COBS makes a true effort to ensure their business practices are sustainable, ethically sourced, and environmentally friendly.

  1. Divide the ricotta cheese between each slice of bread and spread evenly. Place raspberries on one slice of bread.

  3. Heat the oil in a large pan over medium low heat. Cook the sandwiches slowly on one side for about five minutes until egg is golden brown and set. Turn and cook the other side.
  4. Remove French toast sandwich from the pan and place on a serving plate. Cut into half, drizzle with maple syrup, dust with powdered sugar, and add fresh raspberries if desired.
