My husband, who has very little cooking experience, wanted to make french toast for us and so I looked up this recipe for him. This turned out so well that it is now our very favorite recipe for french toast...and I have tried dozens of different recipes for french toast. :)

I WAS NOT THRILLED WITH THIS AT ALL. SOAKING THE BREAD TILL IT WAS SATURATED MADE THE BREAD WAY TOO SOGGY. MY FIRST BATCH WAS RUINED. ON THE SECOND BATCH I QUICKLY DIPPED THE BREAD IN THE EGG MIXTURE AND THAT WORKED BETTER. IM ONLY GIVING THIS THREE STARS BECAUSE MY HUSBAND SAID IT WAS OKAY.

This was a good recipe. I used Texas toast instead also I cut out the nutmeg plus used some vanilla. We enjoyed it

I loved this recipe. I did modify it instead of milk I used heavy cream, and for the bread I used Pepperidge farms french vanilla bread! Yummy! Be sure not to let your bread too long, I usually just coat one side, then the other and onto the hot skillet! Yummy

I really enjoyed this French Toast. I was only making 2 slices for me, and when I reduced the servings to 2 it said to use 2/3 eggs, but I was having problems with that so I just used 1 egg. And because of several reviews I cut the nutmeg portion about in half. You could still taste it, but it tasted good. I dipped this in maple syrup and cinnamin. It was great.

Made this for oldest son this morning. This is the kid that inhales food like he has never eaten. He had about 4 bites total out of 2 slices and wouldn't eat any more :-( He didn't like the nutmeg taste and thought it was too soggy. When his brother came down for breakfast and saw his brother's plate he refused to even try it. Thanks anyway.

Pretty good. I sprinkled brown sugar on top because I didn't have any syrup. It provided just the right amount of sweetness.

People like to complicate French Toast for some reason. They like to add extracts and peel and liqueurs, soak Brioche in the custard over night... and on and on and on. They fiddle and fuss and screw around and somehow- somehow- it's never as good as the stuff they get at that little place down the street. Well. Having worked for a succession of little places down the street? This is the sort of recipe they use. Simple, made fresh and a la moment. In fact, with the addition of a splash of orange extract and a coating of Panko crumbs before frying, this is so close to the recipe for which I used to get raves- and which travelled with me through three kitchens- as to be indistinquishable. Good stuff- brown and crunchy on the outside, rich and custardy inside. I would suggest using French bread- supermarket variety is fine- and using any left overs to make a first class grilled ham and cheese for lunch.
