Last winter, my husband Tres and I took a
ski trip with friends. We stayed in a cozy cabin, and I cooked breakfast for the group almost every day. So today I’m going to be making Mascarpone French Toast Bake: a ski group favorite! I love food, and I love to cook! The best
stories are shared in the kitchen and at the dinner table. I’m Andrea, and these are my Cooktales. Nothing makes me happier than being the first one awake so I can make breakfast. Our ski trip was the perfect setting to tip-toe out of bed, light the cozy fireplace, pour myself a cup of coffee, and start cooking. This recipe is great because I can throw it together before everyone wakes up and hits the slopes! First, crack 8 eggs into a bowl, and add 1 cup milk, 1/2 cup of cream, 2 tablespoons of sugar, some cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla, and a dash of salt. Then, whisk all the ingredients together until they’re nice and smooth. In another bowl, add one container of mascarpone cheese and 4 tables spoons of butter. Make sure the mascarpone and butter are at room temperature so they mix well. Next add 1/4 cup of honey along with some sugar and cinnamon. Stir it together until
it’s nice and smooth. Now, open the crescent roll dough and pull
each piece apart. Then, fill each crescent roll with the mascarpone
mixture, roll it up, and place it in a 9″x13″ baking dish. Do this until the pan is filled. Finally, pour the egg mixture over the crescent rolls. In a third bowl, stir together chopped pecans, brown sugar, and chopped candied ginger. Then, sprinkle it over the top of the French toast. Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 35 minutes until it’s puffed, beautiful, and golden. Mmm. This French toast is so good! It takes me right back to our ski trip last year. It’s sweet, it’s nutty… The mascarpine cheese is so creamy and it gives it such a depth, and the candied ginger really gives it a warmth. It makes me think of being on the ski slopes. You have got to try this French toast. Hey, y’all. If you like this recipe, check
