Life Lessons and Recipes - F is for French Toast

Recently I discovered the BEST, LARGE French bread at Whole Foods. I had to have it! I ate on that bread all week and at the end of the week I decided what better thing to do with the last little bit of the French bread than to make French Toast!

Life Lesson: Don't let any of the good bread go to waste!

As I've said before, I love bread and I love breakfast. This recipe allows me to mix those two things together and I must say, it is quite delicious!

Comfort Food:

Fancy French Toast

Prep: Turn the fire on under the griddle about medium to medium low heat. Rub a little grape seed oil onto the griddle with a paper towel.

Slice thick 2 to 4 pieces of French bread (about 1/2 to one inch thick) and set aside.

In a large bowl (with a big enough bottom for your bread to fit in) add one raw egg out of the shell.
a splash or so of buttermilk (about 1/4 cup)
1/2 teaspoon or so of vanilla
tablespoon or so of sugar
1/2 teaspoon of of cinnamon

Mix well until the egg is all creamy.

Dip one piece of bread on both sides (quickly you don't want the bread to soak up too much of it, you just want it covered) and then place on griddle. Let sit for 2 to 3 minutes, until lightly brown and then turn over. Cook about 2 to 3 minutes on the other side until lightly brown. Do this with all pieces and place on a plate. Add a slice of butter on each piece, sprinkle with powdered sugar and cinnamon and enjoy!

Do you have a special way that you make French Toast?
