A Winter Snow Day OOTD
January 25, 2021
Several Disney trips ago, my fiancé’s family and I ate at the Biergarten Restaurant in the Germany Pavilion at Epcot. It was one of my favorite meals, and consisted of a huge buffet with a plethora of European delights, such as spaetzle, schnitzel, and my personal favorite: a cheesecake dessert with a berry compote. I left that meal (and the whole trip!) dreaming about that berry compote – it was incredible! All I could think was “man, this would be delicious with brunch!” So today I share with you my recipe for french toast sticks with a beautiful blueberry compote!
The compote at the Biergarten Restaurant featured a variety of berries, but since blueberries are my favorite I wanted to focus on them. The compote features frozen blueberries and the dish is then topped with fresh blueberries for a refreshing finish. The compote also gets a hint of citrus with the use of Cointreau – yum!
I also am totally digging the “french toast sticks” concept. I mean, just look at how cute they are! You can use your hands to dip them into the bowl and scoop up the compote, or you can use a knife and fork if you prefer a cleaner approach. The whole dish is made even tastier if you drizzle it with some high quality maple syrup before eating.
This compote is very versatile too. It would be delicious over some vanilla ice cream, or stick with the brunch theme and use it as a topping for your next batch of pancakes or waffles!
