Saturday Morning French Toast

I really do like French Toast, but I will admit it.... I am a bit of a French Toast snob.  I am so fussy about how it is prepared, more fussy than with almost any other food.  When we go out to our local diner for breakfast, and my boyfriend orders the French Toast, I just shake my head in disappointment.  I bite my tongue though, I don't need everyone else to know that I am such a snob.  My boyfriend knows this fact, accepts it, and still loves me despite it.  

I have been making French Toast this way for years now.  I absolutely can not have it made from sliced sandwich bread.  Please don't hate me for this, it's just how I am!  Anytime we have leftover crusty bread, I throw it in the freezer to have waiting for a yummy breakfast destiny. French and Italian bread's are what I have used.  I would love to try it with a Ciabatta bread, but haven't accomplished that yet.

It's not an exact recipe as the milk and eggs needed can vary on they exact bread you use.  Please give it shot, it won't disappoint you!!!

French Toast

4 slices day old crusty bread (about 1 to 1 1/2 inch thick)
3 Eggs
1/2 c. Milk
1 T. Flour
1/4 t. Cinnamon
1/2 T. Oil

Maple Syrup
Powdered Sugar

Preheat skillet over medium high heat. In shallow bowl, combine  eggs and milk.  Add flour and cinnamon. Whisk all together until it is smooth and you have no flour lumps.  Add slices of bread to bowl, let soak for about 1 minute on each side.

Add oil to pan and let heat for one minute.  Add 2-3 slices of bread to pan.  Cook for 3-4 minutes per side, or until golden brown. 

(Note: If your bread really soaks up the mixture, just add more egg and milk)


  1. I love French Toast and I agree it's better with French or Italian style bread!

  2. I love French Toast too and would never omit a splash of vanilla extract though.
