My Father's French Toast

My father used to fix breakfast on Saturday mornings. It usually included bacon or sausage, or sometimes ham with red-eye gravy. We always loved it when he made French Toast, and we would sit there and eat it as long as he would make it - clear up until lunch time! This was his mother's way of using up slightly stale bread, but we even use fresh bread and get great results.
