One of my favorite things to eat for breakfast on any given weekend is French Toast. It’s been a family favorite at my house for years. So whenever my kids are home for a visit, or I have overnight guests, I’ll usually make this special treat.
This morning, I decided to make this delicious breakfast ~ just for me. I adapted my recipe to serve one, and pulled my griddle out of the cupboard. The great thing about French Toast is that it’s fairly easy to make, and takes only a few ingredients:
Deb’s French Toast
Pre-heat frying pan or griddle on medium high heat.
5 whole eggs
1/2 cup of Milk
1/2 teaspoon of Vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon of ground Cinnamon
8-10 slices of french bread (or other bread of your choice)
Canola or Vegetable oil
Whisk eggs, milk, vanilla and cinnamon together in a medium-sized bowl.
Drizzle oil on pre-heated frying pan/griddle, and give it some time to heat up.
Dip slices of french bread into the batter, one at a time, letting each slice soak for 10 seconds on each side.
Immediately place battered bread on oiled and pre-heated griddle (pan must be hot); continue with each slice of bread until your pan is full. Cook until golden brown, and turn over to cook the other side. I usually sprinkle some additional cinnamon on the toast before turning them over.
Place French Toast on plate and sprinkle with powdered sugar. Serve with butter and syrup.
