Chi Flavored French Toast with Blueberry Syrup

Chi Flavored French Toast with Blueberry Syrup


I decided to take a friends suggestion and add some Chi Spice to the French Toast Batter. It was delicious next time I will amp the flavor up by adding just a bit extra spice on the slices just prior to cooking it .

The blueberry Syrup was simple.

  • 1 cup of Blueberries
  • 1/4 cup of Maple Syrup
  • 1 Cinnamon Stick
  • 1 tablespoon Butter

Heat over high heat until the mix (blueberries, Cinnamon and syrup)comes to a boil. Let boil until the berries start to burst then turn the heat off and stir in the butter . Remove Cinnamon stick and serve warm.

On the photography part . Next time I would wait for the toast to cool down completely so the Whipcream does not "melt" and slide down the pile. I would also use a bit less syrup as it makes a heck of a mess.

You put sausages and french toast on the same plate? Touching each other? WHY? smile

Let me state it again. this is absurd for me (Italian) but when I was in the US I ate marvellous food.

It is amazing to me how diverse the food is here in the states.

You have an amazing use of salt. 
It takes out the perfect flavour in every food. 
Every bite is an explosion ot taste, perfectly balanced. You can taste every ingredient, but also the combination of them. 
You have eccentric mix of foods (sausages + fruit) but, if you can overcome the horror for these really absurd combinations, the result is almost always spectacular. :D
And I loved the coffee too!

Yummi ! Looks delicious. In german 'French toast' were called 'Arme Ritter' (Poor Knights) before the international name French toast became popular.

Russ-
Love the picture the way it is. 
If you wait til it's cold and then top it, you will have a beautiful picture, but it will have that perkins menu look.
Something about the way it melted and slid off makes it more sumptuous looking and inviting.
By all means try it both ways, but I hope you see what I mean. It gives it that "so fresh I can almost smell and taste it" look!
Just my 2 cents worth.
Now I'm hungry for french toast!

I would agree with that one looks more super clean and this way says home made come enjoy.

WOW Russell you outdid the styling and light and.....and... Just gorgeous! But I will be honest, if I ate that I would be resting for several days. You outdid yourself as far as the photograph and no doubt it tastes very good, because it definitely looks scrumptious.

It was surprisingly light but then again I used almond milk and a few eggs in the batter and the blueberries only had the bit of maple syrup in them for added sugar.

Definitely something I would not even dare eating, but the photo is great smile

:) I would say these 3 were semi healthy because I used almond milk instead of cream .

6 months, 3 weeks ago Edited
Björn Roose Replied to Russell Smith 6 months, 3 weeks ago

It's the combination of the cream, saucages and blueberries which makes me think I would get an instant heart atack if I ate it smile
