French toast sticks, anyone?

Priorities: Getting some restaurant brioche loaves from Balthazar, and then doing a minimal french toast setup with 2 dipping sauces, no maple syrup… If you’ve been around the block with brioche, you’ll know that Balthazar’s really the only one worth eating.

Prepare cream for both the chocolate and mascarpone… Dipping sauce?

I added some heat to the chocolate, cayenne pepper. To the mascarpone, apple pie spice..and maple syrup flakes. You are free to do whatever you want with this though!

Chocolate and Salt. Need I say more? I think not.

Instead of dunking the sticks into a batch of eggs and milk, just lightly brush it. Don’t go too heavy. You want these to be light and airy instead of custard-y. Doesn’t the photo below feel very American Psycho? Confused by that statement? As if this whole blog doesn’t feel that way? Yes, I know… But the photo below, extra so.
