french toast

Oct 10, 2010 by


french toast is a very simple breakfast dish to make.  i’ve been making it for a very long time and was kind of surprised to find that i hadn’t blogged about it yet!

(for 8 slices of french toast, multiply as needed)

  • 8 slices of bread (tom prefers good old fashioned white, i prefer brioche)
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 – 1 1/4 c dairy products (milk, half & half, whipping cream*)
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • cinnamon, to taste
  1. preheat a griddle to med-low heat.
  2. in a medium bowl, whisk 3 eggs.
  3. add dairy products (i prefer to use 1/2 c half and half, 3/4 c milk.  i used 1/2 c whipping cream, 3/4 c milk today and it turned out great, too!)  whisk together with the eggs.
  4. add sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon.  whisk until mixed well.
  5. place 1/2 tbsp of butter on the griddle.  (add even if you’re using a non-stick griddle, it helps give the french toast a golden color and crisp finish.)
  6. dip a slice of bread into the egg mixture and place on griddle.  repeat until your griddle is full.  allow to brown on one side and flip.  brown on the other side and move to dish.  try to only flip each slice once, because it can become mushy if you flip it more than once.
  7. top with whatever you wish.

enjoy!
