Disney Recipe from the Vault: French Toast Loaf from Magic Kingdom’s Main Street Bakery

Sigh. We just hate it when our favorite foods fall off the menus of top spots around Walt Disney World. Sure, it’s awesome to see new things. But can’t we just keep them all???

I’ve been feeling a little nostalgic lately, and that, coupled with the chilly temps that everyone is experiencing…well, that has me dreaming of comfort food, big time. So today, I thought I’d share with you a recipe for one of my favorite Disney breakfast items of all time — French Toast Loaf from Main Street Bakery!

I love this one so much, in fact, that I named it one of my Most Missed Extinct Disney Foods! (The Cheese came back…maybe this one will too!)

While it’s great that many coffee lovers can now get a great cup of Starbucks coffee on the way to it’s a small world, I do miss all the lovely treats that you used to get here. Time to get into the kitchen and make a few for myself, I’m thinking!

This is basically herb cheese spread that’s fried and served with fruit and bread crisps. Pretty standard, eh? But that warm, creamy cheese coupled with the sweet fresh fruit was the perfect starter!

Maui Scalloped Potatoes at ‘Ohana

There have been several appetizer changes at ‘Ohana in the past several years, but the most devastating has to be the switch from scalloped potatoes to noodles. (You can read the whole, sad story here…in fact, please do, because I’m uncharacteristically funny in that blog post and it will change your whole perception of me, I promise.)

Meyer Lemon Curd Dessert at Jiko

You know I love Lemon Curd, so to have an entire dessert based around the stuff at Jiko in Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge was quite a find. And when they added [Read more…]
