Brioche French Toast with "Hot" Maple Syrup

Brioche French Toast with Tabasco Maple Syrup recipe by Barefeet In The Kitchen
Fluffy french toast is topped with a soft egg and then drizzled with maple syrup that has been transformed with a splash of Tabasco sauce. Are you cringing at the thought of shaking Tabasco into your syrup? I dare you to try it. You might thank me later. Just a splash of that smoky heat woke up this breakfast plate. My oldest son and I are still talking about this awesome breakfast and we've made it twice more in the past week!

I'm excited to share this recipe as part of the Tabasco 10 Ingredient Challenge. For a peek at the list of ingredients and the rules, check them out here!

COOK'S NOTE: The runny eggs over top of the french toast are optional, but I highly recommend trying it. The soft yolk combines with the syrup to create the ultimate spicy, savory, sweet sauce for the french toast.

Brioche French Toast with "Hot" Maple Syrup
Yield: 4 - 6 servings
(printable recipe)

1 loaf brioche, sliced into pieces approximately 3/4" - 1" thick
8 eggs, for egg wash
4 - 6 eggs, fried over easy
1 cup maple syrup
1 - 3 teaspoons original Tabasco sauce, adjust to taste

Preheat a large non-stick skillet or a griddle to medium / medium-high heat. Whisk together the eggs for the egg wash. Soak the slices of bread in the egg mixture for at least one minute before placing them in the hot skillet or griddle. Cook 3-4 minutes per side.

Cook your eggs gently over medium low heat in a non stick skillet. While the eggs are cooking, stir together the maple syrup and Tabasco sauce, adding the tabasco slowly, according to how spicy you like it. When the eggs are barely set and still runny, place an egg on top of the plated french toast. Drizzle with syrup and serve immediately. Enjoy!

  6. Oh my goodness, I'm all over this one Mary! When should I be over for breakfast tomorrow? :)

  7. I usually mix a little chili powder in the milk-and-eggs mix I use for soaking bread for French toast to wake it up a bit, but your idea of mixing Tabasco with the maple syrup is much, much better. Thanks for this.

  8. I've never wanted French Toast so badly in all my life! The runny egg...omg, yes.

  9. This is the only way I'll have maple syrup from now on!!!
