Recipe: Homemade French Toast


There’s nothing my kids love more than a big breakfast.

Ok, I don’t hate it either! One of our “big breakfast” faves is French Toast (with a side of eggs, bacon, and oj – naturally). I’ve always just made it playing it by ear. You know – dip some bread in an egg/milk mixture and slap it on a griddle – but I came across a recipe from Alton Brown and was amazed at what a little more effort could do to make this fave even more delicious!

French Toast Ingredients

1 cup milk

3 large eggs

2 tablespoons honey, warmed in microwave for 20 seconds

1/4 teaspoon salt                                                                                                                                                                                                              

1/4teaspoon cinnamon

10 slices day-old or stale country loaf bread


In medium size mixing bowl, whisk together the milk, eggs, honey, cinnamon, and salt. 

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Dip bread into mixture, allow to soak for 30 seconds on each side, and then remove to a cooling rack that is sitting in a sheet pan, and allow to sit for 1 to 2 minutes.

Over medium-low heat, melt butter on a griddle. Place soaked slices of bread one at a time onto the griddle and cook until golden brown, approximately 2 to 3 minutes per side. Remove from griddle and place on rack in oven for 5 minutes. Serve immediately with maple syrup, whipped cream or fruit.   What’s your family’s “big breakfast” favorite?   Original recipe can be found here: Alton Brown French Toast Recipe
