French Toast Default

Comments: 0


French toast is always better if your bread is a little dry—a day or two old, or leave the slices out overnight. Serve these crusty slices with bacon and warmed maple syrup, jam, or marmalade, or sprinkle them with a mixture of cinnamon and sugar.

Yield: 6 slices


  • 3 eggs, slightly beaten
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 cup milk
  • 6 slices bread


Mix the eggs, salt, sugar, and milk in a shallow dish or pie pan. Soak the bread in the mixture until soft, turning once. Cook on a hot, well-greased skillet or frying pan, turning to brown each side.
