Grandpa's French Toast

Recipe by Jennifer Lewis
READY IN: 18mins




  • On the stovetop, turn on to medium heat and use a griddle.
  • In a bowl big enough to dunk your bread, add the 3 egg yolks and 1 whole egg and 1/4 cup of milk and with a fork, stir these ingredients.
  • Add the vanilla and cinnamon.
  • When the griddle gets warm, quickly, put in your slices of bread in the mixture, both sides.
  • If you let it soak, the bread will fall apart.
  • Wait until the bread is a golden brown and flip to cook the other side.
  • Serve with butter and maple sryup or for a little less fat, sprinkle with powered sugar and add some strawberries.
  • I have cooked this alot in my life, and after trial and error, I have decided that if you add 4 whole eggs, you are just cooking eggs on a slice of bread, but you need something to keep everything together, so you need a little something like the egg whites to do that.
  • See what you think.
