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.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 eggs
  • 18 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 18 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 14 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons milk (optional)
  • Pam cooking spray, butter flavored
  • 8 slices bread


  1. Mix eggs, nutmeg, vanilla, sugar, salt, and milk if using, together.
  2. Spray Pam, or butter, a skillet.
  3. Dip bread into egg mixture quickly to coat so it does not absorb too much egg.
  4. Put on skillet and cook until lightly brown; flip.
  5. 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.
