The best meal of the day.

Breakfast is by far my favorite meal.

Pancakes on Sunday morning!

Blueberry & strawberry whole wheat pancakes topped with SunButter  + coconut oil + maple syrup
You'd think I was breakfast-ed out after this gigantic breakfast. You are mistaken. Very mistaken.

Awhile ago, I was watching Iron Chef and saw something very interesting. I made a mental note to attempt to make the dish sometime.

It happened today, with a Tulika-fied twist.

French Toast Sandwich

  • 2 slices whole grain bread
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 large leaves kale
  • 1/2 bell pepper
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1/8 cup shredded cheese
  • salt to taste

In a bowl, whisk together the egg and milk. Dip a slice of bread in the mixture and cover thoroughly. 

Heat a skillet to medium-high on the stove, drizzle 1/2 teaspoon olive oil, and drop the slice of bread on it.

While the bread cooks, cook the kale and bell pepper in olive oil and add a pinch of salt.

After thoroughly cooking the first slice of bread on both sides, pour the kale mixture onto the bread and top with cheese. 

Dip the other slice of bread in the egg/milk mixture and cook on the skillet. When ready, top the sandwich with it. To melt the cheese completely, put the sandwich back on the skillet for a minute or two.

This is a beast of a sandwich. (I recommend dipping it into a sauce of your choice! Ketchup, hot sauce, etc).

French toast + cheese is an underrated combination. That is, if you like cheese.

I do.
