Directions French Toast In a shallow dish whisk together the ingredients for the French toast minus the bread and butter. Heat a skillet on medium heat. Dip the slices of bread into the egg mixture letting them soak for at least 30 seconds per side. Add butter to the skillet and then a few slices of soaked bread, cook for about 3 minutes per side or until golden brown. Keep warm in a 200F oven while you make the Hollandaise sauce. Hollandaise Fill a pot with a few inches of water and find a metal bowl to place over it that does not touch the water. Into the bowl add the egg yolks, whole egg and lemon juice, whisk them together and slowly drizzle in the melted butter whisking continuously. Keep the sauce moving while it cooks, switch to a rubber spatula if necessary so you don’t miss any spots. Cook the mixture until it thickens. Turn off the heat and add the remaining ingredients, fold everything together, taste and adjust for seasoning. Serve the French toast with a generous amount of sauce poured over top, garnish with an additional pinch of cayenne.
