I never liked French toast until my husband made his for me.I me. There is something about eggs and syrup together that makes me gag. Everyone who eats french toast acts like it is the best thing they ever ate so I tried it over and over and without a doubt the egg taste was there. But the way my husband makes it you don't taste the egg and it is sweet with a slight crunchy crust. Ben is not much of a cook but the few things he does make are VERY good and this is one of them. I'm not exactly sure how he came up with this recipe but I remember when he decided he could make this just right and to this day if we are out of vanilla extract he wont even bother making it.
6 pieces of Italian bread
1/4 cup whole milk
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 tbs butter
Add all ingredients to a bowl and whisk together until well combined. Once the griddle is piping hot spread 1 tablespoon of butter all over. This is a essential to getting that nice butter crust on top. Dip each piece of bread in the mixture on both sides but don't over soak. What makes his french toast so special is the egg is minimal. Place the each piece on the griddle and cook both sides until golden brown.
He cooks the bacon on the griddle first which I think adds another great flavor to each piece of bread. Give it a try and let me know what you think. If you have any french toast tips I would love to know them.
