Why we love it: Who doesn't love indulging in some French toast from time to time? We are loving this pick from Searsucker because it's not at all what you would expect from the typically sweet and powdered sugar-topped brunch treat. This meat-free dinner option offers a savory spin on traditional French toast, served with burrata cheese and a delicious variety of roasted mushrooms cooked in a house red wine vinaigrette. The French toast itself is perfectly buttered, thick yet soft and just airy enough - the ideal mix for a French toast-style bread. The burrata brings all of the quality ingredients together and acts as a spread, similar to how mascarpone cheese would in a sweeter French toast dish. This is ideal for sharing as an appetizer with a date, or enjoying all to yourself.
