French Toast

  • 03.02.13

We had French toast for breakfast this morning and my son could not stop eating them declaring that they were the best he ever had. Mind you, I have not changed a thing to them, expect forgetting to spread some butter over when done. He asked to write a blog about it. So here I am with a breakfast dish.
Growing up in France we do have our own version of French toast: “Pain Perdu”. Great after school snack. Simply slices of bread , whether milk bread or brioche soaked in vanilla milk, then soaked in beaten eggs and fried on butter previously clarified. We just eat it fresh off the griddle with no syrup or extra butter.
The below recipe is my own creation.
Bon Appetit!!

This morning, March 2, 2012, breakfast:
French Toast with Bacon and Strawberries


Day old bread
Heavy cream or milk
Vanilla extract
Brown sugar
Maple syrup

Mix together well eggs, heavy cream or milk, brown sugar, cinnamon in a large dish.
Add the bread slices and soak each side of the bread in the egg mixture.
Remove excess batter and cook over medium heat on a griddle.
Spread light butter and drizzle maple syrup over them.

    Sometimes the best recipes are the simplest recipes… ones that evoke memories and enthusiastic reviews! I like your take on French Toast, Giangi — the addition of brown sugar is something I hadn’t thought of — thanks for following up on your son’s request to blog about this. Bacon and strawberries are the perfect accompaniment!

    1. Thank you Kim. My son really gets excited that I listen to him. He , on occasion, left a comment on how much he liked a dish. He is funny that way.
      For me, you are right, are the memory and close bond that bring us together.
      Thank you for following my blog and taking time to comment.
      Have a great week end.

    Hi, Giangi! Left a comment earlier, but messed up signing in (aarrggh) — what I said (as far as I can recall) was: Sometimes the simplest recipes are the best recipes — ones that evoke memories and enthusiastic reviews! Glad your son requested you to blog about this — hadn’t thought about adding brown sugar — I like your take on French Toast. Bacon and strawberries are the perfect accompaniment!
