French Toast

Now, in my view challah makes the best French toast, with stale french baguettes a close second. However, you have to love the retro bacon dripping suggestion here. Perfect for a Sunday breakfast.
3 eggs
1½ cups milk, or ¾ cup evaporated milk and ¾ cup water
½ teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons sugar
10 slices stale bread
¼ cup butter or bacon drippings
XXXX sugar

Beat eggs thoroughly, add next 3 ingredients and beat well. Dip each slice of bread in milk mixture for a few seconds, then place in heated heavy skillet in which butter has been heated. Cook until golden brown on underside, turn and cook on other side. Add more fat as required. Sprinkle with XXXX sugar and serve at once with syrup. 5 servings. From The Modern Family Cookbook

    Ack! No cinnamon? You can’t make french toast without cinnamon! That’s blasphemy, at least in my house, LOL!

  2. No sugar OR cinnamon on french toast. no bacon grease either. sheesh

  3. Yes, cinnamon and sugar. Otherwise you might as well just make an egg sandwich. I am a cinnamon, sugar, milk, egg, and splash of vanilla kind of French Toast maker myself. I also tend to believe that you need a cast iron griddle–well-seasoned or a LOT of butter in a skillet to perfect your French toast.
