Easy, Delicious French Toast Recipe

How Do I Make French Toast?

French Toast is not only a delicious breakfast, it is also surprisingly easy to make! There are a variety of variations in French Toast recipes, and with time you will surely develop your own special method. Many people suggest making French Toast with stale bread because the bread will soak up more of the custard mixture. Fresh bread will do the trick just fine as well!

I like your French Toast recipe, it looks delicious. How much half & half do you use? I see half & half in the preparation steps but it is not listed in the ingredients.

Good call! I usually use around 1/4 of a cup to make the egg mixture a bit thicker & richer. However you can also use a bit of milk or leave it out altogether and just use the egg as the custard. Whatever you prefer!

French toast is one of my favorite things for breakfast. Sometimes I add some honey for some more difference in flavor.
