Yummy French toast to start off your day! Nothing like a warm breakfast to get you going.
Here is what you need to make this yummy recipe.
4 large eggs
1 cup 2% milk
1/4 cup orange juice
2 teaspoons granulated sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon salt
Bread (I use French bread)
Preheat oven to 200 degrees
Crack the eggs into a large mixing bowl & whisk well.
Add the milk, orange juice, granulated sugar, vanilla extract and salt- whisk until well combined.
Quickly dip each bread slice into the egg mixture in the bowl, turning it to coat both sides. Transfer coated bread to a plate while you finish coating the rest of the bread. Heat a skillet over medium heat until hot.
Melt 1 teaspoon of the butter in the skillet, then add coated bread, & cook until bread is golden brown and crusted on the bottom. Turn and do the same to the second side. ( I usually do not actually use 1 teaspoon of butter I just take the stick and coat the pan lightly- just enough to brown the toast and add flavor) Transfer the French toast from the skillet to a baking sheet. Cover lightly with tin foil and place in the oven to keep warm while you cook the other slices.
Repeat with the remaining slices, add 1 teaspoon butter to the pan wiith each slice.
Sprinkle with confectioners' sugar and serve with maple syrup if desired.
Now, sit down with your family and enjoy each other and the meal! Of course, along side the French toast we had to have sausage, fruit and orange juice.
