French Texas Toast

French toast is one of my favorite breakfasts to make, because it is simple and delicious. I prefer to use Texas Toast rather than regular, plain, white bread to make the meal more filling. Sometimes, I will top the French Toast with fresh, cut strawberries for a bit of a healthy start to the day.

I start by deciding how many eggs to use, generally going by a 1:1 ratio of eggs to bread slices. Since I have four young children, I often have to cook at least six french toasts.
Directions yielding serving size of 6 Texas French Toast:
Crack 6 eggs into a large bowl, add approximately 3/4 cup of whole milk, 1 tablespoon of cinnamon sugar, and a teaspoon of vanilla extract. Whisk until well mixed, then turn on oven top to medium to high heat, and grease a flat iron griddle with either PAM or lite butter. Once the griddle is hot, start dipping the Texas Toast into the mixture, and place onto the griddle. After the French Toast is cooked on both sides, put on the plate and sift a teaspoon of confectionery sugar on the top. Placing fresh fruit such as strawberries, or blueberries, adds color to the plate, and plenty of flavor to the dish.
