I ordered 6 boxes of Girl Scout cookies.

SIX. BOXES.

Whyyyyyyyyy would I do this to myself? Also as much as I love the classic Thin Mint and Samoas my two favorites are Tagalongs (hellooooo peanut butter AND chocolate!) and Savannah Smiles. If you have never had the second cookie it’s basically a crumbly shortbread cookie packed with TONS of lemon flavor and then covered in powdered sugar. It’s the type of cookie I want to eat with coffee….for breakfast. I know. I shouldn’t eat sweets for breakfast but sometimes I can’t resist it. If you’re not a fan of cookies for breakfast you could always go for a little French toast. And if you’re feeling pretty St. Patrick’s Day festive you take that French toast and give it an Irish twist by using Irish soda bread.

Heck. Yes.

Usually when I buy soda bread I just slice it, toast it, slather it in butter and then eat it so fast it’s as if I’m scared someone will steal it off my plate. However, this time around I wanted to do something a little different with my bread. I decided to turn it into Irish soda bread French toast. If you’re feeling fancy you can even put in some Jameson with egg batter but it’s totally optional.

Optional meaning – if you were me you would not read this as optional. You would dump it in and go about your day happily knowing you starting your morning with Irish whiskey.

The first time I lived had Soda bread was when I was living in Ireland and I wasn't a fan at all! It grew on me, though, and I'm totally in love with this french toast version of it. Brilliant idea!!
