DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 300°; butter the baking sheet.
  • In a shallow dish, whisk the eggs, milk, cream, whiskey, sugar, vanilla, and salt together.
  • Dunk the bread slices into the egg mixture and soak them for at least 10 minutes, turning if needed to coat evenly, until saturated but short of falling apart.
  • Warm 1 tablespoon butter and 1 tablespoon oil together on a griddle or in a large skillet over medium heat.
  • Briefly cook the French toast in batches until golden brown and lightly crisp, turning once.
  • Put the first slices on the baking sheet and keep them warm in the oven.
  • Continue cooking the remaining slices, adding more butter and oil as needed.
  • When all the French toast is ready, dust with powdered sugar.
  • Serve immediately with berries and maple syrup, if desired.
