French Toast

French toast

When it comes to breakfast foods, I love my sweets. Ok! I love sweets all times of the day and suffer from a chronic sweet tooth! French toast is one of my favorites, but a good French Toast is hard to find. 

Often French Toast is soggy, or egg-y in the middle. The secret to a great French Toast, besides the nutmeg, is to not allow the bread to soak in the egg mixture.

FRENCH TOAST

3 large eggs
1/4 cup milk
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
a dash of nutmeg
8-9 pieces of sliced sandwich bread

 
In a shallow dish combine all ingredients except bread.  Pre-heat an electric griddle to 350. Spray the griddle with non-stick cooking spray. Quickly dip the bread in the mixture on both sides, and place directly on the griddle.  Cook 3-4 minutes on each side (or until each side in browned).  Serve with powdered sugar and fresh fruit or with syrup.

TIPS: I use a glass pie plate for my mixture.  Go ahead and double the recipe – any uneaten French Toast can be saved until the next day, and warmed up in the toaster.  If you do not have an electric griddle, use a non-stick fry pan.

One Response to French Toast

  1. I love French toast too, but I’m with you. I don’t like my French toast soggy or custardy in the middle. I was watching Alton Brown make French toast and he used a thick bread. I believe it was Challah bread. Then he soaked it completely and said that a good French toast should be custardy in the middle. I personally don’t like it that way. If I use regular sliced bread, I flip it quickly so that it doesn’t soak up too much of the egg mixture. You’re making me want French toast right now. Lol!! 😄🍞
