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.
Try serving French Toast with something salty – like bacon or sausage. It’s that salty/sweet combo that is oh-so-satisfying!
Total Time: 30 minutes
Yield: Serves 4-6
8 – 10 slices of bread, about ½ inch thick slices
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons maple syrup
¼ teaspoon salt
Place a baking sheet in the oven and heat oven to 200°F.
In a shallow dish, whisk together eggs, milk, maple syrup, cinnamon, and salt until well blended.
Melt 1 tablespoon of butter in nonstick frying pan over medium-low heat.
Dip 2 slices of bread into the egg mixture, turning each slice a few times until well soaked, but not falling apart. Add to frying pan and cook until golden brown, about 3 minutes. Flip and continue to cook until the second side is golden. Transfer to baking sheet in oven. Repeat with remaining bread.
