French toast is a really simple breakfast meal that you can make pretty quickly….this is just the basic recipe that I think anybody that has cooked for a while knows… you could make it “pop” a little by adding orange zest, which I think would be a fabulous complimentary flavor.

INGREDIENTS (makes 6 slices)

  • 6 bread slices (can use french bread, regular bread, whatever bread you like)
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon (approx)
  • 1/4-1/2 cup heavy whipping cream (or milk)


  1. break eggs into a large plate or casserole dish
  2. add whipping cream, cinnamon, and vanilla to eggs and whip well with fork
  3. dip bread slices into egg mixture so both sides are coated
  4. place bread onto lightly greased (using PAM or oil), vented oven pan (the kind that comes with your oven when you buy it) and cook on 500 for about 10 minutes or until bread appears “dry” (instead, you could fry bread in a skillet)
  5. serve with syrup, whipped cream, powdered sugar, and/or fresh fruit

I’ve only made french toast using the oven method described above (today actually) once, but I found the toast to be more moist than the usual frying method…I will probably continue to use this method in the future for making this recipe…
