What to do with leftover Brioche 2

September 13th, 2007  | Category: Bread, Breakfast and Brunch


You baked it. Then you cut it into small rectangles, toasted it and turned it into a delicious dessert. What’s next?

You cut it into slices, place them in a toaster and then top it with your favorite ingredients.

I spread Nutella on anything edible, so it was a no brainer. Sprinkle of pistachios adds both color and extra flavor. Then some homemade sour cherry jam. Simple and delicious. After that an egg, sprinkled with crushed red peppers and dried oregano.

Lastly, fresh tomatoes from my parents’ garden topped with feta cheese, drizzled with extra virgin olive oil.

It is impossible to exhaust possibilities with this delicious bread, but I hope I have given you enough inspiration to try Dorie’s wonderful brioche recipe. And if you haven’t bought her book yet, head over to Amazon – right now.

    I prefer my leftover brioche simple.

    Perhaps with just a nice warm cup of salep

    andreea – Thank you. Let me know how it turns out.

    Filiz – Çok teşekkürler. Haklısın yazıları öğlen vakitlerine denk getirmemek lazım.

    David – Since the beginning of last week, the weather has taken a dramatic change and temperatures are now averaging around 20°C. And that means the salep season is approaching fast. Poor orchids…

    I’ve been sourcing around for brioche recipes, and have had so many bookmarked but I’m still sitting on them, waiting for the right time. Having a sweet tooth, I always worried not being able to finish the brioche. Thanks for the wonderful endless ideas for leftover brioche! Captivating photos on this site; I’ll be dropping by for more 😉

    Cenk, that’s just genius! This is not trying to get rid of some leftovers, this is Art. I love your brioche with pistachios on top. It looks just like your brownie. And by the way, you should answer Clare, she sounds very serious.Should I congratulate you guys?

  11. 11 - Sylvia on September 14th, 2007

    Wonderful your ideas. The last time that I made brioche I only thought in sandwich with parma ham.

  12. 12 - Cenk on September 14th, 2007

    Joey, ovenhaven – Thank you. Glad you liked it.

    Clare – Very tempting offer, but sorry, I am taken 😉

    Gizem, Miray – Thank you for the nice comments.

    Rose – You’re so kind. Yes, it definitely looks like the brownie I did a while back. As far as Clare and her tempting offer I must say that I am very much flattered, but also taken.

    Sylvia – That sounds like a great idea as well!

    Cenk everything looks amazing but I’m obsessed with the omelette. The yolk is so round and so popped out, it doesn’t feel like real 🙂 I am trying to say it’s the most beautifully cooked egg I’ve ever seen!!

    Bravooo :):):)

  16. 16 - Cenk on September 18th, 2007

    Fruit Species – Thank you!

    eni – Çok teşekkür ederim.

    Zeynep Seda – It took me many eggs to get there 🙂 Thank you!
