Joanne's French Toast

This is my own recipe, and I have been making French Toast this way since my boys were little. I usually use fresh white bread, but bread that is a bit stale works well, too. If I don’t have real butter or margarine, I use Smart Balance spread, and it comes out just as delicious. Sometimes I prepare a double batch, so that I can make scrambled eggs out of the leftover egg batter. If you like sweet scrambled eggs, this is the recipe for you!

Joanne’s French Toast

3 Eggs
¼ cup Milk
½ to 1 tablespoon Sugar
Butter or Margarine for pan

Dip one slice of bread at a time into egg mixture until well coated on both sides.
Place in pan and brown each side until golden.

Serve with maple syrup and cinnamon, if desired.
