Summer gatherings at our house are usually matched with grilled foods. It’s such a wonderful smell and a beautiful gathering place in the backyard. The kids run and play while the adults have great conversation, all while smelling the delicious food cooking on the grill. Can’t you just smell it?
Yep, the neighbors are jealous.
Now that we’re settled into our home here in Charleston, SC, where our immediate family is also located, we’ve been frequently hosting big family gatherings. All the laughs and good food make me all warm and fussy inside. And while most of these gatherings are for dinner, breakfast is even better!
Typically when I make french toast, I can only fit 3-4 pieces of batter soaked bread on my griddle. This makes for a slow breakfast. However, our grill fit the entire challah bread loaf! Everyone gets a warm slice at the same time!
Pass a mimosa!
What’s more are the beautiful char marks on each slice that create a simple, yet appetizing plate. The flavor is rich with vanilla and smoke. You know, the smokey flavor of grilling out?! Well, it’s now in a breakfast food. Top it with maple syrup and some fresh fruit and you have a summer breakfast straight from the grill!
Not to mention, it’s the perfect Father’s Day breakfast for your sweet-loving father.
