French Toast- The Nana Way!!


Did I say Salted Butter?

Ingredients: Yield 6 to 8 pcs of French toast

3 eggs

1/2 cup Heavy cream or Half and Half

2 full tablespoons or more of Cinnamon if you are a cinnamon nut!

3 tablespoons of sugar

1 full teaspoon of Salt

1.5 teaspoons of real vanilla

Salted butter!! LOTS!!!!!!!!

Break the eggs and beat well. Then mix in heavy cream or half and half, and beat well again.

Next add the vanilla, cinnamon, sugar and salt. Beat again so it is all one happy batter.

Heat your sauté pan or Cast Iron pan which I truly believe in the magic of the cast Iron pan.

NOTE: I use a liberal amount of non stick spray on side of pan the help when cleaning the

pan.After the no stick spray i add a very ample amount of real salted butter. My Nana was

Hungarian and there was nothing about skimping with the salted butter. She added so much

she was almost frying the French toast in butter. When butter is melted and do not burn it, batter

your bread, I batter it once on 1 side and once on the other, just don’t let it sit in the batter and

continue to soak it all up.

Carefully add to heated pan and cook one side till it starts to brown, then flip over and finish

cooking the other side. If you are low on butter add more! This recipe is truly a celebration of

butters true goodness. Please don’t tell your doctor!!

When French toast is done put on a favorite plate, top with powdered sugar which

completes this and serve with warm local syrup and guess what!! Yes spread some more butter

and watch it melt so beautifully!!  Enjoy this old style breakfast as I have done for years!!!

Peace, Love and French toast! Remember all roads lead to Mike’s Place in good ole Kent,
