6 large eggs

1 3/4 cups milk

1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon TruffLove™ Sea salt with black truffles

Unsalted butter for cooking

Mixed Berry Compote:

2 cups raspberries

1 cup blueberries

1/2 cup blackberries

3 tablespoons brown sugar

2 tablespoons lemon juice

1 pinch ground cinnamon

Bourbon Vanilla Maple Syrup:

1 cup TruffLove™ Maple Syrup with Black Truffles

1/4 cup bourbon

2 teaspoons vanilla extract


Mixed Berry Compote:

Place 2 cups of raspberries, 1 cup of blueberries, 1/2 cup of blackberries, 3 tablespoons brown sugar, 2 tablespoons lemon juice and 1 pinch ground cinnamon in a small pot.

Stir to combine, then cover with a lid and cook on low for 5 minutes.

Remove the lid and continue cooking for another 10-15 minutes until the mixture has reduced but are berries still chunky.

Let it cool slightly before serving.

Bourbon Vanilla Black Truffle Maple Syrup:

In a small pot, mix 1 cup of TruffLove™ Maple Syrup with Black Truffles and 1/4 cup of bourbon.

Stir to combine and mix together lightly.

Please over medium-high heat and bring to a boil.

Reduce heat to a simmer for 8-10 minutes.

Remove from heat, and add in 2 teaspoons vanilla extract, stir to combine and then serve (or keep on low heat until ready to serve).

Brioche French Toast:

In a large shallow bowl or dish, add 6 large eggs, 1 and 3/4 cups of milk, 1 and 1/2 teaspoons of vanilla extract, 1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon, and 1/2 teaspoon TruffLove™ Sea salt with Black Truffles; whisk together.

Heat a large, nonstick skillet or griddle over medium heat. When desired heat level reached, melt 1-2 tablespoons of unsalted butter onto the pan or spray pan with cooking spray.

Add slices of Chocolate Chip Brioche bread to the shallow dish with whisked together ingredients, and soak as many slices in the egg mixture as wanted for about 15-20 seconds on each side before transferring to your hot pan/griddle.

Cook for about 1 minute on each side or until golden brown. (Cook time will vary with type of bread used, size, and thickness) 

If you want to keep the cooked pieces warm, place them in the oven at 200 degrees while you finish cooking the others.

Serve with Berry Compote and Maple Syrup mixture!
