French, French Toast

It really should have been expected.. when you make bread there tends to be a lot of it. So this morning when Jack asked for toast, a little light bulb lit up and I grabbed one of the two loaves left over from last night. This french toast was really, really good. Like, better than restaurant french toast. (Than again, I haven't been too impressed whenever I order french toast while dining out..)

French Toast

2 eggs
2 T milk
1/8 tsp vanilla
Dash of cinnamon, nutmeg and orange rind
1 T orange juice (preferably squeezed from actual orange)
French Bread

Toppings: powdered cinnamon sugar, butter, syrup

(for a REAL treat, and I didn't have any, otherwise I would have used it, you crush almonds and after dipping the bread in the batter, you dip it in the finely crushed almonds before grilling.)

Whisk eggs, milk and spices together, then add orange rind and juice to complete batter.
Dip the thick slices of french bread in the batter, then grill.

Serve with delicious oranges.

  1. May I just say, delicious! I love sharing recipes - especially ones that have been tried by those I know and love and trust. I am so excited to try the baked ravioli this week! And the creamy chicken enchiladas look delicious! I'd love to share some of my recipes, but I don't take pics of my food and I don't blog. So...not sure how to do that? Anyway, let me know if there is an easy way for me to share my successes!

    Happy New Year to your family!
