Tasty Tuesday – Classic French Toast

Confession: I often need to look up “classic” recipes…. mashed potatoes, guacamole, french toast, etc. Here is a good, basic french toast recipe. It’s perfect for a Lazy Saturday morning…. due to carbs wrecking havoc on me, I rarely make a nice big breakfast, with the key players being (YUM) pancakes, french toast or waffles. But every once in a while it’s makes a wonderful morning event. And my husband loves french toast, so that makes it even better:) I put my changes in parentheses. Note – I prefer MUCH more cinnamon and sugar – – but you probably should to:)

Classic French Toast

Slightly Adapted From Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook

  • 4 beaten eggs (you could do part egg white too)
  • 1 c. milk (or half fat free half and half for a creamier texture)
  • 2-3 T. Sugar
  • 1 T. vanilla
  • 2 t. ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 t. ground nutmeg (you could also add pumpkin pie spice or other yumminess – although I have a delicious pumpkin pancake recipe I’ll make in the fall!)
  • 6-8 slices challah bread or day old homemade bread machine bread:)
  • 2 T. butter

  1. Beat together mixture in a shallow bowl or pie pan.
  2. Dip bread slices in, coating both sides and letting egg mixture soak about 10 seconds each side if the bread is thick.
  3. Melt 1 T butter over medium heat, cook bread slices 2-3 minutes on each side or until the bread is done and golden brown. Repeat. Serve warm with syrup.

  1. I had actually been thinking about making french toast and then your post came into my email so I was sold! I made this yesterday morning and saved the leftovers for today. I just put the slices in the toaster to reheat and they were delish :) Thanks for a yummy breakfast treat!
