I haven't had French toast in a while. We're talking a couple of years. I've been eating pancakes and toast with cinnamon-sugar butter. Or yogurt. Anyway, Rudi's sent me a box of bread to try* and while I haven't been loving it as much as Udi's, I thought it might be good for French toast. I was right! My problem with Rudi's is mostly that if you toast it straight from the freezer, it stays a lot softer than I'd like. However, it's been redeemed with French toast!
I used cinnamon raisin bread, you can use whatever kind you want.
2 slices cinnamon raisin bread
1/4 c milk
1 t cinnamon-sugar
1 t butter
optional: cinnamon-sugar butter
Beat the egg with the milk and cinnamon sugar. Melt the butter in a pan over medium low heat. Dip each side of each slice of bread well in the egg mixture, then repeat to use up extra egg. Cook soggy bread for a few minutes on each side, until starting to crisp and brown. Flip. Optional step - spread the cooked side with some cinnamon sugar butter, then flip and cook just until the butter melts and the sugar becomes a little crispy. Repeat.
Serve with maple syrup, if you want. Serves 1.
*disclaimer: product was free and I am only reviewing it because I wanted to. You could use Udi's bread instead. Or your own bread.
