Caregory : Breakfast Recipes

Whether you're looking for a special-occasion breakfast dish or just feel like treating yourself, this easy French toast recipe, which uses sturdy Italian bread, is a keeper.


    • 4 large eggs

    • 2/3 cup milk

    • 2 teaspoons cinnamon

    • Pinch nutmeg

    • 8 thick slices slightly stale Italian bread ¾ inch

    • 2 tablespoons melted butter or neutral oil

    • Maple syrup, butter, fruit, and confectioners’ sugar for serving


    1. Whisk together eggs, milk, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a medium bowl. Add in any other spices or seasonings at this time; you can add a pinch of ground cardamom or allspice if you like for an extra touch. Whisk egg mixture until well blended and pour into a wide shallow bowl or cake pan.

    2. Place each slice of bread into egg mixture, immersing bread and allowing it to soak for 1 minute.

    3. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high. Lift bread from egg mixture, letting excess egg drip off before placing bread in skillet. Fry French toast until browned on one side, about 2 minutes. Flip and brown on other side, about 2 minutes. Repeat with remaining bread. Serve French toast hot with butter, maple syrup, and/or fresh berries or other fruit. Dust with confectioners’ sugar if desired.
