Chocolate French Toast

(6 servings)

  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 12 slices white bread (day-old bread works best)
  • 3 (1.5 ounce) bars chocolate candy bars - halved
  • 2 Tablespoons butter or margarine
  • confectioners sugar (optional)
In a mixing bowl, beat the eggs with the milk, sugar, vanilla and salt.

Pour half of this mixture into an ungreased 13" x 9" (or similar) baking dish.

Place six slices of bread flat in a single layer over egg mixture.

Place one piece of chocolate in the center of each piece of bread.

Top with remaining bread.

Pour the rest of the egg mixture over all. Let stand for 5 minutes.

In a large skillet, melt the butter over medium heat.

Place the prepared sandwiches in the skillet and fry until golden brown on both sides.

Dust each serving with confectioners sugar if desired.

For those weekend mornings when you ditch the diet for a special breakfast treat.
