Perfect French Toast

Have you ever had a breakfast soooooo perfect that you had to tell people about it?

This would be it, for me.

A nice high stack of perfectly-grilled French toast!

  • 5 eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • butter for grill or pan
  • crusty, dry, somewhat stale bread
  1. Whisk together eggs, milk, and vanilla until completely combined.
  2. Put the mixture on a rimmed baking sheet, and lay your pieces of bread in the mixture.  Wait a few minutes, then flip the bread.
  3. Leave the bread soaking until the mixture is completely absorbed.
  4. Melt your butter in your skillet or grill.  Put the soaked bread onto the hot surface, cooking for a minute or two until browned on that side.  Flip and continue browning until all egg mixture has been cooked.
  5. Remove, and serve as desired.

I always ad a sprinkle of cinnamon to mine, then douse in syrup and butter.  Cause, as I’ve mentioned, I’m a baby hippo.

This was the inaugural project for the griddle my mom god David for Christmas.  A success, I’d say!

My favorite breakfast is French toast.  I’ve been trying to “lighten” it up a bit in the past few weeks by eating omelets and such on the weekends.  But I must say.  My sweet tooth does not have an end when it comes to weekend brunch.

One of the best French toast breakfasts I’ve ever had was at Maxwell’s, a great, seedy cafe in my neighborhood, about a mile west.  You know what it was?

French toast with peanut butter and chocolate chips.  Heaven on a plate!

What’s your favorite brunch?
