THE LAZY SUNDAY smoked salmon + eggs benedict + cream cheese + french toast

So you know when it's a Sunday, and you're not in a particular rush to eat, but when you do, you want it to be ALL OF THE THINGS!!!!!!(?) Well this is the ultimate glutton brunch sandwich, like, legit. Double decker smoked salmon, cream cheese, egg benedict, ON FRENCH TOAST. For those Sundays you wake up with a negligible hangover, but a total aversion to leaving your house and seeing any more damn people this weekend, well at least until you've had a good alone-time date with this food mountain. The philosophy behind it: foods that you love, and would happily eat on their own; throw them together. Then eat it in your underwear while reviewing tinder instagram shenanigans from Saturday night and definitely not wondering if you're going to be alone forever food will always be your one true love. The answer is yes, so make it count.

What's in it?

  • french toast (Queen St Gluten Free Bakery white bean and millet seed)
  •      egg
  •      vanilla
  •      cinnamon
  • smoked salmon
  • green onion cream cheese
  • heirloom cherry tomatoes
  • fried egg
  • holandaise sauce
  • romaine 
  • salt and pepper
  • butter

Soooo made some french toast again. Soaked the bread in egg, with a splash of vanilla, then into the pan with butter, and a sprinkling of cinnamon. When they're ready, let them cool a bit so as to not melt the fluffy cream cheese. Always buy the good shit. It makes a world of difference. Pair with heirloom tomato because what could be more heavenly?

Enter, smoked salmon from Grain, Curd & Bean, Toronto. Half of it went in my mouth before it touched the sandwich. It is probably one of the best foods I can think of, maybe because I eat it on such an occasional basis, it's always special.

Now for layer two, slap a slice of french toast on that, and pile on the romaine, egg, drizzle the hollandaise, sprinkle salt, and pepper. I made the hollandaise by simmering an egg yolk with some milk, and butter on a low heat. That's how you make that, right? I need to get less lazy at looking up recipes.

Et voilà!

Serious sandwich time.

Und, mit Kaffee. Ich liebe Frühstück. Hard.

Now go follow the GS instagram, for pocket #foodporn.
