I make this delicious French toast on snow days. I use cinnamon-raisin English muffins rather than bread, with great results. Serve with warm maple syrup.

Directions

  • Mix eggs, milk, salt, and nutmeg together with a fork, until the whole mixture is pale yellow. Pour this into a low, flat pan or a large, shallow dish.

  • If you are using English muffins, cut them in half so that you have six halves. Let the halves or the slices of bread soak on each side in the egg mixture. Spread a layer of granulated sugar on a plate, and dip both sides of the bread in sugar.

  • Heat a griddle or skillet over medium heat. Put about half a tablespoon of butter in the pan, and let it melt. Place two muffin halves or slices of bread in the pan. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes on each side. Wipe old butter out of pan, and repeat with remaining slices of bread.

Outside a snowy Boxing Day... inside lot's of stale bread in the cubboard... Snow Day French Toast... Perfect! This is so easy and good! I like how the sugar caramelizes slurp! and how this French Toast recipie does not require cinnamon (no cinnamon fan). I did do a little variation using buttermilk normal bread and light brown sugar. Tip: Make sure you mix the batter frequently the heavy nutmeg sits on the bottom with the result that the last bread slices are extra nutmeggy. Read More

This turned out super sweet! I don't know if it's great idea to dip the bread in sugar and then griddle it. The sugar melts and gets everything sticky and burns before the toast is cooked all the way. And after you put it on a plate it sticks to the plate and you have to literally scrape it off. Not for me. Read More

The recipe ended up being delicious...after a slight trial and error process. The recipe says to soak bread in the egg mixture. I would say if you want the eggs fully cooked dip and remove the bread very quickly. I also added some ground cinnamon to the white dipping sugar. Read More

This recipe sounded like it would be so yummy but I'm sorry to say it was not to our liking. The only change I made was to add cinnamon to the sugar. I used English muffins as suggested but they were too soggy and hard to keep from falling apart. I really wish we could have enjoyed it. Thanks Laura Owen for sharing your recipe! Read More

I made this recipe with cinnamon raisin bagels which I sliced into thirds. I added a half teaspoon of cinnamon and a half teaspoon of vanilla as well as a few sprinkles of allspice. Instead of dipping the bread into the sugar I sprinkled it on. It proved less messy and I did not waste as much sugar. It was a good recipe but I'll probably try another recipe next time. Read More
