  • I’ve always liked the idea of French toast, but the cloyingly sweet versions make me want to retch.
  • You know the ones, coated with powdered sugar then drown in maple-flavored corn syrup or covered with syrupy fruit and buried under a mountain of overly sweet whipped cream.
  • Set out to make omelets one morning, when I got the ides to make French toast.
  • I like this as a side with simply prepared veal or lamb, and as the base for open-faced veal or lamb patties with a light pan sauce.
  • When making this for breakfast, I’ll break another egg or two, whisk them into the remainder of the batter, scramble then divide it between the plates.
