French Toast

Sunday morning quickie – French toast is easy and almost foolproof. Add crispy bacon and you’ll be saying “What Hangover?” The French bread is better if it’s a day old. If T has made her Caesar Salad the night before, it’s the perfect way to use up the rest of the loaf we had for the croutons. Don’t forget some good Canadian maple syrup. I like a little more vanilla flavour and that’s reflected in the directions below. For the spice, substitute what you like best.  We do nutmeg or cinnamon.

French Toast
2 eggs
1 cup milk
1 tbsp vanilla extract
1 tbsp white sugar
1/4 tsp salt
6 pieces day old French bread, cut 3/4″ thick
1/8 tsp nutmeg or cinnamon
1/2 tsp vegetable oil
1 Beat eggs lightly in a shallow pan.
2 Whisk in milk & vanilla.
3 Add sugar, salt & nutmeg or cinnamon. Whisk until smooth.
4 Soak bread for approx. 30 seconds per side.  Remove &
allow excess to drip off.
5 Heat oil in a hot skillet.  Add bread and cook until 
golden brown, 45-60 seconds per side.
6 Dust with icing sugar and serve immediately with your
favorite topping.
