Growing up, we never had the traditional sweet french toast. Our dad always made us this savory Thai version of french toast, a breakfast his mom always made for him in Thailand. A few simple ingredients with some Thai flavors makes this an easy, delicious, and interesting breakfast, lunch, or appetizer. —Double Helping
