The Infamous "Coast Toast" Recipe

"Coast Toast" is featured on the breakfast & brunch menu at Beaumont's Neighborhood Eatery in Bird Rock and also at Brockton Villa (Beaumont's sister location in La Jolla Village). Once you've tried it's hard to order anything else! Best described as a soufflĂ© like version of French toast, it's made with thick-cut French bread and a hint of orange.  This will make you popular if you're cooking for guests and is sure to be a family favorite!
