This recipe is sweet and savory all in one and can be served completely by itself.
Just a little side of fruit, some baked bacon, sausage or scrambled eggs would all be nice additions If you’re looking for something to ad to it.
What type of bread should I use?
French toast can really be made with whatever kind of bread that you’d like.
I’ve even made it with cinnamon raisin bread and sliced day old donuts.
I used classic white bread because that’s what I had on hand.

Classic French toast ingredients:
- Sliced bread
First, in a shallow bowl add the eggs, vanilla, milk, cinnamon sugar and salt.
Then beat them together using a fork.
Now add the sliced bread one at a time and flip it over until both sides are soaked in the French toast mixture.
Don’t leave it in too long or the bread will fall apart.
Then in a large skillet, melt the butter over medium high heat and add the French toast slices.
Flip the bread until it’s golden brown on both sides.
Remove the cooked French toast and stack them onto a plate.
Serve warm with a little extra butter and syrup and maybe some crispy oven baked bacon on the side. Enjoy!
