I didn't forget to take a picture this time! Be proud....be very proud! It's a phone pic....but its a pic so don't get all judgy. I think the phone pic looks pretty good. I would cook this meal and eat it. Ha!
We bought the bread at Costco after tasting
devouring 5 slices with melted butter from the little vendor/samplers. Those people are dangerous. I pretty much purchase all the food they beg me to sample. It's a psychological thing that Costco does. Don't believe me...read this.
The bread sat in the bag for about 2 days until I decided to slice it up, soak it in some egg and milk mixture, and fry it up in butter. I love my arteries.
*Just wanted to mention that I use a large black cast iron skillet to make my french toast in. I find that it makes a better crust and cooks the toast better.
*When adding the butter to the pan, be sure to turn down the heat each time you add more. If you add butter to the already hot skillet, it will burn the butter and your toast. You want to melt the butter, increase the heat, then add the bread.
4 slices of 2-3 day old french bread
1/2 c. milk (I used soy)
1 tbsp. cinnamon
3 tbsp. butter
Fresh Fruit of any kind
Syrup (warm this in the microwave or pan)
Mix the milk, eggs, and cinnamon together in a bowl. Melt 1 tbsp of butter in a large skillet. Place 1 slice of bread into the mixture coating each side. Place in the hot skillet and cook on both sides. Repeat with remaining slices, stirring the milk, egg, and cinnamon mixture each time. Add butter to the pan as needed. Serve warm, topped with fruit, powdered sugar, and syrup.
