French Toast with Feta Cheese and Spiced Honey Syrup
Rate this post
Behold, The Magic of Caramelized CheeseAfter posting a tease picture for this Feta Cheese French Toast on social media, I received a fair number of responses questioning this particular pairing, as well as my general sanity. Well, if making French toast with feta cheese is crazy, I don’t want to be sane, since this was one of the most delicious things I’ve had for breakfast in a very long time.I believe what’s giving the skeptics pause is assuming the feta is going to taste like it does in its raw form, which is generally quite briny, with that signature hint of funkiness, but that’s not what we’re going to taste in the final product. When you crisp and caramelize chunks of feta in a hot pan, especially when it’s attached to a custard soaked slice of bread, it turns into a completely different substance. A sweeter, milder, absolutely delicious substance.So, if you’re worried about this feta tasting like the feta you had in that Greek salad, then please relax. Not only does the browning of the cheese convert it into something new and wonderful, but it also creates something that pairs perfectly with honey. Truly, a match made in alternative French toast heaven. Having said that, this also would work with maple syrup, or any number of fruit sauces. No matter how you serve yours, I really do hope you give this a try soon. Enjoy!
