Poppy Seed French Toast

Poppy Seed French Toast

"I like to use the semisoft, inexpensive french bread or italian bread found at supermarkets, but other breads work well, too. The amount of butter for frying is approximate; use as much as you need. Serve the french toast with maple syrup."

  1. In a small mixing bowl whisk together the poppy seeds, eggs, milk, vanilla, nutmeg, and sugar.
  2. Heat a griddle or large frying pant over medium heat. Melt 1 tablespoon of the butter in the frying pan.
  3. Dip one slice of the bread into the egg batter, then quickly take it out. Continue dipping bread slices, stirring the batter frequently so all the poppy seeds don't sink to the bottom, and laying the bread on the frying pan until no more bread will fit.
  4. Cook the slices for about 2 minutes per side, or until they are golden brown. Repeat with remaining bread. Serve hot.

Very tasty French Toast! You don't need to use so many poppy seeds, though, to get their flavor. I used light brown sugar instead of white.

I used whole wheat Bread instead my family isn't big on white bread, were kinda health nuts, well me and my mother but it tasted good! i doubled the vanilla cause it adds more flavour i think :)...

Too bitter/strong poppy for me. I even decreased to 2TBS. My husband liked it. If he wants this again I will only use 1TBS. The poppys didn't have a problem falling to the bottom, I just whisked...
