Our blueberry panini french Toast

Try our blueberry panini for breakfast.  It is the perfect decant breakfast french toast that combines the sweet blueberries bursting with flavor and a tangy lemon curd spread.  The crunchy sourdough bread adds texture to this popular breakfast treat that will have your family or guests wondering how you put these flavor combinations together.  This is a great dish for this time of year as blueberries are fresh, but you can also use frozen blueberries if you can’t find fresh ones in grocery store.

French Toast

  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 4 slices Sourdough Bread, about 1/2-inch thick
  • lemon curd
  • fresh blueberries

Place eggs in shallow dish, lightly whisk.  Add cream and ground ginger, whisk to combine.

Spread lemon curd on 4 slices of 1/2-inch thick sourdough bread.  Top one slice with blueberries, then add a second bread slice.  Press together; dip each side in egg mixture, place in warmed panini maker and cook as directed, or until golden brown.  Top with confectioner’s sugar (optional).  Serve with candied lemons or a lemon twist as garnish and maple syrup.

Serves 2.

Candied Lemons

  •  1/2 pound lemons
  • 1 pound sugar
  • 1/2 quart water

In a large shallow pan, about 4 inches deep, dissolve sugar into the water.  Bring the mixture to a boil.  Arrange the fruit on a round rack, tie a piece of string onto the rack so you can submerge in the liquid without getting your hands sticky.  Lower the rack into the liquid.  Press a round of parchment paper on top of the fruit so it is completely immersed in the syrup.  Bring the syrup back up to a simmer.  Simmer for 10-15 minutes.  remove from heat and let the fruit cool.  Leave the fruit in the syrup, covered for 24 hours at room temperature.  Lift the rack out of the liquid and allow to drain for 30-60 minutes.  Transfer the lemon pieces to paper towels and let dry for 3-5 hours.
