With the weather warming up, I’m happy to see more of my favorite fruits come into season.
Please note, the giveaway portion is now closed. Congratulations to comment entry #20!
Have you seen the commercials for IHOP’s brioche French toast? I’ve seen the commercials several times and each time they’ve made me hungry for French toast. Brioche bread is always my top choice for French toast so I definitely had high hopes for IHOP’s version using brioche bread.
The other morning, I had the tv on while getting ready for work when IHOP’s commercial came on. Having not had breakfast, I really wanted to try the brioche french toast. I made a mental note that Mr. K and I needed to go soon. Then during a break at work, I checked my email, and there was an invitation for me to try out IHOP’s brioche french toast and to do a giveaway on my blog so a lucky reader could try it too.
As soon as I received my gift card in the mail, Mr. K and I went to our local IHOP try it. Since IHOP is 24 hours, I didn’t have to wait for breakfast hour. And who doesn’t love eating breakfast for dinner? After eating at so many nice brunch places lately, I’ve forgotten how cheap the prices are at IHOP.
The solo brioche French toast is $4.99 a plate. You can get it with eggs, hashbrown and sausage or bacon for only $5.99. There are various other combinations too, all for less than $9.
They offer three flavors of the brioche toast: berry berry, peaches and cream, and banana foster.
This looked so visually appealing on the menu and I was happy to see a similar looking plate before me. Lots of blueberries and strawberries over a strawberry syrup. The brioche French toast was just how I imagined: fluffy, soft bread, lightly coated in egg. It was a little heavy on the syrup and next time I might ask for it to be on the side instead, but the French toast itself was delicious. I have to say it was even better than I expected. I thought it was as good as some of the brunch places I’ve been going to that charge $9-10 a plate.
I added the combo, which came with hash browns, two sausage links and eggs. Not bad for $5.99.
I’ve been wanting to make these omelet stuffed peppers for a while, but we haven’t had a free weekend to enjoy them. Finally we had a free weekend morning, so I surprised Mr. K with them.
My omelets usually consist of eggs, cheese, peppers, mushrooms, ham/sausage/or bacon. These peppers are stuffed with all the classic omelet ingredients, minus the diced peppers since the omelet is already stuffed in the peppers.
