St Pierre Bakery, the nation’s leading brioche brand, ushers in National Brioche Day with a series of sweet and savory recipes headlining France’s beloved bread. Held annually on May 14th, the niche food holiday observes 24 hours devoted to France’s magnifique golden-glazed treat.
Brioche boasts a curious, centuries-old history, shares the brand. Experts have traced the origins of brioche all the way back to 1400s Normandy and believe the recipe first reached Paris around the 1700s. Legend has it that the mighty bread may have even sparked the French revolution: some speculate that the Queen’s infamous diatribe, “Let them eat cake!” was actually mistranslated from the word “brioche.”
In honor of National Brioche Day, the bakery is inviting long-time brioche buffs and new enthusiasts to try their hand at one of three indulgent recipes that spotlight brioche’s versatility and whimsy:
- Sweet Brunch French Toast with Bananas and Caramel Sauce
Add a touch of Parisian flair to your breakfast or brunch. Rich caramel, banana, and golden brioche come together in an original French Toast recipe.
- Nutella Bostock
A classic French pastry, Bostock was created as a way to use up day-old brioche. Soaked in syrup, generously smothered in frangipane and baked until it’s crispy on top, Bostock is a sumptuous cross between French toast and an almond croissant. A sweet twist on the original recipe, this chocolatey treat adds a generous helping of Nutella and an additional slice of Brioche Loaf.
- Happy Egg Breakfast Brioche Toasts Stack
This Breakfast Toast Stack is filled with savory layers of juicy tomatoes, meaty mushrooms, caramelized onions, crispy bacon, and fresh chives. For the grand finale, top it all off with a perfectly fried egg. This is the ultimate breakfast dish that’s easy to make and sure to impress.
