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.
