When a woman spends the night at a man’s place for the first time, he will awaken the next morning either suddenly shocked or pleasantly surprised.
When the latter happens, a man’s got to be prepared. A quick trip to the diner or a bagel run can spoil the mood by cutting time spent in bed. The key to making the morning linger...is breakfast.
French Toast Stuffed with Pomegranate Maple Syrup
1/4 cup maple syrup
2 tablespoons fresh pomegranate seeds
4 thick slices of white bread
1 large egg
1/4 cup milk
Splash of pure vanilla extract
Pinch of cinnamon
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
For maple syrup and pomegranate topping, add two tablespoons of fresh pomegranate seeds into the maple syrup, mix and place to the side.
In a small bowl, whisk the eggs with the milk, vanilla and cinnamon. Dip both sides of each slice of bread into the egg mixture until well coated.
In a large skillet, melt ˝ tablespoon of the butter. Add 2 of the bread slices and cook until golden, about 2 minutes per side. Repeat with the remaining butter and bread slices.
Transfer the French toast slices to plates. Top with maple syrup and pomegranate topping and serve.
