I quite fancy making a brioche but how do you eat with it? What do you out on it?

Toasted lightly then a thin smear of jam - yum!

It's basically half way between bread and cake, so v easy to eat by itself.

And of course, there's always Nutella smile

Toast it and eat with good quality liver pate (or foie GRAS if you feel like splurging)

<drool>

No idea why there are gratuitous CAPS there!!

Seriously? Pâté?

I'm on a diet and thought of brioche because I only ever ate it in France - the package stuff which is rank so thought, hey it's ok because DD will enjoy it and I really don't want to eat it.

But pâté????? <dribbles> I love pâté...

Brioche bread and butter pudding is amazing, there's a fantastic nigella recipe for it with marmalade (and no added butter, there's already so much in the brioche). It is so delicious.

YY to pâté with it too.

Getting hungry now grin

Fry mushrooms in butter and garlic and then add cream and parsley and whack it on top of toasted brioche. Sweet but savoury and earthy or bloody lovely in other words.

Toasted with course pâté and caramelised onion chutney also yummy.

Make bread and butter pudding with it too.

Omg we have brioche in the larder!!!

Madame I'm going to have to go out and buy some mushrooms now.

I have pate too but it's mine, all mine

Lightly toast or briefly fry in butter or griddle a thick slice of brioche. Meanwhile in a small frying pan melt a knob of butter, add sliced fruit such as banana or strawberries, toss briefly, add a bit of sugar or honey and a splodge of booze such as brandy or Triple Sec, as soon as it bubbles pile onto the slice of brioche, add cream or ice cream. Enjoy! grin

Take brioche bun. Cut in almost half (like a pita bread). Insert one or two scoops of ice cream. Stuff in face.

= ice cream a la Siciliana, aka bloody gorgeous grin

It is lovely with some grilled pancetta or salami. I need the shops to open now so I can go and buy brioche!

Make French toast with it, served with some fruit and maple syrup.
