This frittata recipe is the first in brand new series: Easy Weeknight Meals.
- 1 loaf of Irish Soda Bread, sliced (use this Irish Soda Bread mix or try this recipe)
- 6 eggs
- 1 cup milk
- 1 cup orange juice
- Zest of one orange
- 2 tbsp real maple syrup, plus more when serving
- 1 tbsp vanilla
- 1 tbsp cinnamon
- ½ tsp cloves
- ½ tsp nutmeg
- Powdered sugar
- glass baking dish or glass pie pan
- electric griddle (or a large rectangular skillet)
- Preheat your electric griddle or skillet to about 300-350 degrees.
- In a 9 x 11 Pyrex pan (or a round glass pie pan), add the eggs, milk, orange juice, maple syrup and all spices.
- Add the zest from an orange into the egg/milk mixture, and whisk the mixture until it is well combined.
- Arrange the sliced bread, the egg/milk mixture and the skillet in close proximity to each other. This makes it much easier to grab, dunk and cook your soon-to-be-scrumptious Irish Soda Bread French toast.
- Melt a little butter on the griddle or skillet.
- Using a fork, grab a piece of the toast and place it in the egg/milk mixture. Depending on the freshness of the bread (fresher bread will absorb the liquid quicker), allow the bread to soak in the mixture for 3-5 seconds or just until it looks like the toast is saturated but not soggy.
- Place the perfectly soaked Irish soda bread toast (aaahhh... the pressure!!) on the heated skillet. Keep repeating this process with subsequent toast slices until you have a happy little grouping of dunked-and-cooking Irish Soda Bread slices across your skillet.
- Inhale the lovely cinnamon-maple syrup-bread aroma. Prepare yourself for the onslaught of children running into the kitchen shouting, “Mmmmm…mama, what are you making?!?! And why are you drooling?”
- Flip the Irish Soda Bread French Toast slices once the underside is browned (maybe 3-5 minutes, depending on your griddle). Cook another 3 minutes or so on the opposite site until there are no more shiny “wet” spots on the bread and it looks completely cooked through.
- Serve with melted butter, maple syrup and a sprinkling of powdered sugar. Enjoy!
