East Meets The West French Toast
created by: Anonymous


  1. 1
    A) FRENCH TOAST: Preheat oven to 250°F. Pour ice cream into a large baking dish. Add bread, turn to coat, then let sit 3 minutes. Flip bread and continue to soak until saturated but not soggy, about 3 minutes more.
  2. 2
    Heat 2 Tbsp. butter in a large skillet over medium. Using tongs, carefully lift 2 bread slices from custard, letting excess drip back into dish. Transfer to skillet in a single layer and cook until golden brown and the center of toast springs back when pressed, about 4 minutes per side. Transfer to a wire rack set inside a rimmed baking sheet; keep warm in oven until ready to serve. Repeat with 2 Tbsp. butter and remaining bread. Top toasts with remaining 1 Tbsp. butter and serve.

    B) ICE CREAM: 1. Put the pistachios in the freezer.

    2. Heat the remaining ingredients over low heat until the sugar is dissolved and it begins to steam. Briskly whisk for one minute.

    3. Chill all ingredients in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.

    4. Use an ice cream maker, or if not available, simply place in the freezer and stir every fifteen minutes until frozen.

    5. When the ice cream is almost done, drop in the and/or pistachios, if using. Serve in frozen bowls and garnish with candied rose petals.

    Alternatively, freeze 3/4's of the liquid portion, then place in a vitamix or high end blender with the remaining 1/4. Mix in the solid ingredients.

    D) Putting it All Together: Put the french toast on a plate. Drizzle maple syrup on top. Sprinkle white chocolate pieces on top. Put 3 scoops of ice cream on top, covering the french toast. Drizzle a lot of melted white chocolate on top. Finally, finish by topping the edges and the top of the dish with whipped cream.
