French Toast with Pears and Pomegranate Sauce

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.
