In spite of having been born and raised in France, my favorite French toast recipe actually comes from Courtney Heins in Palmer, Texas. Ironic, non? We had these for breakfast this morning along with a fruit cup consisting of melon balls, sliced strawberries and kiwi.
Easy French Toast
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla
Bread (preferably “stale” or a couple of days’ old)
salt (just a sprinkle)
Combine and whip eggs, milk and vanilla; pour into shallow dish. Dip both sides of bread in mixture and place in skillet or frying pan on medium heat. Grill both sides until golden brown. Top with sprinkle of cinnamon while grilling. Add toppings when finished. Voila!
* I like to use slices from a round loaf of French bread. Also works great with challah.
* Sprinkle with powdered sugar (as in photo) for a nice presentation.
