Every once in awhile you feel like going the extra mile and don’t know where to start. Noooo! Martinis for breakfast is a real bad choice. ‘Cuz then you would miss this wonderful recipe. Besides, this is from my cookbook “The B & B Cookbook” from Amazon.
This serves 2 and you will need:
- 3 large eggs
- 1/2 cup whole milk
- 2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
- 3/4 tsp. cardamom, divided
- 2 thick slices of bread
- 4 tbsp. butter, divided
- 1/2 cup pomegranate juice
- 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
- 1 ripe, but still firm, red skinned pear, cut into thin slices
Whisk together eggs, milk, vanilla and 1/2 of the cardamom and pour into a 9″ square glass baking dish. Add bread and let stand about 10 minutes, turning over with a spatula until the mixture has been absorbed.
Melt 1 tbsp. butter in a fry pan over medium heat. Add the pear slices. Saute for 3 minutes until soft and transfer to a plate.
Add 2 tbsp. butter to fry pan; add juice, brown sugar and cardamom simmering until it thickens and syrupy (about 5 mins). Remove from heat. Melt remaining butter on griddle, add bread slices and cook until golden (about 3 minutes each side) cut in half and divide onto plates. Top with pears, spoon sauce over top. Serve (with a big smile, of course) immediately.
In a word or two….yummy-yummy.
