French Toast

Yummy!  Nothing better for breakfast, lunch, or brunch than French Toast!

The Recipe:

6 eggs

1/4 cup + 2 Tb milk

1 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp vanilla

oil & butter

12-15 slices of bread (this is a good way to use up stale bread!)

Whisk together the first four ingredients until well blended and smooth.

In a large skillet, heat 1 Tb butter and 1 Tb olive or vegetable oil until melted and hot.

Place egg mixture in a flat dish.  A 4x4 baking pan works perfectly for this.  Dip one slice of bread into the egg mixture, turn and dip the other side.  Place dipped bread into the hot skillet. My skillet holds 4 slices at a time.  Cook on medium heat until both sides are golden brown.  Repeat with remaining slices of bread until you use up all the egg mixture.  Add butter & oil as needed to keep toast from sticking to pan.

Serve with syrup, jam, or whatever you like as a topping!
