French Toast

When hungry for something a little special this is what breadfasters hope for. Plump slices of bread soaked in a rich bath of eggs and cream and sauteed to a honey-brown crispness. I like to use texas toast to make this recipe.

Whisk together in a shallow bowl:

2/3 cup milk, cream or half and half
4 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon salt
Any mixture of spice such as cinnamon, allspice, ginger, etc.

One or two at a time add;

6 slices of white or egg bread

Turn the slices in the egg mixture until it soaks mixture but not falling apart.

Heat 2 tablespoons butter or spray with oil

Add as many slice of bread to the skillet as will fit without crowing and cook until the underside is golden brown. Serve immediately to keep warm in a 200 degree F. oven while you finish the rest.

If desired dust with powdered sugar

Serve with:

Butter, Maple syrup
Ham, sausage or bacon, if desired
