Since it almost April (the month where I promise myself to eat healthier, do yoga more often, and stop that dessert-and-coffee rinse-and-repeat cycle); I start eating oatmeal again to add up my dietary fiber. Fact is, sometime oatmeal can be really boring for me.
So today, I decide to make a quick brunch for Dito and (naturally) add oatmeal on the usual french toast just to see how it will turn out. It's easier (only take 5 minutes to make) and a bit more yummy than what I expected. To give it a twist, I add a dash of fresh basil and pepper in the egg batter. The oatmeal give a crunchy effect and I loove the yin-and-yang between soft fluffy toast and crunchy toasted oatmeal.
Serve hot with a cup of smoky milktea on the side for a brunch treat for the loved one!
Here's the recipe for 3 plates of Oatmeal Basil French Toast:
(Beat an egg with a bit of milk, creamer, and thinly sliced fresh basil. In another bowl, mix 5 tablespoons of oatmeal and 1 teaspoon of pepper. Cut 4 slices of bread, dip it in the egg batter, cover it with oatmeal evenly. Toast it with a bit of olive oil until golden brown. Serve hot.)
