Mom’s French Toast

My go-to Saturday morning breakfast is buttermilk pancakes, but today I was craving something different. Eggs, waffles, a smoothie… nothing fancied my taste buds. Jeremy loves French toast, and although I’m not really a “bread” person I called my mom for suggestions.

I quickly scratched down her favorite French toast recipe.
For 12 pieces of French toast whisk together the following ingredients:
1 /4 cup flour
1 cup milk
a couple shakes of salt
3 eggs
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla
1 tbs sugar
12 pieces Nature’s Own Honey Wheat bread

I whisked the ingredients together in a large cake pan. Since my griddle is still packed (somewhere) I used a grill pan on the stove to cook the bread. Dip both sides of the bread into the mixture and place onto the pan or griddle on medium-high.

Cook both sides of the bread until they’re golden brown. Add toppings of your choice: bananas, powdered sugar, syrup, strawberries, etc. I attempted to use the grill marks on the pan as a cool presentation effect for the bread.

Final product:
Since there was just two of us for breakfast, I cut the recipe in half (using 2 eggs) and it was fantastic! For once I actually liked French toast! Thanks, Mom!

    Making my mouth water, Jenni. Sure looks good!! You’re learning from a pro————-who also learned it from a pro. However, that is your mom’s recipe, not mine, so looks like you got a good one.
