French toast is delicious. Cut in sticks and dipped in syrup or eaten with a fork and knife, it just seems special. This recipe is one of my family’s favorites. Try a special syrup – real maple, or even berry – for a special occasion breakfast. Lots of breads work well with this recipe, including this white sandwich bread. Enjoy!

In a shallow dish, place eggs, milk, vanilla, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and flour. Whisk until combined.
Preheat the griddle to medium-high and spread butter on the surface. Working quickly, dip each slice of bread in the custard, flip briefly, and then place the dipped slice on the griddle. Repeat with remaining bread.
After 2-3 minutes, when the bottom is nicely browned, flip the slices and cook 2-3 minutes on the other side. Serve with maple syrup.
