This is how my family makes French toast. This was from my Grandma; she learned it from the place she worked at. You can use regular white bread or cut French bread on the diagonal about 1/2 inch thick. The day old bread at WalMart works great. I am going to bow to the pressure of adding milk to this. My family likes it without but if your family likes it with you can certainly add it.
- 4 eggs
- 1⁄8 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1⁄8 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 3 tablespoons milk (optional)
- Pam cooking spray, butter flavored
- 8 slices bread
- Mix eggs, nutmeg, vanilla, sugar, salt, and milk if using, together.
- Spray Pam, or butter, a skillet.
- Dip bread into egg mixture quickly to coat so it does not absorb too much egg.
- Put on skillet and cook until lightly brown; flip.
- Brown on other side.
This is a great basic recipe. It was a bit too thick so I added milk to it. It was perfect to soak the bread. I used slices of baguette. Thanks Dienia :) Made for PRMR tag game
My kids like French toast and this was no exception. It was super easy and exactly the right amount of egg mixture for 8 slices of whole wheat bread. It was a bit dry though - I usually add milk and let the bread soak it up for a bit. I would also add a bit more vanilla - you can never get enough! Made for Went To The Market tag game. Thanks Dee! :)
Yep this is just like grandma used to make, I even topped with powdered sugar the way grandma used to. I made as written and not only enjoyed every bite but also enjoyed sharing stories of grandma with family that never got to know her. Thanks for the post and memories.
