Welcome to the Charleston Spice Company blog! This is a place where you can find inspiration and helpful tips about all our herbs, spices, and blends.
We thought the best way to start this blog would be with a post about two of our favorite things, brunch and Garam Masala!
After bringing home eggs from Lowland Farms and two brioche loaves from Baguette Magic brunch was a no brainer: french toast!!! Garam Masala french toast to be precise!
What?! But I thought Garam Masala was for Indian food!?
Well, you are certainly correct, but when added to your eggs and cream it creates a lovely sweet and savory french toast coating!
Here are our guidelines for making brioche french toast:
1/3 to 1/2 cup heavy cream or milk of choice
2 teaspoons garam masala
12 slices brioche bread 1″ thick
butter for cooking
Place nonstick pan on medium heat add 2 to 3 tablespoons of butter. Beat eggs, heavy cream and garam masala in a pie plate. Once mixed add your slices of brioche and allow them to sit in mixture for about 5 minutes. Add the soaked bread to the hot pan and cook until brown before flipping to other side. Serve immediately or once cooked hold in an oven at 200.
This recipe makes enough for 3 to 4 people. Add sides of fresh fruit (Strawberries from Maple Ridge Farms) and bacon (Sunny Cedar Farms) or sausage (Sweet Bay Sausage Company).
