We had some awesome visitors staying with us the week before Thanksgiving. It’s not often that we have visitors, nor that we have visitors who appreciate good cooking, so I knew it was a time to pull out all the punches. They were pretty busy visiting others, so the only meal that was open was breakfast on Thanksgiving morning. I’m not a huge breakfast person but I knew this would be solid gold.
The recipe comes from The Kitchn, a website full of great recipes and cooking tips.
It sounds fancy shmancy and tastes that way as well. But it’s easy. Like, I just played Cards Against Humanity and helped polish off 3 bottles of wine and lots of beer before throwing this together, easy. Though, it was a reminder to always read through a recipe fully before starting…I didn’t plan out the pre-buttering of the bread nor the fact that I had to essentially create a double boiler. But, it was also a reminder that being resourceful in the kitchen is an awesome trait and we made it work.
When we made it, we did a mixture of french bread and Wildtree’s Chai Bread. The Chai bits were better than the regular, so I definitely recommend going all in on the Chai and forgetting about the French. I was hesitant because I thought the flavor would be too full with everything, but it definitely wasn’t.
Lastly, it makes, a lot. Four grown adults and a baby barely put a dent in it. I’d definitely recommend cutting the recipe in half unless you’re feeding an army.
