Yum


This post is sponsored in conjunction with #BrunchWeek. I received product samples from sponsor companies to aid in the creation of the #Brunchweek recipes. All opinions are mine alone.

Welcome to #BrunchWeek 2018 hosted by Love and Confections and A Kitchen Hoor's Adventures! This year is even bigger and better than ever! Thirty eight bloggers from around the country are showcasing their best brunch dishes. We have so many delicious recipes for you to enjoy throughout the week (over 150!!) including cocktails, appetizers, pastries, tarts, main courses, and plenty of desserts! Our BrunchWeek Sponsors are helping us give away some great prizes. Thank you so much, Sponsors, for your generosity. We have an incredible giveaway -- Check out my first post of the week for details!


As soon as I knew we were getting Michigan Asparagus and Cento roasted red peppers, I knew I had to make a play on one of my favorite dinners growing up--asparagus on toast. I decided to kick it up a notch and make it a savory French toast. Especially since Eggland's Best was also a sponsor!

Savory French Toast

  • 4 slices brioche bread (or other thickly sliced bread of choice)
  • 2 eggs, whisked
  • 1 tsp fresh grated garlic
  • 1 tsp chives
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • salt and pepper

Toppings:

  • Hollandaise Sauce (I use this recipe but honestly the mix is fine!)
  • Grilled Asparagus
  • Cento Roasted Red Peppers

-In a wide bowl, mix together the eggs, garlic, chives, onion powder, and salt and pepper. Dip the brioche slices in the mix and let the egg absorb into the bread.

-Heat a skillet over medium heat and butter generously. Cook the bread in the skillet until it's browned on each side.

(Since you're cooking two savory items at the same time, I actually cooked the asparagus alongside the French toast.)

-Top with veggies and hollindais and serve!
