I first made this recipe on a Seafood and Wine Tour on Zodiac a few years ago, it was an idea I had been playing with for some time and this was the perfect opportunity to try it out. I don’t often repeat myself while cooking meals aboard so writing this recipe down has been a long time coming.
Savory French toast is a food not many people can wrap their minds around, just like savory oatmeal, but it has just as many topping possibilities as classic French toast. Thick slices of bread are dipped in eggs and milk seasoned with garlic powder, mustard and any other seasonings you want, this is the first layer to make it a savory dish. The syrup and fruit topping are replaced with anything from tomato slices and cheese, curried vegetables and chutney or best of all hollandaise sauce with anything. After the hollandaise sauce is made fold in something special like asparagus and peas or in this case fresh crab meat and herbs.
