Recipe and Preparation
In a delightful twist on a classic brunch dish, a chef from South Florida infuses a tropical flair into it. The culinary artist behind this creation is Beatriz Rivera, and the dish is served at Monty’s in Miami. The star of the menu is the Caribbean French Toast.
To create this dish, the following ingredients are required: a half cup of eggs, one cup of Half and Half, 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, 2 teaspoons of Triple Sec, 1 can of Coco Lopez, a pinch of salt, Brioche Texas toast, grated coconut, butter, guava puree, whipped ricotta cheese, and powdered sugar.
The preparation involves mixing eggs, Half and Half, vanilla extract, cinnamon, Triple Sec, Coco Lopez, and salt to form the batter. Butter is heated on a flat top, and the bread is dipped in the batter, coated with grated coconut, and cooked until golden brown on both sides.
For serving, the toast is drizzled with guava puree and whipped ricotta cheese, then topped with powdered sugar. This delightful dish can be enjoyed at Monty’s Coconut Grove, located at 2550 S Bayshore Drive in Miami.
