Season a slice of bread with mixture of your choice of dried/powdered savory spices (maybe a curry). French toast it as usual. Top with complementary gravy/sauce/condiment. Interesting idea, Vit, lots of room for very easy experimentation!
i like the way you think, spork. it seems to me though that it might be better to add the dried spices to the egg mixture rather than on the bread itself. wouldn't the spices, especially the fine powdered ones, get unevenly distributed on the bread? dried basil or marjoram, and thyme, with some scallions or chives, mixed with the egg dip should be good for my first attempt at savory french toast. a curry version sounds great, but i think i need a bit of practice before attempting it. as you said, there are so many possible variations with this, spork....
