EASY FRENCH TOAST
With Swirls & Sprinkles

Our recipe for FRENCH TOAST is likely
THE most basic recipe out there:
Eggs + Milk + Bread + Toppings
Notes: Medium-High heat. If you don't have a non-stick pan, you'll need butter/oil to grease your pan before you put your [dipped] bread down. Once the egg/edges look a bit crisp, I flip them. Peeking is allowed to brown them just the way you like.
◊ Eggs: For me, the one constant in this recipe.
◊ Milk: In the Fall, I like to use eggnog/flavored eggnog.
◊ Bread: I typically buy inexpensive white or wheat bread. Now and then, I'll get a loaf of Cinnamon Burst Bread [Great Harvest], and when SMITH'S has their ^cinnamon swirl bread available, I grab a couple of loaves and freeze one. [It's a few dollars cheaper than the Cinnamon Burst Bread that we love so much.]
◊ Toppings: Traditionally [at our house] butter and syrup. For Birthday French Toast we added a few colored sprinkles.
If you consider eggs, milk, and bread "basics" at your house, you use them often which makes French Toast an inexpensive meal [the cost of eggs and bread slices used].
