Breakfast For Dinner (bacon & maple french toast)

Yes I've made French toast again but I hope you'll indulge me ;-) as it really is delicious. I made it as part of a cook a long I sometimes join in on that takes place on a forum I visit. I have had french toast lots of times before but this variation was new to me. as said before its delicious and will be made again. funny thing was I almost ran out of time to make this recipe within the cook a long guidelines in fact so much so that I ended up making this popular breakfast dish for dinner, which brings me to a question. do you have breakfast for dinner? ( I often do) & whats your favourite thing to have? :-)

French Toast
3 tablespoons thickened cream or milk
1/2 tea spoon vanilla
3 tablespoons caster sugar
pinch of cinnamon
3 eggs
6 thick slices vienna loaf
Combine the cream/milk, eggs, sugar & cinnamon in a bowl. Soak one slice of bread at a time in this mixture.
Melt half the butter and cook 3 or 4 pieces of bread at a time until golden on each side. Melt more butter and continue cooking until you have used all the bread.
Serve with crispy fried bacon drizzled with real maple syrup.

It's bad, but I don't think I've ever had french toast!

toontz said...

What exactly is caster sugar? Is it like granulated sugar or confectioner’s (powdered)sugar?

You have got to try french yum!

Hi Toontz, here in Aus caster sugar is just like granulated sugar only finer. not icing or powdered sugar. normal graulated is fine, just use a bit less (add amount to your own taste & liking). I used caster to keep within the challenge guidlines as they were given! :-)
