French Toast – One of My Favorite Breakfast Foods

French Toast RecipeFrench toast is one of my all-time favorite breakfast dishes. And it is also perfect for lunch, especially the way I make it. It’s simple to make, and it’s so delicious! The key to making the perfect French toast is to use the right bread. I like to use a nice, thick slice of slightly toasted brioche bread (One of my secrets, so don’t tell anyone!) so that it doesn’t get too soggy.

I also like to add a little bit of cinnamon, nutmeg, and Tahitian vanilla extract to the egg mixture for extra flavor. Once you’ve got your bread and egg mixture ready, all you need to do is fry it up in a little bit of butter until it’s golden brown. Serve with some berries, and you’ve got yourself a delicious breakfast.

But here’s the final, and I think most important secret, I love to make a special syrup with fresh berries, a little sugar and a touch of Grand Marnier! Of course if you don’t want alcohol, or if you are making it for the kids, you can substitute orange juice, or use maple syrup. Oh, oh, oh you’re going to love this one friends!
