French Toast

This recipe is one of my husband's favorites. He only gets it 2 times a year...Father's Day and his birthday! So he got it today as it is Father's Day! Let's be honest's not good for you but it tastes absolutely amazing! I am a health freak who constantly eats well, but you have to enjoy life's simple pleasures every once in awhile :) I am a believer in a cheat meal!!

I'm claiming this recipe as my own, only because I have altered it so much. It originally came from Better Homes and Garden...but my version is better (sorry, Better Homes).

This is not gluten free; however, I have made this with gluten free bread and it tastes pretty feel free to sub out your bread if you are gluten free.

  • 4 beaten eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 2 Tablespoons butter
  • Maple Syrup
  • 8 slices Texas Toast
  • Pre-heat over to 350.
  • In a small and shallow bowl, beat together eggs, milk, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg.
  • Cut your slices of Texas Toast so you have 3 columns.

  • Dip bread slices quickly on both sides. You want to ensure both sides are covered, but not soaked.

  • In a skillet, melt your 2 tablespoons of butter over medium heat.
  • Add half the bread slices and cook until the first side is lightly browned.
  • Turn over and cook until the other side is browned.
  • Repeat with remaining bread slices.

  • Once all the bread slices are browned, place them on a cookie sheet and place in the oven for 10 minutes. The goal is to get these slightly crispy. This is what makes this recipe so good!
  • Remove and add butter and syrup.
