  • For best results, use a stale or day-old bread for this recipe, as it will absorb more of the egg mixture.
  • If you prefer a sweeter French Toast, you can increase the sugar to 3 tablespoons.

  • Substitute almond milk for regular milk: Almond milk is a healthier option than regular milk and can provide a subtle nutty flavor to the French toast.
  • Substitute coconut oil for butter: Coconut oil is a healthier alternative to butter and adds a tropical flavor to the French toast.

Cinnamon French Toast Prepare the French Toast recipe as directed, but add 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon to the egg mixture before dipping the bread slices. Dust with powdered sugar and serve with pure maple syrup.

Fruit Salad - A light and refreshing side dish to complement the richness of the French Toast. It's a great way to add a hint of sweetness and some extra nutrition to your meal.

Scrambled Eggs: Scrambled eggs are a great accompaniment to French Toast as they provide a savory contrast to the sweetness of the dish. They are quick and easy to make and provide a good source of protein.
