French Toast is a great way to use up day old bread and a great way to feed a bunch of hungry mouths when you’re low on eggs.
Cinnamon is a must in this simple French Toast recipe! Most recipes will use sugar in the egg mixture to add a little sweetness, but I’m using maple syrup because it doesn’t need time to dissolve like sugar does.
French Toast Tips:
- Keep an eye on the heat. Lower it if the bread it cooking too quickly.
- Serve with maple syrup and butter, jam, or fresh fruit.
- Wipe out the frying pan if the butter starts to burn and add fresh butter.
- You can use a French or Italian loaf, good quality white bread, challah, brioche, even croissants work perfectly! Regardless of what bread you use, it’s always best to use day-old.
