Savory Green Curry French Toast Recipe
  • Meal


  • Cusine



1 can coconut milk

1/2 cup green curry paste

1/4 bunch cilantro , roughly chopped

6 scallions, both white and green parts, roughly chopped

2 tablespoons lime juice , from about 1 lime

1 tablespoon fish sauce

4 large eggs


Butter, for cooking

To Serve:

4 to 8 Crispy Fried Eggs

Additional chopped cilantro and scallion, for garnish

Molasses or maple syrup


In the jar of a blender, blend together coconut milk, green curry paste, cilantro, scallion, lime juice, and fish sauce until smooth. Add eggs and blend until combined. Pour coconut mixture into a large roasting pan or 9- by 13-inch baking dish. Add sliced bread and allow to soak at least 1 hour at room temperature, or preferably overnight in the refrigerator, flipping once during the soak to coat both sides. Preheat a 12-inch cast iron or nonstick pan over medium heat. Add 2 tablespoons (30g) butter and heat until foamy. Add 2 to 3 pieces soaked bread and cook until browned on both sides and heated through, about 10 minutes. Repeat with remaining bread and additional butter, holding cooked French toast warm in a 250 degrees F (120 degrees C) oven until ready to serve. Serve French toast with crispy fried eggs, chopped cilantro and scallion, and a drizzle of molasses or maple.
