Tangerine French Toast

2 eggs

1/2 cup milk, I use soy milk

1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

dash of salt

1 Tbs. oil, plus more for cooking

Rind from 1/2 of a tangerine, minced

1/2 tangerine squeezed

ground pepper to taste

Use a peeler to take off 1/2 of the rind from your tangerine and mice finely.


Combine, egg, milk, vanilla, oil, salt and minced rind to a shallow pan and whisk together. Then squeeze in the juice of 1/2 of the tangerine.


Place slices of bread into liquid mixture to soak, turning after a few minutes to coat evenly. Start heating your pan on medium heat setting with a little oil.


When pan is hot, place the slices of soaked bread on the pan. I use a cast iron stove top griddle… any griddle or large skillet will work fine. Cook until golden brown on each side.


Serve while hot, top with butter, syrup and a sprinkle of powdered sugar. Enjoy!

    I’ve also been in a tangerine mood. I just tried a nice tangerine smoothie with strawberry yogurt: http://juiceplus.wordpress.com/2008/03/13/tangerine-juice-plus-strawberry-yogurt/
