On Sunday, I made French toast for breakfast! It was “mmm, mmm good”! I never used to be able to make French toast. It would always turn out really “eggy”. I felt like I was eating scrambled eggs with syrup! Yuk! But then I found this recipe and it comes out perfect every time! HA! I know, you’re probably thinking who needs a recipe for French toast! Well I did…lol! And I found the perfect one thanks to Alton Brown! So if you’re “French toast inept” like I once was, there is hope! Check out this recipe.
- Loaf of sourdough bread
- 3 large eggs
- 1 cup half and half
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 T honey (orange blossom)
The night before –
- Cut sourdough bread into slices and set on oven rack to dry out.
- For batter, mix 3 large eggs, 1 cup of half and half , 1 tsp of salt, and a T of honey (orange blossom). Whisk until smooth. Put in a container and place in fridge.
The day of –
- Heat oven to 375 degrees
- Soak bread on each side for 30 seconds.
- In a skillet, melt 1 T butter over medium-low heat. Use a pat of butter for each batch. (I don’t use this much butter, I just coat the pan with a thin layer)
- Add 2 pieces to the pan and cook for 2-3 min on each side.
- When finish put French toast in the oven directly on the rack (place pan underneath to catch butter drippings) and bake for 5 min.
