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)
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!
