Those who know me well, know that I enjoy my French toast. I realize most people probably do not use a recipe for this, but for those who like to follow one, here is my favorite version.
- 8 thick slices Texas Toast or French Bread (60% whole wheat)
- 4 eggs
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 large apple, thinly sliced
- 1/2 Tbsp butter
- 1 Tbsp sugar
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- Preheat griddle between low and medium heat.
- In a shallow dish, such as a pie plate, beat eggs well using a fork and blend in the milk
- Dip each slice into the egg batter, turning it over, then lifting it and letting the egg drip off, even slightly squeezing the sides to make sure bread is wet throughout but not heavy.
- Place on heated griddle (I use a square non-stick) and cook several minutes on each side. Make sure it is not so hot that it browns too quickly.
- Place cooked toast on rack in 175 F oven to keep warm.
- Meanwhile, in a small pot, cook apple in butter, sprinkled with a mix of 1 Tbsp white sugar and 1/4 tsp cinnamon. Cook, stirring as needed, until soft, about 5 minutes.
- Serve toast with cooked apples and a drizzle of maple syrup.
- Left over slices freeze well. Make extra to pop in the toaster on mornings when you can't fuss.
