Whenever our children are under the weather they ask for this super simple favourite.
5 eggs, beaten
1/4 cup milk or light cream
1 tbsp. brown sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
dash of salt
1 loaf of slightly stale french bread - we prefer whole wheat, cut in thick slices
sprinkle of confectioner's sugar (we keep it handy in a shaker from the dollar store)
real maple syrup
Preheat griddle or frying pan to 350 degrees. Whisk eggs, milk, sugar and flavorings together thoroughly. Dip bread briefly, drip drain and fry on a non-stick griddle or frying pan. Watch carefully and turn down the heat if they are browning too quickly. When lightly browned, turn over toast to brown the other side. Garnish with a shake of confectioner's sugar and a dab of real maple syrup. Enjoy hot!
