This is a really easy and absolutely delicious breakfast option especially on a holiday. I use a sourdough loaf but I also love using an Italian loaf.

Ingredients

I loaf of sourdough bread (or Italian bread)

4 eggs

1/4 cup of milk

1 Tablespoon vanilla extract

I lemon (for its zest)

Butter (for cooking and serving)

Maple syrup (for serving)

 

Directions

  • Firstly, slice your bread in even slices. I usually go with about an inch.
  • Prepare the egg mixture. Whisk all 4 eggs in a medium sized bowl, Add the milk and whisk it so it makes a smooth mixture. Add the vanilla and stir it in. (It should be smelling wonderful right now because of the vanilla)
  • Heat a griddle or a grill pan
  • Dip a slice of bread at a time in the mixture and lay it on the pan. Medium heat – you don’t want it to burn. Feel free to use some butter on the pan to give it a nice golden look and of course, that will be taste amazing
  • Place on platter when done
  • Zest the lemon over the cooked and ready french toast. It gives it a wonderful flavor. You can also use an orange if you like.
  • Serve with butter and maple syrup

Here are some pics from this morning.
