Take your taste buds on a wild journey with this combination of classics: PB&J, French Toast, and the adult twist…Whiskey. This delicious breakfast recipe is sure to spruce up your morning routine and guaranteed to add a little pep-in-your-step—if you know what we mean… French Toast was always a favorite in our house growing up and it still is today. Crack eggs, scramble, dunk bread, pan fry, repeat & eat—It’s almost therapeutic. This is not your average French Toast but we’re sure you’ll be happy with the adjustments. For an equally tasty, kid-friendly version of this recipe just omit the whiskey and check our adjusted recipe. This is definitely a breakfast you’ll want to get out of bed for! Made with organic peanut butter and our 4 Fruit Premium Fruit Spread, your morning is about to get a whole lot better. Cheers!

Ingredients

  • 2 cups milk or dairy alternative (2 ¼ cups if omitting whiskey)

  • 4 egg yolks

  • 2 whole eggs

  • ¼ cup whiskey

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  • 1 tsp cinnamon

  • 8-12 slices bread

  • Crofter’s Organic® fruit spread of your choice (we used Four Fruit Premium Spread)

  • Organic peanut butter or other nut butter

  • Powdered sugar

  • Syrup (maple recommended)

  • Butter for cooking

Directions

  1. In a bowl, whisk together milk (or milk alternative), egg yolks, whole eggs, whiskey, vanilla extract, and cinnamon.
  2. Prepare the bread slices as you would for a standard PB&J, by spreading the Crofter’s Organic® fruit spread and nut butter on the bread and assembling as sandwiches.
  3. Pour the batter into a shallow baking dish and place the assembled PB&J sandwiches into the batter. Allow the sandwiches to soak until well absorbed, turning the sandwiches over at least once.
  4. If cooking for a larger group, prepare your oven as a warmer by preheating oven to 200°F (or follow alternative baking instructions).
  5. Heat a griddle or non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add butter to coat skillet.
  6. Cook the French toast in batches, about 5 minutes per side until golden brown and cooked through.
  7. Once cooked, transfer to oven warmer or serve dusted with powdered sugar and syrup, if desired.
Alternative baking instructions:
  1. Prepare sandwiches by following steps 1-3 above.
  2. Preheat oven to 450°F.
  3. Brush a baking sheet with butter. Place soaked sandwiches on baking sheet and brush tops with butter.
  4. Bake in center of oven for approximately 6 minutes.
  5. ake out of oven, and flip each sandwich. Return to oven to bake until golden, 5 or 6 more minutes.
