Normally I make french toast with regular sliced sandwich bread since that is the way my mom made it while I was growing up, but this weekend I decided to fancy it up a bit.
I sliced a day old baguette and popped them into my egg mixture. For the egg, I keep it simple. I don't use milk, just add a quick splash of cold water while beating them and then a splash of vanilla and if I am in the mood, some cinnamon, cardamon or pumpkin pie spice.
I cooked some bacon on the non-sick griddle, so had some nice bacon grease to spread over it to cook the french toast on and served it up with bacon and butter from New Zealand.
