MMMMM, French Toast! This is one of our favorite breakfast dishes ever. My kids would have this, waffles or pancakes every day if I would let them!
This is a simple recipe that everyone knows. But, I thought I would share how I make it. This is how my mom taught me. I tried to measure it out one day. This makes enough for 4 people and probably more as I normally have some extra egg that we end up feeding to the dog.
What you need:
- 4 lg eggs
- 1/2 cup milk
- 2tsp of vanilla- I used Nielsen Massey Vanilla Paste so feel free to use a little more vanilla
- about 2tbsp cinnamon
- approx 2tbsp nutmeg
- 8 slices of bread
Beat together eggs and milk. Add in vanilla and mix well. Use at least 2 tbsp cinnamon, and 2 tbsp nutmeg ( I normally shake the two over the egg mixture until the top is mostly covered). Mix well.
Once ingredents are mixed take one slice of bread and dip into egg mixture covering both side. Place on a preheated skillet (over a med heat) and cook on both sides until golden brown
Repeat until all pieces of bread are completed. Serve with butter and syrup, some fresh fruit or what ever your favorite topping may be and enjoy!
