***French toast is certainly one of those classic breakfast dishes that is always tasty. Believe it or not, I've never, ever made French toast until just recently. I'm not sure why...It's something I've been wanting to make for a while now, so I started off with an easy recipe from The Taste of Home Cookbook last weekend.
This recipe is so incredibly easy to make. Just mix together all of the ingredients in a bowl, dip in the French bread, and throw it onto a buttered skillet...Voila!
I made a classic mistake though...A few slices of my bread soaked for too long and got a little soggy. Trust me, you don't want soggy French toast! So, just use caution when dipping the bread into the egg mixture.
Also, make sure your skillet is nice and buttered. If not, the toast will stick and you'll end up with an egg-y mess!
Powdered sugar, warm maple syrup, and your choice of fresh fruit all make wonderful toppings for this dish. Paula Deen even has a recipe for French Toast stuffed with bananas and walnuts...so, feel free to go crazy with your favorites! I'm definitely going to be giving Paula's recipe a try soon too!
This recipe is just scrumptious! Bon Appetit!***
Recipe adapted from The Taste of Home Cookbook; New Revised Edition
1 cup milk
2 tablespoons sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
8 slices day-old French bread (1 inch thick)
In a bowl, beat eggs. Beat in the milk, sugar, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg.
Soak the slices of bread for a few seconds on each side (don't let the bread get soggy!).
Cook on a hot greased griddle until golden brown on both sides and cooked through.
Sprinkle with powdered sugar and drizzle with warm maple syrup. Fresh fruit also makes a great addition!
