DIRECTIONS

  • Place the almonds in a small saucepan; toss occasionally until lightly browned (about 5-8 minutes) careful not to overbrown; set aside.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, half and half or milk (if using) flour, salt, baking powder, almond extract and vanilla.
  • Soak the bread slices in the egg mixture until soaked.
  • Place in a shallow glass dish.
  • Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate the bread slices for about 1 hour.
  • Heat the oil and butter in a skillet (I do this on my large electric frypan).
  • Doing one slice at a time, press one side of the soaked bread slice into the toasted almonds to coat.
  • Fry the bread slices on both sides until golden.
  • Sprinkle with confectioners sugar if desired.
