French toast is one of my all time favorite breakfast foods. We usually save it for weekends and really don't have it that often; but, oh, so good. :D
This picture was Husband's weekend breakfast. It was made with cinnamon swirl raisin bread. Which is awesome for French toast; or so I am told. I am not a fan of raisins so I opted to use my multi-grain loaf of sandwich bread. It made some delicious French toast in it's own right.
We usually have bacon or sausage with French toast; bacon is my personal favorite. An added benefit is using a bit of resulting bacon grease to fry the toast. Yummy!
3/4 cup milk
1/2 tsp cinnamon
splash of vanilla
4-6 slices of bread
Oil or bacon grease
Heat oil or grease in a non-stick skillet over medium heat. Whisk egg and milk in a shallow bowl large enough to dip the bread. Add cinnamon and vanilla and mix again.
Dip bread in egg/milk mixture. Turn the bread over and make sure the bread has been completely submerged in the mixture. Transfer to skillet and fry until golden on both sides; about 3-5 minutes per side depending on the thickness of the bread. Repeat with remaining bread. If you are using regular sandwich bread you should get six slices, if using thick slices, such as the raisin bread or French bread this mixture will be enough for about four.
