Everyone loves French Toast. It’s soft, sticky and sweet with a bit of crunch. It’s simple to make and only takes minutes to prepare. Plus, the ingredients are simple and most kitchens have them on hand. Perhaps these are reasons why it’s a favorite among cowboys who start their day early and need a quick yet hearty breakfast. This French toast recipe uses thick cut bread. You can use Challah bread for a bit of sweetness or a regular loaf (white or whole wheat) and cut your own thick slices. This gives the French toast more structure and makes it less probable to get soggy. The cowboys like it this way!
6-8 slices sandwich bread
3/4 cup of milk (homo or 2%)
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
butter for cooking
confectioners sugar for dusting (optional)
Whisk together the eggs, milk, sugar, vanilla and cinnamon in a shallow dish until blended.
Heat a large frying pan or skillet and melt bit of butter. Coat a slice of bread on each side and place into pan. Cook until golden on both sides (about 2-3 min on each side). Remove and repeat with the rest of the bread. Dust with confectioners sugar and serve warm with maple syrup.
