Try this without the sugar, a touch less salt and eat with Mr Heinz's ketchup on the side for a savory treat.

Add a teaspoon of vanilla and 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon and this is how I've made it for decades. Get day-old bread on Friday for the best French toast on Sunday.

I put cocoa, vanilla, and cinnamon in mine and everyone loved it! I also found out you can use one egg per slice of bread and that using evaporated milk can make it lighter and taste better. Overall, I think it was a good recipe but, it needed more spice. 3 EGGS :)

We made this and then used the blueberry compote from your Red, White and Blueberry Pancake recipe for the topping. It was a match made in heaven! Thanks Mr. B!

I make french toast all the time myself except with wheat bread and a little bit of powdered cinnamon, nutmeg, brown sugar all mixed in the bowel along with the basic milk and egg(s).

Very good. For the bread, you really don't need to use white bread - wheat bread works great.

I tried this recipe today and it worked great. I would post a picture of the results if I could. I only made a single serving so I reduced it to a single egg and a quarter of a cup of milk. That gave me three full pieces of bread (6 halves). Thanks for whomever provided this recipe.

Sounds great however I've always used cinnamon in my French Toast. Will add some to this if a test slice tastes like it's needed.

This is a very basic recipe, not bad, just very basic. Try this for a really flavorful and easy recipe. Alter the spices to your liking. This works great for us!!

One cup buttermilk (adds great tang!)
2 or 3 large eggs
10 or 12 slices Texas toast
One tablespoon sugar
One & a half tsps good vanilla
One & a half Tsps cinnamon
One Tsp nutmeg
A dash of ground cloves
A dash of Allspice

Mix together well with a whisk and coat the bread as you cook, per the remaining cooking directions above. We make this every Sunday, hope you enjoy!

For my Editing of the recipe I did not add any sugar or cinnamon to the batter I like to sprinkle it on the bread before it hits the pan. I kept the milk the same if you use 10 pieces of bread it comes out fine. I also Used a bit more butter between each batch to keep it from browning too fast. I recommend using a pie glass baking dish for the use of battering the bread it works wonders

If you place them in the oven after the skillet, they'll have a better texture. 350 for about 10 minutes.

My fiance thought the same thing about the milk, but she went ahead anyways and put in a cup of milk and she only had 5 pieces of bread, so it was bascially as if she was making French Egg McMuffins.

Success. We added a pinch of cinnamon to the egg mixture and reduced the milk to 3/4 cup. My wife thought the milk amount would be a bit much otherwise. Judging from the results... I think she was right. Thanks for another great recipe!
