Hi, Friend! Happy Sunday! How’s your weekend been? I spent most of the weekend inside the house, wearing my most favorite purple robe, and watching the snowfall from my window. Don’t worry, I combed my hair and took a shower, too.

You know what the deal is around here, right? I am Macedonian and very proud of it. But you knew that. Once in a while I come around here, make a mention of it, even share a recipe or two that I grew up on, such as the Oven Baked Macaroni and Feta Cheese or this amazing Meat and Potato Gratin

If there was a food-word that could best describe me and my taste buds, it would be this – this soft, fragrant, delicious Savory Feta Cheese French Toast. It.is.BEYOND!

Growing up, this was our morning breakfast every Sunday. We (Macedonians) call this, “Przeni Lepcinja”, a.k.a. Fried Bread Slices, and not French Toast. In fact, the first time I heard it called that was when we came to the States. The French don’t call it French Toast, either! They call it Pain Perdu, a.k.a. Lost Bread. So there!

I remember my Mom would purposely leave the loaf of bread on the counter the night before so that it would be as stale as possible the next day. We’d come home from Church, gather around the kitchen table and wait for Mom to deliver the goods.

Eggs, milk, fresh thyme and feta cheese all soaked up by this sliced beauty. What could be better!? A side of plain yogurt is all you need to complete the meal. If you find yourselves fighting for the last slice, don’t worry, it’s quite normal. We do that every single time they make their appearance.

Also?! This makes a great Brinner, too!

ENJOY!

  1. Kate,
    I am very very intrigued by the concept of savory french toast.
    This sounds, and looks, delicious.
    Thanks!

  2. Delicious! Do you guys use a goat feta cheese or just a regular cow feta cheese?

    Otherwise I’ve tried slightly altered sample of the same recipe, and it tasted great!

      Hi Rose!! In fact, we use sheep feta cheese. Macedonian feta is almost always made with sheep milk.

          Yes, it is sharper, and the taste is more pronounced. Also, it’s not as salty as the Greek’s feta cheese, but not as sweet as the French. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. French toast, French bread – this looks absolutely delicious! I love the feta and thyme. Definitely need to try this because we love French toast on for Sunday brunch! Thanks!

    Wow, I’ve never even contemplated savory french toast! What an utterly fabulous idea! I much prefer savory flavors to sweet ones, and I can’t wait to try your recipe.

  5. I adore savory foods made sweet and vice versa. And thyme is my favorite herb. AND feta is my favorite crumbly cheese! This looks amazing.
