Gingerbread Pain Perdu
My chef from the Ritz Carlton and I created this recipe together. Serve with Mapleland Farms maple syrup or The Hamptons honey and fresh berries. I like them with bananas Foster as a decadent way to kick off the weekend.Adapted from "Fresh from the Market" by Laurent Tourondel and Charlotte March.

In French, French toast is pain perdu, or "lost bread," because it's made from stale bread.

Yes, this is French toast, but a superior one. Unlike normal French toast this batter cooks into a custardy, crispy coating that leaves the bread creamy and oh so good. The use of good egg bread is a must here. Homemade is best, however store bought (such as Hawaiian bread) will work in a pinch.
