Recipe: French Toast

In honor of National French Toast Day…. (who thinks these things up???)... I decided to post my French Toast recipe… it’s quick.. it’s easy.. and it’s delicious!


I like to use a bread from the bakery… Challah is one I like to use most often.. or if I can find an unsliced white bread…. I like to slice it myself… nice thick slices…
For the French Toast I made today… I sliced the bread about an inch thick… who says French Toast isn’t a manly man’s breakfast?

This recipe will make 4 very large slices of French Toast.

Recipe: French Toast

All you need:

4 very thick slices of bread
3 eggs
1 cup half and half
1 tablespoon brown sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
¼ teaspoon cinnamon
Butter flavored cooking oil spray for the grill pan

All you need to do:

Place the slices of bread in a 13x 9 baking dish.

In a large bowl, whisk together the remaining ingredients.

Pour the custard mixture over the bread and allow the bread to soak for about 3 minutes. then flip them over and allow them to soak up the remaining custard.

Spray the grill pan with the cooking oil.

Heat the pan over medium high heat. Then reduce the heat to medium and place the soaked bread slices on the hot grill. You don’t want the grill pan too hot.. because you want the inside of the bread to cook while the outside browns.

Grill until golden brown then flip them over and grill the other side.

If your grill is too hot and you think the bread maybe still soggy… place them on an oven proof baking dish and bake for about 5-7 minutes at 350 degrees. (Mine did not require any additional baking… I cooked mine on a medium setting on the stove).

Serve immediately.
