Use egg bread (challah), raisin bread or croissants.

Add a little sugar or maple syrup to egg and milk mixture.

Add spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice) to the egg and milk mixture.

Sprinkle French Toast with cinnamon sugar after cooking.


Recipe can be doubled or tripled.

If cooking a large batch, keep cooked slices warm by transferring to a baking sheet and holding in 200˚F (100˚C) oven while cooking remaining slices.
