So over the Holiday weekend we had breakfast on Easter Sunday. I made some good old fashion French Toast. It turned out great and I just wanted to share. I know most people know how to make French toast but for those of you who don’t here is what I do.
I like to use a nice thick cut bread. For this time I used the brioche, a wonderfully eggy bread. This loaf I got at Aldi and it was perfect. This made 6 servings of 2 pieces each. With this loaf that meant I only had the heels left over.
So I used 4 farm fresh eggs, added milk, vanilla, sugar, and cinnamon. Mix really well. Now I mix all of this is a shallow dish, normally a 7×11 pan. Dunk both sides in the egg mixture and set aside.
Now when I make french toast I let the bread sit before putting it on the electric skillet. That way the center has a good long time to get soft. So while the bread is sitting preheat electric skillet to 325°F. Cook for a couple of minutes on the first side until golden brown and flip. Then cook second side until golden. 3-5 minutes on each side. Serve warm and Enjoy!
