Savory Herb French Toast

Teri & Jenny
A savory twist on the classic french toast. We added some fresh herbs and other flavorful savory ingredients to our batter. The result is a delicious breakfast or brunch dish, topped with a perfectly fried egg with a runny yolk. This is the perfect savory breakfast dish!
