Classic French Toast

Growing up, my mama hardly ever made pancakes. She was an amazing cook and on Sundays she'd often make us crepes or French toast! I learned how to make french toast from a very young age because its so easy! Its such a great way to use up day old bread too! You can find our recipe below...

Recipe: Classic French Toast (serves 4)

8 slices bread ( a dense bread like ciabatta, french, or sourdough bread works great)
1 1/2 cup Milk (you can use heavy cream if you want a richer french toast)
3 eggs ( I like to use cage free eggs, but any will do)
2 tsp vanilla
dash of salt
Butter (for pan)
Maple syrup
Confectioner's sugar (powder sugar)

Combine milk, eggs, vanilla, and salt in a bowl. Soak slices of bread in the mixture.
Melt some butter in a pan on low heat so that the butter doesn't burn. Coat entire pan. Put the soaked slices of bread in pan and increase the flame to a low medium. Wait a few minutes until the bread is a golden brown. Flip over and repeat. Serve with drizzle of maple syrup and sprinkle powder sugar over it.
Add some sliced strawberries or other berries on top if you desire.
