This recipe makes 6 to 8 slices of French toast. This is wonderful with thicker slices of bread, such as "Texas Toast." Serve this French toast with fresh fruit or berries and sausages or bacon for a full, hearty breakfast.

Yield: Serves 4


  • 3 large eggs
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 2 to 3 teaspoons sugar
  • 1/2 to 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • pinch salt
  • 6 to 8 slices bread


In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, sugar, vanilla, and salt.

Dip bread slices in the mixture, turning to coat both sides.

Grease a griddle or skillet or spray with nonstick cooking spray; heat over medium heat.

Cook the French toast slices for about 3 to 4 minutes on each side, or until nicely browned.

Serve with butter and maple syrup.

Serves 4.
