Recipe & picture courtesy of Bon Appétit

4 servings
Prep: 30 minutes
Total: 30 minutes

  • 5 large eggs
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons ground cardamom, divided
  • 4 3/4-inch-thick slices egg bread
  • 4 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 2 firm but ripe unpeeled red Anjou or Bartlett pears, halved, cored, cut lengthwise into 1/3-inch-thick slices
  • 1 cup pomegranate juice
  • 3/4 cup (packed) golden brown sugar
  1. Whisk eggs, milk, vanilla, and 1/2 teaspoon cardamom to blend in 15x10x2-inch glass baking dish. Add bread slices; let stand until egg mixture is absorbed, turning bread slices occasionally with spatula, about 10 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, melt 1 tablespoon butter in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add pears; sauté until beginning to soften, about 3 minutes. Transfer pears to plate. Add 2 tablespoons butter to skillet; stir to melt. Add pomegranate juice, sugar, and remaining 3/4 teaspoon cardamom; simmer until liquid is slightly thickened and syrupy, about 5 minutes. Remove sauce from heat.
  3. Melt remaining 1 tablespoon butter on griddle or in another large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add bread slices and cook until golden brown, about 3 minutes per side. Cut French toast slices diagonally in half; divide among plates. Top with pear slices, spoon sauce over, and serve.
