The fact that I had a loaf of Grandma's homemade bread in the freezer made the whole thing that much better.
I'm not really a french toast connoisseur or anything but I thought it tasted pretty good. So here's what I did.
Gathered my ingredients.
- Homemade Bread
- Farm Fresh Eggs
*A pat of butter for the griddle if you like.
|Grandma's bread is the BEST!|
|Slice up the bread into whatever thickness you prefer.|
|Crack a couple eggs in a bowl and add some milk.|
|Whisk it up.|
|Pour in some vanilla. I'd say a tbsp or so. |
Depends on what you like really.
|Next add the cinnamon. I actually ended up adding extra after |
all ingredients were together because I LOVE cinnamon.
Probably a tbsp in all.
|A little nutmeg. I probably put in 1/4 tsp.|
|A tbsp of honey or so.|
|Drop in a slice of bread.|
|Dunk it to coat well|
|Toss on your hot griddle. *You can put butter on the griddle before you do this if you like.|
|Continue the process until...|
|...all your bread is on the griddle.|
Because I like my french toast extra flavorful I melted a tbsp of butter and then stirred in a tsp of cinnamon and then brushed it on the bread. Like so.
|Brush on bread. Continue cooking.|
I decided to cut mine into cute little shapes using cookie cutters.
|An Easter bunny.|
|And a couple Easter eggs.|
|Sprinkle with powdered sugar if you like and then serve with syrup, honey, fruit or whatever you want.|
