French Toast


Sundays have always been a breakfast date with Charlie and I.  Whether we get some bagels at Einsteins or I cook at home, it’s our time to have some delicious breakfast and catch up on the two of us.

This past Sunday, Charlie requested french toast and bacon.  I have my usual recipe of french toast, but thought I would try the Joy of Cooking version!  It was absolutely delicious, but very sweet – it suggests to use maple syrup instead of sugar which I thought I’d try.  I would probably suggest to use 2 Tbsp sugar instead.

This is a very easy, delicious recipe for a weekend morning breakfast!  Hope you decide to try!

YIELD: 10 slices french toast

TIME: 30 minutes

2/3 cup whole milk, heavy cream, or half-and-half (I used half-and-half)
4 eggs
2 Tbsp sugar or maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp salt
6 or more slices white bread
2 Tbsp butter
powdered sugar, for dusting

Whisk half-and-half, eggs, maple syrup, vanilla, and salt.  Melt butter over medium heat in a skillet and dip slices of bread in egg mixture.  Cook bread in skillet until underside is golden brown on both sides.  Keep warm in a 200 F oven while you finish cooking remaining slices.  Serve on plates with dusted powdered sugar and maple syrup, if desired.

Hope y’all enjoy!

xoxo, Sara
