French Toast

I usually use brioche or french bread when making this French Toast.  This time, however, I used thick cinnamon swirl bread that I found at Lunardi’s when I went to pick up some salmon.  The kids had been begging me for french toast and the Hubs tried to make it one morning with just our regular wheat bread.  Their response?  “This is not how mom makes it!”  They were in for a treat!  And why not?  After crinkling their noses when comparing the Hubs’s to mine?  I would have given them the credit card!

French Toast bread


1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
2 Tbs sugar
4 Tbs butter
4 eggs
1/4 cup of milk (can use soy, but will change flavor slightly)
1/2 tsp vanilla extract (such as Morton & Bassett Spices)
8 slices challah, brioche, or french bread


In a small bowl combine cinnamon, nutmeg, and sugar.  Set aside.

In a 10″ or 12″ skillet, melt butter over medium heat.  Whisk together cinnamon mixture, eggs, milk, and vanilla and pour into a shallow container.  Dip bread in egg mixture.  Fry slices until golden brown, then flip to cook other side.  Serve with warm preferred toppings such as syrup, fruit compote, or powder sugar.

Serves 4

Total time: 30 minutes
