Chef's Note

This recipe was kindly provided to us by the owners of the Motel-Restaurant de la Plage in Berthier-sur-Mer.

The quantity of eggs is up to you, but there's no need to up the cholesterol level! Using 2 eggs to 1 cup milk, the recipe is fluffier and less rich.

- Baguette bread
- 4 eggs
- 500 ml (2 cups) milk
- 4 tbsp. sugar
- A pinch of nutmeg
- Butter
- Pastry cream
- Berries: blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, strawberries
- Fieldberry yogurt or strawberry coulis
  1. In a bowl, whisk together the eggs and milk; add the sugar and nutmeg. 
  2. Cut the baguette into slices about 2 fingers thick; cut each slice three-quarters of the way through horizontally like a book.
  3. Soak the bread slices in the milk mixture (1), turning to be sure both sides of the bread have thoroughly absorbed the mixture.  
  4. In a large skillet, melt the butter; brown the bread slices on both sides over medium heat to cook the mixture without burning it - if you are making a large number of slices, keep the cooked French toast warm in a low oven. 
  5. Open up the slices of French toast and fill them with pastry cream and berries. 
  6. Serve the French toast on fieldberry yogurt or strawberry coulis.
