French Toast

We are getting MORE snow (already almost a foot has fallen and we've got at least 8 hours to go), and the boy was even called off work (quite possibly the first time the company has EVER closed for the winter). Since we're all snowed in, I wanted to make a hearty breakfast and decided to put the milk, eggs and bread to use! I use the basic Joy of Cooking recipe which is my absolute favorite and simple to make.

French Toast
Ingredients
2/3 cup milk
4 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 tablespoons sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
bread (original recipe calls for 6 slices, but I got a dozen out of  my egg mixture)
butter

Directions
  1. Melt 2 tablespoons of butter in pan over medium heat.
  2. Whisk together milk, eggs, vanilla, sugar and salt.
  3. Dip bread in mixture until soggy, but not falling apart.
  4. Once browned on one side, flip over and brown the other side.
  5. If you want to keep it warm and serve all slices at once, you can put it in the oven at 200F to keep warm.
Linds loved hers (ate a slice and a half), but Luke (again) was less than thrilled with eating pieces of it. I'm wondering what his aversion to food is at the moment - he doesn't seem to like a lot of stuff we're trying. Even the boy scarfed down two slices and he isn't much of a breakfast person.

I have the same cookbook. It's definitely one of my faves (out of about 20!).
