Thick slices of country bread, soaked in whole milk, eggs, vanilla and sugar then pan fried in butter.
This is what I'm asking you to put in your face today.
Your belly can thank me later. Your hips, butt and thighs can address formal complaints to my dog Yoshi. He's a good listener. Trust me, I know.
In my world, the perfect French toast has a golden brown exterior with crisp edges and a rich, custardy (is that a word?) center.
To achieve this French toast perfection you'll need good day old bread cut into one inch slices and you must pan fry in butter on a low-medium flame. This will blow your mind!
