Savory Thai Toast

The Patti Myint famous Thai Toast recipe with Shrimp and (optional) Crab on French bread.

Cook time:

Khanom Phang Tawd is similar to shrimp toast from Chinese pop food. This particular recipe is something I took from my mom’s repertoire of signature items. She served a version of this at her restaurant for over 40 years. I love the “use-your-resources” approach with the soft, pillowy, French white bread and how the egg batter plays with the senses, almost presenting like a brunch-eseque French toast but…it’s packed with savory delight. I recall hers having crab meat as well, my budget will stick to this take for now 😉. For something so simple, it’s pretty grand! Enjoy.
