The Perfect French Toast

Tuesday, June 22, 2010

Everyone loves french toast right? At least thats how I feel. When ever I go out to brunch or breakfast I have to convince myself to try something new instead of sticking with my old favorite. 
But have ever made it at home and wondered why it doesn't turn out the way it does at the restaurants?  
Well Im going to show you how! 

First off what you will need.

  1. 6 slices of bread ( day old texas toast or baguette is the best for this recipe)
  2. 2 large eggs
  3. 1/2 cup milk
  4. ground cinnamon
  5. nutmeg or allspice
  6. vanilla extract
  7. butter
Alright, Lets get started. 

Start by preheating your oven to 400  (theres the first trick so many people neglect when making french toast!) 
Next combine the eggs, milk, vanilla, and spices (Just a dash of each spice about a tsp of vanilla)

After Mixture has been thoroughly mixed add bread to the mixture and allow all pieces to be coated on both sides.  While allowing the bread to absorb all of the mixture heat your skillet or griddle to medium heat and melt some butter (enough to cover the entire surface). 

Place the batter soaked bread into your skillet and and allow to brown on both sides. 

Once both sides have been browned place bread on a baking sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes. When the bread is done cooking it will be a fluffy golden brown. 

Serve with syrup and/or powdered sugar.
