No they don't. French toast is good. Grilled cheese is good (sourdough bread and a sharp cheddar for me). Mix them together and the flavors and spices will fight.

That sounds about a good a combo as the chocolate covered pickles I saw a few weeks back.

I think it sounds fine. There's no law saying you need cinnamon sugar on French toast. (Although that salty sweet combo might be great) the egg batter will still toast nicely and the center will have a cheese custard thing going on.

Once again, bacon may be the Great Uniter.

TIL people put cinnamon sugar on French toast. I've always just done syrup, maybe some cut fruit (and syrup).

The sandwich seems worth trying. Would definitely need some extra napkins though, I've never eaten French toast with my fingers but I'm assuming it'd leave more grease on my fingers than a "normal" grilled cheese would.

A place on campus in undergrad used to do a country griddle breakfast sandwich, which was your choice of breakfast meat, egg and cheese, on French toast.

I typically mix a healthy amount of (plain not sugared) cinnamon into the egg batter before dipping the bread, but I guess a little sugar might caramelize nicely whilst cooking, hmm...

and yeah, even fronch toast "stix" (whether at a burger restaurant, or from the freezer at home) at kind of a wonderful horrific mess to be eaten out of hand and enjoyed by all, young & olds alike.

I'm intrigued by the cinnamon in the batter. I'd be half tempted to top is off with almond butter and honey.
 
2021-05-09 11:21:49 AM  
No. This is too far.
 
2021-05-09 11:59:20 AM  
Sounds ok, but how about changing from the "gee, you can't believe this is not real cheese" to a good ricotta cheese instead.
 
2021-05-09 12:01:01 PM  
No, that sounds bad.

It's not a sweet French Toast batter so the only thing this recipe is really adding is egg. So the flavors actually all go together quite well. However it'll probably be very rich, so a bit if overkill for my taste. I'll stick with the butter (mayo isn't half bad either).

No one actually read the article - it's just egg battered bread, not actually French toast as we know it, with sweetness and cinnamon. That would indeed be bad. This however is probably just fine.

The Safeway conglomerate local chain (Albertsons) here has a store brand garlic spread. Been making the spud these for lunch - spread on the bread, a slice of provolone and a slice of mozzarella inside. Cook as you normally would. A+ would get obese again.

Isn't that just a monte cristo without the ham?

Seriously, if you're going to go through that much work, just make a proper monte cristo and enjoy a deep-fried, French-toast-battered ham & cheese sandwich already.

Remember, if you cook your bacon extra crispy you can crumble it up into tiny bits and make a nice layer between each slice of cheese

I've put cinnamon and sugar into the egg since I was a child. It's how my Nan made it. It is excellent but you really have to beat it well.

I've shared no opinion, so I don't have to.

I don't, however, categorically reject the idea.  It's not much different from pineapple on pizza (which works for me) in spirit.

I love both, but i don't think I want sweet/sugary intruding on the grilled cheese.

oh dear lord!

I was rather lucky, my MIL actually cooked us her own mothers day dinner - caesar salad in farking chilled crystal bowls, roasted fresh sweetcorn, smashed potatoes, eggplant* parm, homemade rolls. and there was fresh strawberry shortcake for afters, have mercy!

*this woman... I am spoiled forever on eggplant, hers is better than any restaurant I have in my entire misspent life ever tried. and when I ask her? a smile, a shrug, "oh... it's just eggplant! you know!" WICKED VICIOUS LIES. no, I do not know. (s'ok, I know all the standart tricks and tips. but rose pointed me at a Japanese braising technique, agebitashi, I shall definitely have to try soon...)
