Vanilla French Toast

I've discovered the secret to french toast: don't use fresh bread. I'm sure there are plenty of people who already knew this secret, but for me it was a bit of an epiphany. Also, vanilla is an amazingly wonderful addition to french toast. Isn't it nice when we are easy to teach?

The amounts listed for this recipe are for feeding two people. Adjust accordingly. I always use one more egg than the number of people I'm feeding.

5-6 pieces of french bread
3 eggs
1 tsp sugar
1/8 tsp nutmeg
1/8 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp vanilla extract
1/8 C or less milk
salt & pepper to taste
favorite french toast toppings

Spray and heat your griddle or pan. In a flatish bowl, beat eggs, sugar, spices, and milk.

Coat each piece of bread individually on each side. Be careful to not let it soak in the egg mixture.

Place on hot griddle and cook each side until lightly brown.

Serve hot with your favorite french toast toppings. We like butter, syrup, and powdered sugar.
