A nice twist to the traditional breakfast dish, and makes a nice addition to any brunch. Serve with fresh fruit, fruit preserves, or warm maple syrup.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup slivered almonds
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 12 thick slices French bread
  • 3 tablespoons canola oil
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • confectioners' sugar for dusting

Directions

  1. Place almonds in a small saucepan over low heat. Tossing frequently, toast until lightly browned, 5 to 10 minutes. Remove from heat, and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, flour, salt, baking powder, almond extract and vanilla extract. Dip bread slices in the mixture until saturated. Place slices in a shallow pan. Refrigerate slices approximately 1 hour.
  3. Heat canola oil and butter in a large skillet over medium heat. One at a time, press one side of soaked bread slices in the almonds to coat. Fry bread slices on both sides until golden brown. Dust with confectioner's sugar before serving,
