We’re happy to share with you our beloved beer French toast recipe, as seen on the San Diego CW6 TV’s morning show, today on Friday the 13th… don’t worry, we swear this recipe is a lucky one 😉
This French toast recipe is unlike anything you’ve ever tried, but if you’re as much of a breakfast lover as us aliens, you’ll die (again, sorry Friday 13th reference) for this killer (again…) recipe that replaces the milk and swaps in beer instead!! We swear, it sounds strange, but just try it and you’ll see why we only make this recipe for our most favorite humans, like the ones over CW6 TV. These guys are the best!
This melt-in-your-mouth-ooey-gooey-please-can-I-have-some-more French toast is laced with a chocolatey coffee nut porter from Mammoth Brewing Company called Double Nut Brown. Their award-winning beer is a perfect match for our French toast recipe. It adds tons of sweet, complex and coffee flavors that make it a perfect breakfast beer. Have a sip while making your breakfast and definitely serve it up for brunch. This beer is available year-round in 22oz. bottles and can be found at your local Baron’s Market or supermarket. If you can’t find it at your local grocery store, your favorite porter, stout, or brown ale will work well too.
