There’s nothing like getting up early in the morning and cracking eggs for French toast, right? It’s a thing that is usually reserved for an occasional weekend morning here. The “kids” were all here for breakfast Christmas morning and this was what I made along with plenty of bacon and sausage, and forgot the pictures.
This is not “eggy” and not soggy either. I added a little Triple Sec to flavor it up along with vanilla extract. I usually make it with Texas Toast ~ not toasted as the name implies. Stale bread works best. You can fry it in melted butter but I usually put it on the griddle and save some calories. Either way, it has a crispy exterior with a creamy interior.
It melts in your mouth and is perfect for a lazy Sunday brunch!

Do you like your French toast with syrup, powdered sugar or both?
