Dad & Mom's French Toast

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by MsLizze

This is my dad & mom's french toast recipe. Mom contributed the vanilla and Dad contributed the cinnamon. =) This is best with a thick bread like challah or french bread, but sandwich bread will work too.

This was totally delicious, MistyCat82. I really enjoyed it. The cinnamon and vanilla were the perfect amount, but I found that 3 eggs were plenty for the egg mixture (4 eggs would have been too many). For the bread, I used thick Texas Toast and it was a good choice. Thanks for sharing your recipe. Made for the Spring 2014 Pick-A-Chef event.

  1. Combine all of the ingredients except the bread and blend well.
  2. Melt a pat of butter on the griddle for each slice of bread.
  3. Soak the bread in the egg mixture.
  4. Place a slice of soaked bread on top of a melted butter pat, and cook on low for 15 minutes.
  5. While cooking, sprinkle each slice with more cinnamon if desired.
  6. When almost done, place another pat of butter on top of each slice so it starts melting.
  7. When done cooking, flip the toast over and brown on the other side.
