Just in time for Shrove Tuesday aka Mardi Gras, here’s a recipe for Bourbon Peach French Toast. Since Shrove Tuesday is the last night of eating rich foods before beginning the penitential season of Lent, and the kids aren’t going to adult Mardi Gras parties, I like to serve my family something fun and delicious. And it doesn’t get much more fun and delicious than pancakes for dinner! (As a writer and mom, I don’t get out much. lol)

I have two recipes for this dish, but the other one has twice as many ingredients and is 3480 calories per serving!!!!! For me to eat that many calories there have to be Oreos involved. But this recipe is more reasonable at 190 calories per slice of bread and 380 for two slices.

I love this recipe so much that I put it in Every Deep Desire. It’s the breakfast Rafe and Juliet had the morning after their first wedding, 8 years earlier. And Rafe makes it for her again to remind her of what they’ve lost. So I guess it also makes a great Valentine’s Day Breakfast!

Bourbon Peach Sauce

  • 6 ripe peaches sliced, pits removed
  • 4 Tablespoons brown sugar
  • 4 Tablespoons Bourbon

French Toast

  • 8 slices thick sliced bread your favorite
  • 4 large eggs
  • 4 Tablespoons water
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon cloves


Bourbon Peach Sauce

  1. Preheat an electric griddle to 350℉.

  2. In a skillet over medium heat, combine the peaches with the brown sugar. Lower the heat and let the peaches absorb the sugar for 6-8 minutes, stirring infrequently so as not to break up the peaches. Add in the bourbon and stir gently. Simmer for 4-6 minutes until the alcohol has dissolved. It will look like peaches in a dark, sticky sauce.

French Toast

  1. While the peaches are simmering, mix the eggs, water, and spices in a shallow bowl. Dip the bread, coating both sides, and cook on the griddle, only flipping once.

    Place the French toast on plates and cover with bourbon peach sauce.

    If you prefer, you can serve this sauce over pancakes.
