Classic French Toast

This is classic and oh so good French Toast. I love it! This is another great recipe from the Food Nanny cookbook. My family would be happy to have breakfast for dinner every night, especially if I made yummy French toast. I made it with Rudi's Organic Country White Bread because it was the thickest I could find in the store, but this would also be great with sliced French bread.

Classic French Toast

8 thick slices white bread
3 eggs
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
pinch nutmeg
1 tablespoon canola oil
1 tablespoon melted butter

Preheat a griddle to medium high heat (I set mine to 375).

In a bowl combine eggs, milk, sugar, vanilla, and salt; whisking well to blend. Add cinnamon and nutmeg. Pour into a shallow dish or pie plate.

Combine oil and butter in a bowl and spread 2 teaspoons of this mixture over the griddle. Dip one slice of bread into the egg mixture, turning to coat both sides evenly; carefully place on the skillet. Repeat with as many slices of bread as will fit on the griddle. Fry until the bread is browned on both sides. Serve slices immediately with butter and syrup.
