Do you really need a French Toast recipe? I’m not sure. But this is one of my favorite things to eat for breakfast (but nothing beats my overall favorite: Pancakes!) and I just want to make sure that everyone knows how simple it is to make french toast at home!

The best thing about any french toast recipe is that most households have all the necessary ingredients on hand at any given time: bread, eggs, and milk. Really, that’s all you need! Of course you can fancy things up by throwing in dashes of cinnamon and/or nutmeg. You can vary the richness by switching between skim milk, buttermilk, or even half-and-half. And don’t even get me started on all the different types of bread you can use! The possibilities are endless and delicious!

I hope you enjoy the recipe, I know my family does!


  1. Break eggs into a wide, shallow bowl; beat lightly with a fork. Stir in vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg and milk.
  2. Over medium-low heat, heat griddle or skillet coated with a thin layer of butter.
  3. Place the bread slices, one at a time, into the bowl, letting slices soak up egg mixture for a few seconds, then carefully turn to coat the other side. Soak/coat only as many slices as you will be cooking at one time.
  4. NOTE: To make sure the bread is no too soggy I squeeze the bread lightly to drain the excess mixture.
  5. Transfer bread slices to griddle or skillet, heating slowly until bottom is golden brown. Turn and brown the other side. Serve French toast hot with butter and syrup.
