Chris's Old Fashioned French Toast

How many times have you heard, "Oh I make the best French toast", or "everyone always wants me to make French toast"?  The entire time you are thinking, "Yea, yea, yea, none of you have EVER had mine".  OK, well I am.  French toast has been one of my breakfast specialties for a long time. 

French toast is a lot of people's specialties.  I mean let's be honest here.  You add about anything you want for flavor and texture and all kinds of goodness.  Maybe I just use the secret correct measurements.  Think?  Yes, I am arrogant about mine, because it is mine.  If you are going to be arrogant about something at least be able to share it with others!

I make this for dinner, lunch, breakfast, brunch, after the bar closes, (jk) but you definitely could!  It is easy and seriously it is likely no secret, but I wanted to share even the easiest of recipes, because there are people out there, who have never made it.  I hope they pick my recipe to try for the first time!

This will make about 12 pieces of toast.  I use the Texas toast in a bread bag, not the frozen stuff. 

4 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1 tbsp. cinnamon
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 tbsp. butter

Whisk all ingredients very well.  Heat your griddle or skillet and melt in 1 tbsp. butter.  Dip bread into egg mixture, flipping it a couple of times and place into your skillet.  Fry on medium until golden brown and flip, frying again until golden brown.

Serve with butter, syrup, or powdered sugar.  Maybe some sweetened, whipped, heavy cream?  Oh YES!

  1. You're right... this IS the best recipe for French Toast. I know this because it's the one I've used for years :D. The G'kids love it with peanut butter 'n honey spread on it.
