Breakfast Of Champions

Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day.  If I could, I would eat breakfast for breakfast (duh), lunch, and dinner every day.  Of all the breakfasts, my all time favorite breakfast consists of the following: grits and scrambled eggs, turkey sausage or turkey bacon, and either an English Muffin, homemade waffles, or french toast.
As a kid, my mother made French Toast all the time.  I guess it was easy, and easy to stretch with a lot of mouths to feed. I realized I took knowing how to make French Toast for granted when a friend told me that she loved French Toast but never made it at home because she didn't know how. 
So... for all of you who don't make French Toast at home... here you go!  Enjoy!

You will need:
3 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla (or jazz it up with a capful of Kahlua, Baileys, or Brandy)
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
8 slices of your favorite bread (be creative - Challah is awesome, cinnamon raisin bread, potato bread, etc)

Whisk all ingredients together in a shallow dish large enough for a slice of bread to lay flat in.  Preheat your griddle or large frying pan. You can either use melted butter, cooking spray, or a little vegetable oil.  My preference is a little butter on the griddle.  When your surface is hot enough, dip one side of your bread into your egg mixture. Turn over bread and dip the other side.  You do not want to leave the bread in the egg mixture very long, because it may fall apart. 

Place your sliced bread on your cooking surface and allow to cook for about two minutes then turn.  Your French Toast should be golden brown.  I love my edges to be a little crispy, but it is up to you how much dark you allow your bread to get.

Once both sides have cooked, remove the French Toast to your serving plate.  Repeat the process with your other slices of bread making sure that your cooking surface is re oiled as necessary.

If you are making a big batch of French Toast, have an oven proof pan ready to keep your French Toast warm. Place in the oven on 200 degrees cover pan with foil.

Be creative in serving your French Toast. Top with powdered sugar and fresh fruit, fruit jam or compote, caramelized peaches or bananas with whipped cream, cinnamon sugar butter, or pure maple syrup.
