Japanese Parsley ‘Seri’ French Toast | セリのフレンチトースト

Weekend coming up and a nice simple recipe for a late morning brunch.

A good way of making good use of leftover baguettes or french bread in your bread bin.

Any type of herbs will do but my ‘window garden’ is showing signs of early spring and I have a pot of Japanese Parsley (called ‘seri’) growing new leaves so using the ‘Seri’ and ‘Cilantro (Coriander)’ and bacon, this is is a lovely brunch recipe not sweet but rather….goes with some wine or champagne.










Japanese Parsley – Seri French Toast Recipe –

  • 4 slices of Baguette (1.5cm thickness)
  • 1 + 1/2 Tablespoon finely chopped Japanese Parsley ‘SERI’
  • 1 + 1/2 Tablespoon finely chopped Cilantro
  • 1 + 1/2 Tablespoon finely chopped Bacon
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 Tablespoons of Milk or Cream
  • 1 Teaspoon of Salt
  • Pinch of black pepper
  • Vegetable Oil or Rapeseed Oil
  1. Chop the Japanese parsley, cilantro and bacon.
  2. Beat the eggs and add milk or cream (desire) adding salt and pepper.
  3. Combine the ingredients with the eggs.
  4. Dip the baguette into the egg batter and place straight into the hot pan. Fry for 2 to 3 minutes on each side while adding excess batter on top of each side (so you are not left with just the egg batter) until golden-brown color and crisp. Place it on a paper towel-lined plate or rack to drain the oil.
