French Toast with Red-Wine Nectarines
Makes 6 servings
- 1 cup red wine
- 1/3 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
- 3 nectarines, halved, pitted and cut into wedges
- 2 large eggs
- 1 cup half-and-half
- 6 slices country-style bread, halved diagonally
- 2 tablespoons butter
- Vanilla ice cream, for serving
In a medium saucepan, bring the wine and 1/3 cup sugar to a boil. Cook, stirring occasionally, until slightly syrupy, 6 to 8 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the nectarines.
In a large baking dish, whisk together the eggs, half-and-half, 2 tablespoons sugar and a pinch of salt. Place the bread in the dish and let stand about 1 minute, pressing to help it absorb the custard; turn over and repeat.
In a large nonstick skillet, melt 1 tablespoon butter over medium; swirl the pan to coat. Add 1/2 the bread and cook until golden, about 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate and repeat with the remaining butter and bread. Serve topped with red-wine nectarines and ice cream.
