Simple Pleasures: French Toast

Since breakfast is the so-called most important meal of the day, I thought I should share my favorite breakfast recipe. It’s quick to make and so simple. I’ve been making it since I was kid. The bread you use is up to you; any kind will do. But for the classic texture, I recommend using Challah bread or brioche. And since it’s breakfast time, I always suggest serving it with fresh fruit for a well-rounded, nutritious start to your day. Oh yeah, and add some nice warm Vermont maple syrup for drizzling, of course!



French Toast

Serves 2

  • 4 1-inch thick slices Challah bread or brioche
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup real Vermont maple syrup (for serving)
  • 1/2 teaspoon powdered sugar (optional)

In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, vanilla extract and ground cinnamon. Soak slices of bread in egg batter until saturated. While bread is soaking, melt butter in a large non-stick skillet over medium-low heat. When pan is hot and butter is melted, lift bread from better. Let excess batter drip off and add to pan.  Fry in butter until brown on both sides. Sprinkle with powdered sugar in desired and serve with maple syrup.
