I tried my hand at making a loaf of red wine bread and it turned out fantastic. After baking it up I started thinking about all of the other lovely recipes I could make with the bread. I immediately thought of french toast. I mean, really, how can you go wrong with french toast, and adding red wine and chocolate takes it up to a whole new level. Honestly, this Red Wine and Chocolate French Toast should be illegal for breakfast.
Use the red wine bread recipe that I shared here (it’s really quick and easy, I promise). This is the perfect recipe for a special breakfast at home or brunch with the girlfriends. Plus, it includes wine and chocolate and, well, you can never really can’t go wrong with that combination.
Slice the bread in nice thick slices. Dip into an egg wash then place in hot skillet and toast on each side.
When you plate up the french toast sprinkle with shaved or finely chopped Ghiraradeli dark chocolate, top with a couple berries and add syrup. Ta da….Red Wine and Chocolate French Toast is served!
Prepare for a delicious start to your morning.
