French Toast

My family loves to eat breakfast together on the weekends and french toast is a favorite. This is a simply delicious french toast recipe that I have used for years. Today I actually measured the ingredients so you can make it just like me! You can use Texas bread if you like big slices, french bread, white bread, gluten free bread, pick your favorite bread or my favorite is to choose the bread that is the least fresh, rather than throwing it away.
Ingredients for 6 pieces of french toast:
2 eggs
1/2 c milk
6 slices of bread
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp cinnamon
a pinch of sugar
I mix all of the ingredients on a dinner plate (because that's how Mom did it). With a fork, whisk the eggs until they look slightly scrambled, add the rest of the ingredients and whisk together.
I use my electric lefse griddle and heat it to 325F. Dip one side of the bread into the egg mixture, turn it over and coat the other side of the bread. Place it on the griddle for about 3-4 minutes per side. You'll know it's done when the bread looks like the picture on the top.
I heat my homemade syrup, Simply Homemade Maple Syrup and serve it on the side. This syrup is great and you will save so much money using it rather than buying real maple syrup. Not even the kids can tell the difference!
Enjoy your breakfast or make french toast for any meal - it's delicious!
Love and peace,
