We went to a restaurant in Washington once that had the Yummiest breakfast choices. I chose Pecan crusted french toast and Jason had the cinnamon role french toast. His was good, but mine was better. I have been recreating this dish for a while now trying to get it just right. Here is what I came up with. Its super easy and uses items that I usually have at home.
I always have some sort of French bread laying around that has gotten old, and this is perfect for french toast. Did you know you were supposed to use stale bread to make it? I learned that on the food network.
Melt some butter in your pan. Get your egg and milk mixture all ready. I always add a little flavored creamer to my mixture; it gives it a nice flavor. This time I chose Hazelnut.
I cooked it on both sides till it was a golden brown. I like to put my french toast in the oven for ten min or so, because I don't like the middle to be SOGGY....that's just gross!
I took the leftover coating and fried it up in the pan; it gets nice and toasted.
I top my french toast with this Syrup; we have a local restaurant that uses this same syrup and it is to die for! We had a good breakfast that lasted us most of the day, they are very filling!
cereal (cornflakes, honey bunches of oats)
buttermilk (if you dont have it you can make it by adding a tblsp of vinegar to a cup of milk and let it sit
