A couple of years ago my Dad stumbled upon a French Toast recipe somewhere that has become quite a favorite for our family over the years. It is one of those breakfasts that we make just about every time we are home in NJ for a special event... Mother's Day, Father's Day, Mom's Birthday, Dad's Birthday, etc. It has become such a breakfast staple that I decided to make it for brunch for friends this past Sunday and let's just say that it went over pretty well with them! I think the secret may be in the bread, but whatever it is, it is just soooooo good!
Of course I took no pictures of the actual process this time because I was so focused on getting ready for brunch, but at least I have pictures of what the finished product looks like!
Dad's French Toast
1 loaf Challah bread
1 1/3 c. milk
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
2 tsp. vanilla
1 container of strawberries (optional)
1/2 c. sugar (optional)
Powdered Sugar (optional)
1. Slice loaf of bread
2. Slice strawberries and put in a bowl with 1/2 c. sugar (to use an an optional garnish for your french toast... or sometimes we soak the strawberries in Grand Marnier to make them extra delicious)
3. Beat together eggs, milk, cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla
4. Heat a medium sized, lightly oiled pan over medium-high heat
5. Dip the slices of bread in the egg mixture, be sure to coat both sides of the bread.
6. Place in pan and cook until golden brown on each side.
7. Sprinkle with powdered sugar (optional)
