Foodie Friday: Classic French Toast.

This past weekend we had out little (4-year-old) niece over for a play day and sleepover! For dinner, I thought it would be fun to have something sweet, and as I had found an amazing loaf of homemade Challah at market, decided upon French Toast. I have never been a big fan of eggs (weird, I know!), so really “eggy”, dry french toast has never really been appealing to me. As a result, I tweaked the basic milk and eggs recipe with some sweetening, spices and fun toppings. Since she (and my husband!) asked for seconds I feel like it was a success. :)

Have fun and enjoy! xo

Classic French Toast

Ingredients:

1/2 loaf of good quality challah bread (I have seen others use stale french baguette, brioche, etc.!), cut into 1-inch slices

1.5 cups whole milk

1 pinch of salt

1 tbsp. brown sugar

1.5 tsp. vanilla extract

4 eggs

Generous 1/2 tsp. cinnamon

Generous 1/2 tsp. nutmeg

Directions:

1. Whisk together milk, eggs, sugar, salt, vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg.

2. Heat a griddle or frying pan over medium heat, melt butter in/on to coat.

3. Meanwhile, saturate bread in milk mixture.

4. Cook bread on each side, until golden brown. Usually 2-3 minutes per side.

5. Serve warm with butter, lots of real maple syrup and fresh fruit (I used raspberries, bananas and white nectarines…what I had on hand! :))

6. Enjoy! :)
