Making French Toast is easier than you think. It’s made by dipping thick-cut bread in a simple custard base and pan-frying it.
Making French toast is basically taking milk and/or cream, a few eggs, and some flavoring. Combine them well and soak thick slices of bread – preferably French bread – in the mixture and then cook in a skillet. (Non-stick skillets are the way to go!)
- French bread, cut into 1-inch slices
- 3 eggs
- 1½ cups of half-and-half
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 1 - 2 teaspoons cinnamon
- dash of nutmeg
- powdered sugar for dusting
- Preheat griddle. (400 degrees works well.)
- Combine eggs, half-and-half, vanilla, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a large bowl.
- Dip slices of bread into liquid mixture. Remove and allow excess liquid to drain.
- Lightly spray griddle with non-stick spray or lightly coat with oil.
- Place prepared bread slice on griddle and cook until golden brown.
- Flip bread and repeat on other side.
- Remove from heat and sprinkle with powdered sugar if desired.
- Top with your favorite toppings.

For a dessert option, a drizzle of chocolate sauce is nice.
French toast can even be served topped with a scoop of ice cream, then drizzled with chocolate sauce, and topped with a cherry or strawberry.
