French Toast with Pineapple Marmalade

Viande des Grisons is air-dried beef or "beef prosciutto" hailing from the Alps, and, sliced thinly and cut into small pieces, it's a delicious topping with brioche French toast and pineapple. If you can't find viande des Grisons, bresaola, an Italian air-dried beef, is a good substitute.

French Toast Shopping Tip

What’s the difference between brown and white eggs? Besides color, nothing – different breeds of chicken account for the differences in color – quality and freshness are what really count.

French Toast Cooking Tip

In addition to keeping foods like granola, yogurt, and fruit on hand, plan ahead for hectic weekdays by whipping up extra batches of waffles or pancakes and individually freezing them for easy morning meals.
