Our French Toast Recipe
My husband loves to cook breakfast. (Reason #4892 why he's so perfect for me!). My favorite thing he makes is his French Toast. With it being Friday, I thought some of you might be interested in trying this recipe out over the weekend. I promise, you will NOT be dissapointed.
*1 cup half and half
*3 large eggs
*2 TB honey, warmed in microwave for 20 seconds
*1/4 tsp salt
*8 slices day-old or stale italian bread (we buy a fresh loaf but we slice it and leave it out overnight so it gets good and stale. Sounds strange, but necessary for this recipe!) Also- cut it thick- at least 3/4 inch each slice.
*4 TB butter
*sprinkle of cinamin
1- In medium bowl, whisk together the half and half, eggs, honey and salt. (We do this the night before so that there's less work to do in the morning). After mixed, pour this into a pie pan and set aside.
2- Preheat over to 375 degrees. Dip bread into mixture and allow to soak for 30 seconds on each side. Then remove to a cooling rack set inside a sheet pan, and allow it to sit for 1 to 2 minutes (this lets the excess custard drip off).
3- Over medium-high heat, melt 1 TB butter in a 10 inch non-stick skillet. Place 2 slices of bread and cook until golden brown, approximately 2 to 3 minutes per side. Remove from pan and place on rack in the oven for 5 minutes. Repeat with all 8 slices.
Marcus likes to eat his with maple syrup, but me and the kids love ours with Whipped Cream.
Hope you love it as much as we do!
