French Toast, for me, not by me

Pin It Earlier in the week, the husband baked two delicious breads. One was gone quickly, the other one, we didn't get through as fast. So on Saturday morning, I woke up to find the husband hard at work on some french toast, using his bread.

The toast was probably the best he's ever made. I think it makes all the difference to use a good, stale bread, thick cut. After teaching him how to cut an apple, which he was completely clueless about, we got to eating.

He verbally told me this recipe earlier, so here it goes.

French Toast, a la husband
6 large slices of bread (can't do Wonder Bread here folks)
1 cup of milk
3 eggs
1 1/2 tbsps of melted butter, and more butter for the skillet
1 tsp of vanilla extract, or other extract if you prefer
1 tsp of salt
1 tbsp of sugar or honey
pinch of nutmeg, optional
pinch of cinnamon, optional
powdered sugar, for fanciness

1) Combine all your ingredients together, except for the bread, of course. Beat.
2) Soak each peace of bread on both sides for about 30 seconds.
3) Heat some butter in the skillet, and cook each bread for about 3-4 minutes a side, until golden.
4) Top with powder sugar and enjoy with maple syrup.

  1. There's a cafe near my house that makes "Frenchy Toast"--which is basic french toast but with full pretension. Placing the order, however, negates any sense of class because I giggle like an idiot.
