French Toast

We love French Toast. It is easy to make, tastes good and very versatile. You can use any kind of bread you want and you can top it will all sorts of good things. If you want to live on the wild side you can top it with things are aren’t necessarily good for you, but that taste good!

I made some of this yesterday so that we would have it for breakfast today. I am a big fan of not having to cook on the weekends. I try to cook whatever I can on Friday so that we can have it throughout the weekend.

I make a large batch of this when I make it because you can put it in Zip-lock bags and store in the refrigerator for a few days and just heat up what you want a little at a time. You can easily cut this recipe in half for a smaller amount or double it for a large crowd. This also freezes easily and makes a great alternative to prepackaged, frozen breakfast foods.

French Toast

  • 8 eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk (or heavy cream if you want to live dangerously)
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 16 pieces of bread, whatever kind you fancy
  • butter
  • Optional Toppings: Fresh or dried fruit, chopped nuts, whipped cream, syrup

Crack your eggs into a medium size bowl and add milk, cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla. Whisk everything until thoroughly combined. You can use a skillet over medium heat, but I prefer to use my electric grill on 400 degrees for this, because I can cook 8 pieces at a time and it goes faster.

Whatever you use to cook, make sure you generously butter the pan once it is hot. This will give your French Toast a nice buttery crispy outside coating.

Next, pour about half of your egg mixture into a shallow bowl. You are going to dip each piece of bread into it, making sure to coat both sides well. Shake the excess off then place on the pan to cook. Continue with each piece of bread.

Your going to cook each piece about 3-4 minutes per side. You will have to watch them so they don’t burn, cooking times will vary according to how hot your pan is. You just want to make sure the eggs are cooked and you have a nice color and crispy outside.

Once they are cooked you can top them with whatever you want to. We like to experiment around here. Today we used slices of bananas and chopped walnuts with syrup. Normally I would have put a little caramel and whipped cream with these toppings, but we were out!

Enjoy!

    I’ve used these ingredients to make FB and I Love Love it. I like your idea of being creative with the toppings. We’re making breakfast for a family of 3 tomorrow morning including a 5 year old. I’ll bet he’d enjoy some of this along with his mom & dad. I think I’m going to enjoy your website. Makes me hungry!
