This French toast is the real French deal. Transform day-old bread into something you’ll want time and time again. MinusG bread leisurely soaks in the sweet vanilla custard and then is cooked it in butter until crisp on the outside and creamy inside. Luxuriously rich and blissfully simple.
PREP 3 min. | COOK: 4-6 min. | MAKES: 8 servings
- ¼ c. sugar or granulated sugar substitute
- PREP: In a medium bowl, beat the eggs, sugar, and vanilla and then stir in the milk. Soak the slices of bread in the mix 1 at a time, waiting until it’s evenly soaked, about 30 seconds per side.
- COOK: In a large skillet over medium heat, melt 1 chunk of butter. Add 2 slices of bread to the skillet at a time, first allowing any excess milk mixture to drip off. Cook until golden brown and crisp at the edges, 2 to 3 minutes per side. You may need to lower the heat a little to keep the bread from over-browning. Move to a plate. Repeat with the remaining butter and bread.
