Next time you want a breakfast that wows, this French toast recipe is just the thing. This is my go-to when I have relatives visiting from out of town. It’s always a hit and there is never a problem of left-overs, plus, it’s relatively easy and quick. I use a day old french baguette and can usually get around 15-ish slices per loaf. The recipe is per baguette, but if you are using multiple baguettes, you can probably get away with doubling the recipe for 3 baguettes.
Artisan French Baguette (a day old works best)
2 large Eggs
3/4 cup Milk
1 tsp Sugar
1 Tbsp Vanilla
1/4 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Cinnamon
1/4 tsp Nutmeg
1. Cut the baguette on an angle, into slices that are approx 1 – 1.5″ slices.
2. In a flat-bottomed bowl, mix all the ingredients together except the butter. Ensure that the ingredients are well blended. (When you think it’s well blended, mix it a bit more).
3. Butter a skillet, griddle or pan and heat over Medium-High heat.
4. Soak both sides of each slice of bread into the mixture. I like to allow the mixture to soak in for about a minute.
5. Cook on both sides until golden brown.
6. Optionally sprinkle powdered sugar and serve warm.
We always use real maple syrup, which makes a big difference. You can also use whipped cream or fruit topping on these morsels of amazingness.
