece to make a sandwich

For each sandwich, lightly beat 2 eggs with 1/4 cup milk , you probably won’t need the whole amount for each sandwich

Soak the sandwich in the egg and milk mixture ,turning occasionally until you think the bread has absorbed as much batter as it can

Preheat oven to 350 degrees f.

Heat olive oil in a nonstick pan

Turn down the heat under the oil and slip the sandwich into the pan. Gently cook, you don’t want to burn it before it is cooked through and the cheese is warm. Finish the cooking it by baking it in an ovenproof dish until done.

Place on a serving dish and sprinkle with a half a teaspoon of sugar

Top with a generous portion of tomato salad and serve while still hot
