There’s nothing fancy or particularly special about this French toast. It’s one of those staple foods that nearly every household makes, but it’s also comfort food full of childhood memories. Crisp edges, melting butter and plenty of maple syrup make it a favorite. I add some vanilla and spices too. Add a cup of coffee and I could be happy with this for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- 4 eggs
- 1 cup milk
- 2 shakes of nutmeg and 3 of cinnamon or to taste
- 1/2-1 tsp. vanilla
- 8-10 slices of bread
- butter for frying
Heat a skillet or griddle. In a bowl or small casserole dish, beat the eggs with a fork. Stir in the milk, spices and vanilla. Dip the bread slices in the egg, letting them soak for just a minute. The staler the bread, the longer it can soak. Melt butter in the skillet or griddle. Place the bread slices on the griddle and cook until browned. Flip and brown the other side. Serve with maple syrup.
