Raspberry Orange French Toast Cups Recipe

Whether you’re planning an intimate breakfast for Mother’s Day or inviting the whole gang over for a big family brunch, try treating the moms in your life to an extra-special dish: Raspberry Orange Baked French Toast Cups.

Kontos Foods, maker of artisan flatbreads and other ethnic foods, suggests using Kontos Cocktail Flatbreads – delicious mini Pita breads – to make this elegant and delicious treat. In addition to the mini Flatbreads, the French Toast Cups feature fresh raspberries, grated orange rind, fresh eggs and other wholesome ingredients. This recipe will make about 5 servings.

Raspberry Orange French Toast Cups Recipe

1 pkg. (5.2 oz.) Kontos Cocktail Flatbread (20 pieces)
1/4 cup seedless raspberry preserves
1 tbsp. butter, softened
Fresh raspberries
3 large eggs
1 cup half-and-half
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tsp. grated orange rind
1 tbsp. granulated sugar
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
Whipped butter
Maple syrup

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Spread 10 Cocktail Flatbreads with raspberry preserves and top with remaining flatbreads to make little sandwiches. Generously coat 5 (7- to 8-oz.) ramekins (a small glazed ceramic or glass bowl) with butter and place on baking sheet. Arrange two sandwiches and 3 to 4 raspberries in each ramekin. Beat eggs in small bowl with whisk until frothy. Whisk in half-and-half, vanilla and orange rind. Divide egg mixture among ramekins. Using a fork, gently press flatbread sandwiches into egg mixture. Let stand 10 minutes, pressing sandwiches into egg mixture 4 or 5 times.

Bake for 25 minutes or until golden brown and set in center.

Sprinkle with combined sugar-cinnamon mixture and garnish with mint leaf. Serve warm with raspberries, whipped butter and maple syrup.

“This warm, delicious Baked French Toast is an elegant treat for Mother’s Day. The individually baked cups are fun and simple to make, so you can even get young children involved in preparation of Mom’s special meal,” said Steve Kontos, vice president and owner of Kontos Foods.

I never have tried to use a flatbread to make French toast, because usually the flatbread wouldn't soak up the egg mixture. However, by using the small ramekins you can leave the flat bread soaking in the egg mixture. This is an interesting version of French toast.
