Grilled Cheese French Toast

Grilled Cheese French Toast-4 I will openly admit that I patted myself on the back for this one. Grilled Cheese French Toast.

The term “leftover grilled cheese sandwiches” is probably an oxymoron, but the next time you make grilled cheese, I recommend making a few extra, and transforming those extras into this magical breakfast the next day. Or if you are a “breakfast for dinner” type (which means you are an awesome person), this is a good, hearty option.

Grilled Cheese French Toast

By some feat of nature, I did find myself with extra grilled cheese sandwiches.  When I had company recently and served Roasted Tomato Soup with grilled cheese sticks, I did a test-run for the sanwiches that morning. Honestly, I will serve anything scrambled with eggs and call it “breakfast.” So I whisked up two eggs and a splash of milk, soaked the extra grilled cheese sticks and bites in the eggs, squeezing the grilled cheese a bit to saturate the already-toasted bread with egg, and fried it up. This is a savory french toast, and I think some ketchup for dunking rounds out this dish – and slightly approximates tomato soup.
