Binging with Babish: Rum French Toast from Mad Men

  • Published: 23 January 2018
  • Don Draper likes his french toast the way he likes himself - drenched in booze. An over-proofed brioche, a cabin in the woods, two accidental audio glitches, and a whole lot of dark rum are at the center of this week's revisiting of Madison Avenue's frequent clashes of food and alcohol. Enjoy with a Lucky Strike.

                      I honestly think your best bet would have been a rum Anglaise with a splash of Maple syrup. Maybe make a simple caramel and add the cream and rum; reduce to a sticky glaze consistency

                                                  When I make French toast, I spoon the extra custard mixture over the bread while it fries a tablespoon at a time. The bread will absorb more as it cooks and the addition slows the browning. This keeps it from going concave once it's off the heat. The texture is like fried bread pudding.

                                                                                    I really like Soaking Toast in Egg, Fry it, then put a fist full of cheese on it and basically make French Cheese Toast Samich.
                                                                                    Usually with a good amount of salt... or sometimes I mix soysauce into the egg. It's really good xD
