Fantastic French Toast!

The weekend is approaching! Usually on Saturday morning, we enjoy a breakfast of Pancakes or French Toast. Now, easy is really good! I’ve gotten in the habit of using cinnamon bread while preparing Fantastic French Toast. No cinnamon and no sugar to add into the egg/milk mixture. How easy can that be? I only need to remember to purchase the cinnamon bread. I also use Soy Milk. The Vanilla flavored and the Original flavored Soy is always found in my fridge. Either can be used or 1% Milk.

Preparing Fantastic French Toast (click here for recipe card) with Pepperidge Farm Cinnamon Bread is great! After dining on Sausage Soup last week (portions are in my freezer, too), the balance is preparing other foods with less cholesterol. I use less whole eggs and many egg whites when making this yummy breakfast. Keep in mind that two egg whites equal one whole egg when cooking.

This is one of our favorite breakfasts! Ah, and the extra slices are stored in our freezer for more scrumptious breakfasts on busy mornings.

The recipe is below:

Fantastic French Toast


(1) Loaf Pepperidge Farm Cinnamon Bread
(2) Whole Eggs
(8) Eggs Whites
(1) Cup Milk (I use Soy or 1% Milk)


1. Place Whole Eggs and Egg Whites in a rectangular container and beat with a fork. (I use a 1 & ½ Qt. CorningWare container.)
2. While beating mixture add in Milk and continue beating to combine.
3. Heat non-stick griddle or non-stick skillet on medium heat.
4. Dunk each bread slice in mixture coating both sides and then place on the griddle. (Two or three browning at once)
5. The underside will be golden brown when it is time to turn the bread slice over with a spatula.
6. Turn over and brown other side.
7. Serve with Maple Syrup.

Over the years my family has enjoyed this breakfast so many times. One year my younger son had a great suggestion – use Pepperidge Farm Cinnamon Raisin Bread rather than plain cinnamon bread. Ah, that is so tasty!

Will you be making French Toast this weekend for breakfast?

I have made french toast this way and it's delicious! I made it for my sister-in-law recently and she said she will never make french toast any other way :>) Thank you for your kind comments and concern for Charli and me. I think she is on the mend.
