Basic French Toast
Any bread you like will work: French, Italian, raisin, cinnamon-raisin, wholegrain or multi-grain. Bread that is slightly dried out works well.
- 8 eggs
- 1/3 cup whole milk
- 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg (optional)
- 8 day-old bread slices
- Beat eggs, milk, and nutmeg in shallow dish until blended. Soak 1 bread slice at a time in egg mixture, turning once, letting slice stand about 1 minute per side.
- Heat lightly greased large non-stick skillet over high heat until hot.
- Place as many bread slices in hot pan as will fit in single layer. Immediately reduce heat to medium.
- Cook until golden brown and no visible liquid egg remains, 2–3 minutes per side. Repeat to cook remaining bread. Serve immediately.
