  1. Beat the eggs, sugar, and salt together in a mixing bowl. Whisk in the milk, followed by the flour; whisk until smooth.
  2. Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  3. Soak the bread slices in the egg mixture until the egg has penetrated through to the center of the bread. Wipe off the excess egg. Cook in the deep-fryer several pieces at a time to avoid overcrowding. Cook until golden brown on both sides and no longer soggy in the center, about 4 minutes. Drain the French toast on a paper towel-lined plate before serving.

I wanted my egg "wash" to be a little thicker so I cut the milk back to a cup and a half. That makes it 1/4 cup per egg. I also added two teaspoons of vanilla and a good amount ground cinnamon--...

The flavor was fine but the coating never got crisp.

I had never heard of this before. Being from the south and loving everything from a fried variety- I had to try it. It is DELICIOUS!!! A great crispy outside with a nice french toast-soft insid...

This is one of the most awesomely fantasmagorical things I have ever made. I added 2 tsps of vanilla b/c I just can't imagine french toast without it, but other than that, it was perfect.

This was very good, but had to sprinkle cinnamon and sugar on top, then maple syrup to taste better. I may try this again, with the powdered sugar instead.

I did not have any french bread so just used regular sliced white bread- it worked fine! This was fun to make, served with powdered sugar and maple syrup it was heavy for breakfast but I can see...

Added one tsp of vanilla and a pinch or two of cinnamon and nutmeg. No left overs :D

Yum! Not the healthiest, but good for a special occasion. My brother LOVED them. I just added a little leavening (baking powder) so they would be fluffier :)

Wanted to try something new and this was it loved it and so did my son who is a picky eater!!!

I love crunchy french toast. This is so much better than the traditonal way to make it.
