French Toast

HB has been craving French Toast, so that's what we're doing for brunch today. He bought some Texas Toast (thick-sliced white bread) for the French Toast, and some little link sausages to go with.
My question is...do you all put sugar in your batter? I never have, but he remembers his dad putting it in. But then, his dad had one heck of a sweet tooth, and put sugar in everything.

I usually don't put sugar in the egg/milk soak for the bread, but you can add about a teaspoonful with good results. A little nutmeg grind or two would also be good.

Hi Connie,
I make french toast at least once a week for the boys..I use 2 eggs, 1/4 c. milk or cream, 2-capfulls of vanilla, and 2-3 Tab. of sugar.. since I use the Texas toast as well, I let it sit in the batter a few seconds on each side so it soaks in a bit.The boys love it..After cooking I butter and sugar the top,syrup and 3 boys does not fit into my idea of keeping them clean

i don't use sugar in mine, but i do use a tablespoon or two of vanilla, a pinch of nutmeg and a couple teaspoons of cinnamon. i don't have a huge sweet tooth though, but i''m sure adding sugar would be delish.

have fun!

That's what HB has mixed up. He's getting the link sausages fried up, and they smell wonderful. I'm getting HUNGRY!

We loved to make French toast out of Portuguese bread, or Hawaiian bread (same thing as Portuguese nuns went to Hawaii and made their bread), or challah.

Since the bread itself is very sweet, it does not need any added sugar.

That bread is very delicate and one just briefly dunks the slice into the egg mix.

But the result is so good.

Cannot get either breads where we live now.

Sigh.

auntdot, I hate to recommend that you detour into G-ville again, but the Giant at 29 and Linton Hall Road always has that round Hawaiian bread, as well as the dinner rolls (I've got a package in the freezer right now).

Maybe when you check out that Korean meat place you could swing by the store and kill two birds with one stone.
