sunday brunch

french toast with caramelized nectarines

This is a really yummy breakfast plus it's super easy and adaptable. You could use any fruit you have around. And just so you know, pretty much all of the stone fruits are on sale right now. Peaches would be really delicious!

I took two nectarines, quartered them, and placed them in a small frying pan with some margarine (be generous, about 1/4 cup) and about 3 teaspoons of brown sugar. It takes some time but eventually, you'll be left with a delicious nectarine flavoured caramel sauce.

The french toast was the easy part. While the nectarines are cooking, take four slices of bread and soak them in a mixture of egg (I did one egg per slice, but I could have gotten away with three), milk, and cinnamon. Once both sides of the bread have been coated in the egg mixture, move the slices to a griddle and cook them until both sides are golden brown.

Top the french toast with the nectarines and enjoy!
