I have made french toast for years. My mother in law called me one day and said she got some bread on sale and she had 2 loaves for me. It did not last long! We all love this bread. When I tried it for my french toast I knew I wouldn't use any other bread. These ingredient's are not exact. Play around with this recipe and make it your own!! Any bread can be used. A nice thick bread is preferable.

Ingredients

6ish slice
italian bread i use rotella's italian twist
4 -5
eggs
2 Tbsp
goodman's vanilla
3 dash(es)
cinnamon, ground
1/3 c
milk(i prefer whole milk skim will work)
1 dash(es)
powdered sugar

Directions Step-By-Step

1
I like to leave my bread out for a while and let it dry out some. ( I learned this from watching Alton Brown's cooking show) He suggests over night but sure as I do that something with come up and I will waste my bread.
2
When your bread is ready ( you can use it right out of the package in a pinch) Mix the eggs,milk,cinnamon, and vanilla in a shallow dish. A small square casserole dish is what I use.
3
dip the bread in the egg mixture. Make sure your griddle is hot with just a smidge of butter for "grease" make sure your bread is covered in mixture
4
Place your bread on your griddle and flip pretty soon after you let it sizzle. despite the butter mine usually sticks just a bit. Flipping soon seems to prevent this. Could be because of the egg I have no idea.
5
make sure it cooks to brown on each side, you may have some actual egg with your french toast! Don't be alarmed it tastes good with syrup too!
6
I like to have a oven ready on warm if your making it in a skillet so you can serve it all at once and it's all still warm.
7
Our preference for eating is warmed up syrup a pat of real butter and some powdered sugar. ENJOY!
