The results were absolutely fabulous! I just dipped my hubby's toast in the egg mixture to make sure his wasn't soggy in the middle, but I soaked mine a little longer to get the flavor throughout. I think we were both quite pleased with the end result. I have to say though that the fresh French bread definitely made a difference. The slices were so thick and the bread soaked up the mixture like a sponge. YUM! If you are a French toast fan then you definitely need to try making it with French bread!
Here's the recipe:
From Allrecipes (2 servings)
4 thick slices bread
1/4 cup and 3 tablespoons milk
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon (optional)
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg (optional)
3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)
salt to taste
Beat together egg, milk, salt, desired spices and vanilla.
Heat a lightly oiled griddle of skillet over medium-high flame.
Dunk each slice of bread in egg mixture, soaking both sides. Place in pan, and cook on both sides until golden. Serve hot. I spread some butter on each slice and of course smothered it in maple syrup!
