Classic french toast

I am a big fan of breakfast and try to enjoy it every morning. While the weekdays usually only allow for a cup of oatmeal or scrambled egg, if I'm lucky, the weekends give me the freedom to spend a bit more time in the kitchen. However, one of the dishes that I never seem to make is french toast. Pancakes, frittatas, and breakfast sandwiches are my go-to, but since I rarely have a loaf of good classic white bread on the counter, french toast doesn't really stand a chance. Recently I splurged and bought a good solid loaf of farmhouse white bread from Zingerman's and decided to put it to good use. A dip of the thick cut slices in a vanilla spiked egg wash, grilled, the topped with a sprinkle of sugar and a thick maple syrup completely justified my impulse purchase and effectively put french toast into my weekend breakfast rotation. Make sure to use a tasty maple syrup too, like this one from Noble., a tasty breakfast treat for the family seems like the perfect way to celebrate the holiday this week.


  1. It's bedtime here and I'm off to dream of vanilla scented french toast...

  2. This is exactly how my mom makes French toast -- and I love it! Glad you got to enjoy a delicious breakfast! I hope you had a happy Thanksgiving! :-)
