Mother’s Day French Toast

On Mother’s Day, I made my “special occasion” French toast for brunch. It was the least I could do since The Boy was handling dinner. On Saturday, I made cinnamon raisin bread, but challah or a day old country loaf will work just as well. Serve with hash browns, sausage, fresh fruit, and be sure to make someone else wash the dishes! Hope you all had a wonderful Mother’s Day!

  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 4 large eggs
  • pinch of kosher salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup half and half (or whole milk)
  • 1 loaf of day old bread
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  1. Preheat oven to 300º. Heat the honey for 15 seconds in a microwave.
  2. Whisk it in a pie plate with eggs, salt, cinnamon, vanilla, and half and half.
  3. Cut the bread in 1/2″ slices. Melt 1 tablespoon of butter in a large pan over low heat. Dip each side of the bread in the egg mixture, and place 2 to 3  slices in the pan. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes on each side until golden brown. Keep warm in the oven, and repeat for remaining slices. Serve with syrup and fresh strawberries.
