Ooooh, it's yummy!!! The recipe I found used 2 eggs, a little milk, 1/4 tsp cinnamon and 1/4 tsp nutmeg. I don't usually put milk in my savoury French Toast, but I followed the 'sweet' recipe exactly....I found the milk made it a bit on the soggy side, so will probably leave it out next time. I cooked 2 slices, and had maple syrup on one and sugar on the other. I liked them both. My dogs are poking their noses under my arm as I type, trying to get at the scraps on the plate - so it's obviously a hit with them too! :)

I picked the Texas breakfast and would have grits or potatoes and salsa added. Since we live out in the boonies, we don't go out for breakfast. I love it when the kids and grandkids are here so that I can make them what they want for breakfast!!

I chose huevo rancheros, havent made that in years, but it would be what I would order if it were on the menu at a restaurant. Also, a chili and cheese omelet with red bliss potatoes homefries on the side. My husband is british, so on Sundays I sometimes make him eggs (he likes them crisp ewwww), fried spam (he doesnt like american sausage or bacon very much), boiled mushrooms, a tin of tomatoes on top of all of that, and then HP sauce, and toast, usually no butter or margarine on it (ewwww), and a cuppa tea.

biscuits and gravy are deeee-licious!
my Dad makes this and just uses canned refrigerator biscuits and a tube of bulk sausage, milk, flour, poultry seasoning and lots of black pepper, then pour it over the biscuits.
good comfort food!

Hey, Paint, thanks for whipping up a batch of sweet French toast and getting back to us so quickly with your opinion! LOL!

Glad you liked the sweet ones, too. In my opinion, the maple syrup makes them.

Hi Bee,

'Biscuits' in the USA are like savoury scones - and are served along with meals in much the same way that we would have bread & butter. They are good spread with butter & honey if you have plain biscuits, but my favourites are the cheese & garlic biscuits - yummy! The biscuits and gravy is a common breakfast dish, and is really very good - it consists of biscuits covered in a creamy white sauce (called 'country gravy') with bits of sausage in it. It's real comfort food :)

Paint.

P.S. 'Biscuits' in the UK are what Americans would call cookies so you see how Bee was questioning the sanity of mixing cookies with gravy....Chocolate Chip au jus anyone?

Ishbel,

When we visited Scotland 2 years ago, we stayed at a Bed and Breakfast in Inverness and the owner made the best porridge I had ever had. Now I make it with cream and a little salt just like she did.

That's great - you can spread the word about the 'right' way to eat it! (Mind you, my husband sometimes sneaks a little brown sugar onto his porridge when he says he needs 'energy'.....!)
