French toast is good for breakfast, brunch or dinner! Quick and easy to make.
Pairs well with bacon, sausage and fresh fruit. Excellent drizzled with honey or my Homemade Maple Pancake Syrup.
This dish is one of my favorite breakfast treats. I made a minor adjustment to a classic recipe by McCormick Spice.
Cooked egg-soaked bread slices in unsalted butter. Rich flavor provided by vanilla and nutmeg (or use cinnamon).
Be sure to check out my French Toast Breakfast Sandwich. Hearty deliciousness!
I used store bought packaged honey wheat bread for this recipe.
Available on the bread aisle in most grocery stores.
Southerners refer to packaged sliced bread as a loaf of bread. I was born and raised in Georgia (USA). Always referred to it as a loaf of bread.
Wondering what people around the U.S.A. call it. Would love to hear from you. Please share your thoughts in the comments section!
