Yucatán Style French Toast: Ultra Decadent

It has been 15 years since we packed our bags to move from Mexico City to Texas. I’ve taken every opportunity to go back to visit. There is always something new to learn and to rediscover. And there is always a dish that sticks with me in such a way that it has me running back home to make it for my boys. If they request it, time and again, it becomes a home staple that I hope to pass on. That’s the case with the ultra decadent Yucatán style French toast.

Sweetened Condensed Milk

I grew up in Mexico City with sweetened condensed milk in my family’s pantry. It is an ingredient that is part of my upbringing, it speaks of home to me. We had it not only for breakfast, dessert, milkshakes, smoothies, snacks and after school treats (drizzled over fresh fruit or spread over Maria cookies).
