Father’s Day Crunchy French Toast is a masculine version of a classic breakfast dish!
I first tasted a dish similar to my Father’s Day Crunchy French Toast in Boston, MA in a corner cafe somewhere near Harvard about 14 years ago… it was AMAZING! So, I figured out how to make it at home and have been loving it ever since!! I was in Boston in the chilly month of February, we happened to arrive smack dab in the middle of worst snow storm I’ve ever seen! What took me there you ask?? Well, we were seriously contemplating accepting a job offer there and they flew us out to see the sights of the city! We ate dinner at Pier 4, a swanky little restaurant over looking the ocean that has tonz of pic’s of the stars that have eaten there, AND that restaurant was the beginning of my Rice Pudding addiction 🙂
We did lots of other fun things too, once the storm let up… we went and saw the USS Constitution, Harvard, and we even drove out to Salem to see all the Witch Trials stuff! The trip was a lot of fun but, unfortunately our path didn’t end up moving us there. We were Nebraska bound instead BUT long story, short. That’s how I came upon this fabulous recipe!!
Father’s Day Crunchy French Toast… is sure to be a tummy pleasing surprise for the Husband, Daddy, Man in your life!! I hope that this recipe is a delicious way to let the guy in your life know how much you love him!! Happy Father’s Day to all the wonderful father’s out there 🙂
