Source of Recipe
From "The Big Book of Breakfast" by Maryana Vollstedt
"For variety, add a little spice and sweetness to your French toast. It is so good, you don't need syrup. Serve with bacon."
List of Ingredients
◦ 3 large eggs
◦ ½ cup milk
◦ ⅓ cup maple syrup
◦ ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
◦ ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
◦ Dash of ground nutmeg
◦ Dash of ground cloves
◦ ½ teaspoon sugar
◦ 6 slices day-old bread of your choice
◦ 1 to 2 tablespoons butter or vegetable oil, divided
In a large, shallow bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, syrup, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and sugar. Dip each slice of bread in egg mixture, turning to coat, and place on a piece of waxed paper.
Preheat a large nonstick skillet or griddle over medium heat. Add 1 tablespoon butter and swirl to coat the skillet. Add three slices of bread and cook until lightly browned, about 3 minutes on each side, turning once. Add remaining tablespoon of butter and repeat with remaining bread.
Serve with toppings of your choice.
