Hong Kong

Sweet like a dessert, this french toast Hong Kong style is definitely a comfort food. We were introduced to it by a local, who suggested we indulge in it at 3 am.  We didn’t argue. After polishing off a piece, we agreed french toast is better in Hong Kong than in France. Be prepared: This recipe is not for the dieter.

Hong Kong’s French Toast


White sandwich bread, the thicker the better

Peanut Butter


Maple Syrup

3 large eggs

1/2 cup milk

2 tbsps fine sugar

1 tsp vanilla

In a deep dish, beat the eggs with sugar, milk and vanilla until the sugar is dissolved.

Spread the peanut butter liberally on one piece of bread, some butter on another piece of bread, and put the two pieces of bread together, making a sandwich. This is for one person, and you repeat this process with enough french toasts to serve your family.

In a non-stick pan, melt about 1 tbsp butter over medium heat.

Dip the sandwich into the egg batter and fry in the butter until golden brown on both sides.

Remove toast and put it on a plate. Add a thin slice of butter on top and drizzle with maple syrup over it. Or you can drizzle condensed milk on top of the finished product.
