French toast is one of those foods around our house that everyone likes but we rarely make at home. It's so simple to make but we never could get it to taste as good as restaurants. Then the other night, we were debating what type of breakfast we wanted to do for dinner (we love breakfast for dinner around here) and Tim suggested we try french toast again. He searched for some recipe ideas and we mashed them together to come up with this fantastic recipe.
- 2 slices bread
- butter melted, or a non-stick spray
- 1 tsp sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 dash cinnamon to taste
- 1 dash vanilla extract
- 1 tbsp half n half
Pick Your Favorite Toppings
- powdered sugar
- maple syrup
- Heat skillet over high heat.
- In a small bowl, add the egg mixture ingredients. Beat with a fork or whisk.
- Turn skillet to medium-low heat.
- Spray skillet with non-stick spray.
- Dip bread into egg mixture. Flip to coat both sides.
- Place bread in skillet. Cook until bottom is golden brown.
- Sprinkle top with sugar then flip and cook until golden brown.
- Repeat spray, dip, cook, sugar, flip, cook for second (and additional) slice.
- Top with your favorite toppings.
Cut into strips to make it a portable finger food for little ones. Or for better dunking in a syrup container.

I love French toast especially with fresh strawberries but just plain jane French toast is also delicious 🙂
you’re right it is so simple, yet rarely made! funny how that is, i think i will wake up early tomorrow and make that for the boys!
I can never get my french toast to taste as good as the restaurant. This recipe may give me hope!
It’s great! Try it and let me know what you think.
I haven’t made my husband french toast in a while. I think I have everything in the house to make it, think I will surprise him with it tomorrow. Thanks for refreshing my memory.
I hope he loves it as much as our family did. Even our youngest who is a light eater came back for seconds.
This reminds me that I need to make French Toast sometime soon! And this is the “upgraded” recipe of it that I used once I found out it was how my sis in law makes it, definitely a step up from the egg only version! Yumm!
I grew up on the egg only version. I guess that’s why I never really thought about making them at home.
