Saint Patrick's Day Green French Toast

Updated: Mar 11

One of the traditions we associate with Saint Patrick's Day is wearing green. If you see someone not wearing green, you have full permission to pinch them. You have to admit, the tradition is a little strange and we aren't entirely sure where and when it originated, but it's always fun to participate in holiday festivities. Whether your child has a Saint Patrick's Day party at school or they just want to join in on the holiday fun, little english has timeless green pieces for baby, toddler, and big kid. This adorable boy is wearing our Button Tab John John in Preppy Green.


One Saint Patrick's Day tradition that we wanted to pass on from our little english family to your family is a festive green french toast recipe. This recipe was given to us by Emily, a member of our little english team. She makes it every year with her family. It's a fun twist on a breakfast favorite and there is just something so comforting about the fluffy, sweet treat. You can go the classic route by topping the french toast with butter and maple syrup or you can create a delicious fruit compote for some added variety. Let's get started!


Ingredients:

8 pieces of brioche bread

1/2 cup of maple syrup

2-5 drops green food coloring

1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract

1/4 cup of milk

4 eggs

4 tablespoons of butter



Directions:
  1. In a skillet, melt butter on medium heat

  2. In a small bowl whisk eggs, milk and vanilla extract

  3. Start by adding two drops of green food coloring to the egg mixture, whisk, and continue to add drops until desired color is reached

  4. Transfer the mixture to a shallow pan or container

  5. Dip bread into egg mixture so all sides are covered

  6. Fry pieces until golden brown, flip to fry the other side
