I think this must come from the Union Pacific Railroad. My cousin Maxine gave me the recipe millions of years ago, Well. she's a million years old, I am just a thousand years old. LOL We both are from when traveling by train was the way most families traveled across the USA. I wish everyone could see how beautiful this country is. There are things one gets to see that can only be seen by train, hiking, or by pack animals. The old wood trellises the trains crossed were not only amazing, but gorgeous. Although I will admit the desert is a tad boring at times unless you know what to look for.

How to Make Train Dining Car French Toast

Step-by-Step

  • 1Use firm homemade or french bread (day old). Trim crusts and cut bread diagonally into triangles.
  • 2Combine eggs, half/half, and salt. Beat slightly.
  • 3Dip bread into egg mixture, allowing bread pieces to absorb as much liquid as possible. (Use a spatula to remove bread from liquid)
  • 4Heat about 1/2 inch of oil to 325* Fry the bread in the 1/2 inch of oil until brown on one side then turn to brown the other side.
  • 5Puff the bread in the oven, preheated to 400*, for 3 to 5 minutes.
  • 6Drain on a paper brown paper bags (you can use paper towels) to absord excess fat.
  • 7Sprinkle with powdered sugar and butter. Or Jam, Jelly, Preserves, Syrup, Honey, apple sauce, or.....


    Note I like adding a tad of pure vanilla extract to the egg mixture. Maxine likes adding cinnamon,
  • 8Did a little research on the recipe. Found out it is the original Santa Fe Dining Car recipe... :)

    I loved eating in the Dining cars...they seemed to have the best food. My favorite dinner was Roast Turkey...
