My mother-in-law gets all the credit for inspiring this yummy recipe. Something about having more, smaller pieces of french toast make it that much more fun (and delicious) to eat. You can also freeze slices of a stale baguette and just let them defrost the night before cooking.
Baguette French Toast
- 12 slices of stale baguette, cut about a 1/2″ thick
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
In a small bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, cinnamon and vanilla until well combined. Heat a medium sized skillet over a medium flame. Dunk each slice of bread in the egg mixture, soaking both sides. Place a pat of butter in the hot pan and add bread. Cook on both sides until golden. Serve topped with maple syrup and butter.
