I got bored of the usual breakfast I normally have. So this morning, I figured with the ingredients already in the kitchen and made a different breakfast. I was craving for peanut butter french toast, that somehow gets served in Hong Kong Cafes and the various Hong Kong themed cafes in Malaysia. Then decided to jazz it up with caramelised pears. So here is the recipe:
2 slices of brioche loaf or normal white bread
1 beaten egg
1 heaping tbsp peanut butter
1 pear - quartered and seeds removed
salt and pepper for seasoning
1 tbsp maple syrup
- Firstly beat the egg in a pasta bowl to make it easier for the bread to soak in the beaten egg.
- Toast your bread. Once toasted, lay it out on a serving plate to spread the butter and peanut butter. Before assembling it together.
- Next heat up the frying pan with some butter and then place in the quartered pears to begin caramelisation. Turn the pears to ensure all sides are browned.
- Place the pears along the sides of the pan to make some space for the french toast.
- Next take the sandwich and place in into the beaten egg and make sure the sandwich is fully coated on both sides. Then place the coated sandwich onto the frying pan to fry it up!
- Turn the sandwich accordingly as well as the pears. Toss in some salt and pepper on the pears to season it.
- Ladle it all out and decorate on the plate any which way you want it. Then dribble the maple syrup on top and serve.
The pears can also be substituted with bananas or apples. Just depends on what you have in the kitchen.
I had a delicious breakfast and this is definitely did not take longer than 15 minutes to prepare.
Have a go at it,
