French Toast - yummy breakfast!

After sending my brother the blondies, I was left with an almost full loaf of white bread.  While its good for a few Thanksgiving leftover sandwiches, there were only so many leftovers!  Next best thing to do with white sandwich bread?  FRENCH TOAST, cheap bread style.  It was a great way to use up the whole milk, too.

Friday Vacation Breakfast
The Necessities...
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • cinnamon
  • vanilla 
  • nutmeg
I added the eggs, milk cinnamon, vanilla and nutmeg to a bowl.

and then gave it all a big stir.

Ready for bread
One by one, I added the sliced bread to the bowl and let it soak up all the goodness.

Soaking it all in
I then added the bread packed with goodness to a non-stick pan that I had spritzed some PAM on and cooked the bread over medium heat until each side was nice and brown.


Voilà - french toast, cheap bread style!  So much of the cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla soaked into the bread that it almost looked like I used wheat bread.  

French Toast
This was such an easy breakfast and a great way to use up a brunch of bread rather than just making a boat load of breadcrumbs!  While definitely not true french toast, this was not a bad substitute.

Anyone else have fun flavor combinations for french toast?


  1. This is an easy/cheap dish that I don't make NEARLY enough. Maybe next week when I am on my pseudo-vacation!

  2. I like that, cheap bread style ;) There's nothing like good old french toast

  3. I love simple French toast like this; it reminds me of home! I was randomly craving French toast last night before bed!

  4. There is NOTHING so good as French Toast! Im now starving...at work...with no hope of French Toast- thanks. :-)

  5. I make my French toast almost the exact same way... but without nutmeg. And I don't let it soak for very long because I like it on the drier side. I always say that in the trifecta of French toast, waffles, and pancakes, French toast is my favorite.

  6. I very weirdly am not a French toast fan. But I am a fan of using up leftover ingredients!

  7. I keep saying I'm gonna start a Sat morning breakfast from scratch tradition. hasn't happened yet..... though French toast is a good reason.
