French Toast Recipe - My Mom's Breakfast Treat

My mother, Mae, has been making this french toast breakfast treat for years, and I always ask for it when I'm visiting my folks.. It's quite simple, and a slight variation to standard french toast recipes out there.. Here's what you need to do:

  • Whip 6 eggs in a bowl
  • Mix with milk (whole, skim or 2 percent)
  • Add 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • Sprinkle cinnamon sugar into mixture
  • Cut french bread into 2 inch thickness pieces

Thoroughly soak the french bread slices in the mixture and cook both sides throughly in buttered pan. While doing this, in a pot warm a bag of frozen strawberries, until fully melted. This will create a nice, warm strawberry sauce with chunked strawberries. Prepare plates with a nice coating of powdered sugar. Place the cooked french toast slices on the plate, and cover the slices with the warm strawberry sauce.

I like to add walnuts and blueberries to vary the taste sometimes, so if you do this, just microwave the blueberry/walnut mixture for about 10 seconds or so.

Enjoy the toast!

Simple enough to do and a nice extra to traditional french toast. Sounds and looks good enough to serve to overnight guests.
