FRENCH TOAST

 

  • Cooking Time: 24 min
  • Servings: 4
  • Preparation Time:

Ingredients

  • * 1 cup half-and-half
  • * 3 large eggs
  • * 2 tablespoons honey, warmed in microwave for 20 seconds
  • * 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • * 8 (1/2-inch) slices day-old or stale country loaf, brioche or challah bread
  • * 4 tablespoons butter

Directions

  • In medium size mixing bowl, whisk together the half-and-half, eggs, honey, and salt. You may do this the night before. When ready to cook, pour custard mixture into a pie pan and set aside.
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Dip bread into mixture, allow to soak for 30 seconds on each side, and then remove to a cooling rack that is sitting in a sheet pan, and allow to sit for 1 to 2 minutes.
  • Over medium-low heat, melt 1 tablespoon of butter in a 10-inch nonstick saute pan. Place 2 slices of bread at a time into the pan and cook until golden brown, approximately 2 to 3 minutes per side. Remove from pan and place on rack in oven for 5 minutes. Repeat with all 8 slices. Serve immediately with maple syrup, whipped cream or fruit.
