I always look forward to Recipe Redux challenges, but this was especially exciting... Because it required the use of a liquor or other alcohol in the recipe of our choosing. How awesome of a task is that?
Sneaking spirits into my meals is not a regular occurrence for me, but I can rise to the occasion if I absolutely have to.
It had been quite a while since I'd made French toast, despite the fact that it used to be a culinary staple of mine. Oh, and 99% of the time it was stuffed with goodies of some sort.
Chia jam, vegan cream cheese, tofu bacon, you name it.
Inspired by my past creations, I chose to make something even more decadent.
...because when your recipe starts out with a shot or two of whiskey, there can't be anything average about it. Bigger is better. Go big or go home, am I right?
So I "went big" and decadent and ended with this heavenly double decker marshmallow and chocolate-stuffed sandwich.
I am drooling just thinking about it. If you are drooling as well, do yourself a favor and make this recipe. I hope you enjoy, s'mores fans and alcohol lovers alike.
