The Recipe Box: French Toast

recipeboxI love French Toast. I think it’s a wonderful way to start a morning, even if it is a little bit of work. I’ve searched for a long time to find the perfect recipe, and I found two that I liked, so I combined them.

This recipe makes 3 servings.


6 slices stale bread

3 eggs

¾ cup of milk

¼ teaspoon nutmeg

½ teaspoon cinnamon

1 teaspoon vanilla.


Turn stove element to medium- low heat and let warm.

Beat eggs with a whisk. Add spices and whisk thoroughly. I add the spices to the egg first as the cinnamon and nutmeg will clump together and float to the top with milk. This way, the dry spice disperses better. You’ll still have to mix the batter each time before placing a slice of bread. Just to make sure they’re blended. Add milk.

Place bread in the mixture for five seconds on each side. Then place on the hot pan. Let cook for two minutes on each side. If making a lot, double the recipe and keep prepared toast in a warm oven.
