Yes, I know it's not French, but that's what you say when you want to have it at the breakfast place. And no, it's not just for breakfast, it's for whenever you feel like it. If you want to get fancy, the toasts may be served with berries and fruits on cottage cheese, or a couple slices of crispy apple wood bacon, some sizzling sausage links, etc. I just like it simple and GOOD, with my favorite spice cinnamon.
Allow me to correct this: it IS French. ^o^
Step 1: Get the perfect drowner vessel
I like to use a pyrex pie pan 8 or 9 inches in diameter, but anything that can take in a slice of bread flat is just as practical. Using a fork, mix all the ingredients until well-blended.
These are the ingredients:
3 large eggs
1/4 - 1/3 cup whole milk or half-and-half
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
6-8 slices of white bread, thicker is my preference
1 tablespoon butter
powdered sugar for dusting
