This is a great, simple recipe for french toast. If your using thicker bread or are soaking the bread for a while, I would suggest covering the griddle or pan with a lid. This will cook the inside of the bread, making it less soggy....I also prefer to use butter or margarine in the pan rather than oil, gives it more flavor.
Took way too long to cook. I had to add another egg to get a good consistency. Tasted bland.
I enjoyed this basic french toast recipe. However, make sure the pan is completely hot before frying, because otherwise it sticks bad and you end up with a mess on your hands - like I did. :)
Great, classic french toast. I added all of the spices as suggested and enjoyed the taste, although I would probably use less nutmeg next time. I used the rest of a loaf of french bread that we had bought the night before, so that made it extra tastey. I also followed another reviewer's suggestion and covered the pan with a lid so the middle would also cook.
YUM-O. This stuff is amazing. I have used several different kinds of breads and it all tastes amazing. My advice is to try to use a thicker bread just because the thinner stuff tends to get a little soggier. Thanks for the post.
This recipie was very tasty... we ate it so fast that we all got stomach pains. But it took forever to cook. Is there a faster way... maybe we soaked the bread too much. Please respond. Thanks and it was great!
Excellent recipe, quick and easy. It tastes great with whole wheat bread. Definitely one of the best ones I've tried!
this french toast is full of flavour. My husband loved it and he is not a french toast fan in the first place. This will be a Sunday morning favourite!Thanks!
