Mom's French Toast

My mother makes the best french toast in the world.  I'm not just saying that because she's my mother.  It is so good!


I have been trying to crack her recipe for years.  She doesn't keep her recipe a secret, she just doesn't measure her ingredients.  That makes it extremely hard to replicate her recipe.  Every time I ask her how to make it, she tells me to just throw in milk, eggs, cinnamon and sugar.  When I ask how much of these things to put, she always says, "just eyeball it".

So, after years of experimenting with this one, I think I have finally figured it out.

Ingredients:
2 eggs
12 slices of bread
3/4 cup of milk
1/2 cup sugar
cinnamon
butter (for the skillet, about 1/4 cup needed)

Crack the two eggs into the container.  It works best if you use a square container to do this because the bread fits in it better.  I actually use one of my mother's Tupperware dishes that I never returned.  :)  It's perfect for french toast making.


Add in the milk and sugar.


Throw in the cinnamon.  For this, I don't measure because I usually sprinkle it directly into the mixture.  Generously coat the top of the mixture with cinnamon.


Mix all the ingredients together well.


Coat both sides of each slice of bread with the mixture.

  

Melt butter in a skillet.  Cook the first side for about a minute.


Then flip each slice over and cook for another minute.


When done, I usually stack them on a plate for everyone to grab, just the way my mom always did it.
