I didn’t read all the responses so if this has been mentioned already my apologies. I’ll share with you my secret but don’t tell everyone, I’ve been the french toast king of my sons buddies for years…if word of my secret recipe gets out that’s it, I’ll be toppled.
Eggs, vinilla, milk or cream if you have on hand, nutmeg and brown sugar / cinnamon combination. I buy it premixed however you could just “wing” it, brown sugar AND cinnamon in the mix. Also I’ll buy extra thick sliced bread…another “treat” is to use the pepperidge farm raisin or cinnamon swirl bread. I prefer the raisin as the cinnomon swirl can be a bit much, unless you really like cinnamon.
Quick related story. When I was in high school we would stay over a a fellow team mate from footballs house. We would generally crash in his yard in a tent, have a “camp out”. When his father would know we were staying over he would buy 3-4 loaves of bread, and every morning he would be waiting in the kitchen for us to wake up and he would sit us at the kitchen table, tell us to recant our night before and he would revel in our stories while cooking us french toast.
My friends father recently passed away, and I told this story to my friend and told him I had such fond memories of his father doing this for us, when my son was in high school, and his football buddies would stay over I would buy 3-4 loaves of bread…and wait in the kitchen for them to wake up. I would have juices (for their hangovers) out and I would prod them to tell me the stories of their previous nights adventures, while I joyfully cook them french toast for breakfast.
Friendly reminder to all of us, you never know how something that might seem so simple to you, like cooking breakfast, could actually make a life long impression on those around us. I’m so thankful for those memories and experiences and equally thankful I was able to hopefully create similar fond memories for my son and his friend.
French Toast… teaching us what life is all about!
