Perfect French Toast

Alright, I have found THE French Toast of all French Toasts… for real!  Yes, the recipe seems pretty ordinary at first glance but I am telling you, it isn’t.  Anthony wasn’t thrilled with the idea of having French Toast for breakfast during conference weekend but trust me, he was singin’ a different tune once he took a bite.  He said, “This isn’t how I remember French Toast.  This is really good!”

I adapted this from Alton Brown’s recipe.  Let’s make some, shall we?

  • 1 c. whole milk or half and half

  • 3 large eggs

  • 2 tablespoons honey, warmed in microwave for 20 seconds

  • 1/4 tsp. salt

  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon

  • 1/2 tsp. nutmeg

  • 1 tsp. vanilla

  • 8 slices of thick bread (I used 8 grain bread from Costco, LOVE that stuff)


Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Whisk together all ingredients (minus the bread).  Pour custard mixture into a pie pan and set aside.

Dip bread into mixture, allow to soak for several seconds on each side.  Set on cooling rack set up over a baking sheet.  Allow to sit for 1 to 2 minutes.

Cook over medium-low heat in non-stick pan or use a flat griddle set to 350 degrees (Allow to heat up to temp before cooking).  Cook until golden brown, approximately 2 to 3 minutes per side. Remove from pan or griddle and place on a baking sheet.  Bake for 5 minutes. Serve immediately with maple syrup, powdered sugar, jam, fruit or whatever else you may desire.
