I can't take credit for this idea, though I've had it, I didn't execute it. Jordan made this one happen. Last week, he went out and bought a bucket of doughnuts from Voodoo (which is a great deal if you ever want a huge bucket of doughnuts!! Yum), and it had a Giant Tex-Ass Challenge doughnut (the size of 6 of their regular doughnuts) in the bottom. Usually, these aren't too great if you get them a few days old, but it's perfect for turning into french toast. Jordan whipped up the egg mixture and fried it up and I'm just bringing it to you. Try it! Use any doughnut you want and top it how you like- make this your own, but try out this great idea!
|Mix up your egg mixture: egg, milk, vanilla, cinnamon- simple simple.|
|Poke holes in the doughnut, then press around in the egg mixture.|
|Then start frying your doughnut!|
|Flip and fry the other side.|
Doughnut French Toast
-1 Giant Doughnut (or several smaller ones) that has gone a little stale- cut in half if the thickness is over 1/2 inch
-1/3 cup approximately milk
-splash of vanilla
-sprinkle of cinnamon
Whisk together egg, milk, vanilla, and cinnamon, adjusting to your liking.
Poke holes in the doughnut(s) with a fork, so that the egg mixture can seep in.
Soak the doughnut(s) in the egg mixture, then fry up to your liking in a pan in a bit of butter or a spray of oil.
Eat with whatever topping you like, though I find this does not need a lot in the sweetness department, starting out as a doughnut and all. Enjoy!
|Take your doughnut out of the frying pan when it gets crisp on both sides.|
|This is delicious with a drizzle of maple syrup, but top it however you want!|
