Sometimes a decadent breakfast is required in order to start the day out right. Although I would not recommend doing this everyday, I completely think that indulging for breakfast every now and then is totally acceptable.
This is exactly how I felt this past weekend – I just wanted French Toast and did not want to care about the dreaded caloric content. My solution? Decadent breakfast + smaller-than-normal portion size = one satisfied lady with a stomach that was not too full!
Step 1: Cut Challah Bread into Slices and
Cut “Pouch”; Cut Banana Slices
Step 2: Carmelize Bananas and Stuff into Bread
Step 3: Whisk the Egg Mixture Together
Step 4: Place Stuffed Bread in Egg Mixture with Almonds
Step 5: Combine Streusel Topping; Place on Top and Bake
Although decadent, I am happy to have made this. One recommendation is to be careful with the soak time of the challah bread and how much liquid it absorbs. Other than that, a perfect start to a Saturday or Sunday!
I love crepes – especially because of the versatility to make them either savory or sweet. I have made crepes only one time in my life; however, my crepes did not turn out in as of a tasty concoction as I wanted them to. As a result, I figured I would leave any type of crepe making to the experts.
Through Yelp, I was able to find Saley, a crepe restaurant in the Capitol Hill neighborhood of Seattle and happened to visit it this past Sunday with a few girlfriends. Although the space inside was tiny, the vibe, atmosphere and most importantly, the crepes, more than completed the experience. The server suggested to order the #6 – “The Queen”. As my mind contemplated between savory and sweet, I finally decided to follow the servers suggestion of “The Queen” crepe which was filled with chicken, tomatoes, spinach, cheese and Saley’s secret sauce.
In addition to this delicious crepe, I figured I would complete the meal with a cup of joe for a daily boost of caffeine. Well, the only thing that would have made it truly complete is if we could have been transported to Paris…
