There was a recipe on Egg Nog once. You just dipped the bread in Egg Nog mixed with an egg or two and cooked in a butter skillet.

I normally use a griddle, but my exdh has my griddle.

One time I bought a loaf of either Italian or French bread and cut it up thick. I had a recipe back then for stuffed French Toast.

It called for cutting the slices extra thick and then cutting the slices almost all the way through. You spread the inside with a generous helping of softened cream cheese and throw in some orange marmalade and smoosh it back together. Dip in an egg and milk mixture with cinnamon and fry on each side.

Very good.

If you ever want a really great treat, make French toast with Coffeemate's Cinnamon Vanilla Cream flavor and it's to die for. . Use sourdough bread, then soak it in a combo of the creamer and eggs and then make it like regular French toast.

That sounds really good. Did someone tell you about that or did you run out of milk one time?

I make really good French Toast. My trick for it being crispy and not soggy is to put some flour in the egg mixture. It makes a huge difference. For three eggs I usually whisk in a little less than a 1/4 cup. I also add vanilla, cinnamon, sugar and a splash milk. Try it, it's awesome!

Try this out sometime. Its from my good buddy Jack.



CADILLAC-JACK'S FRENCH TOAST CASSEROLE WITH PRALINE TOPPING

1 (12-16 oz.) loaf French bread
8 eggs
2 C. half-and-half
1 C. whole milk
2 T. granulated sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
Dash of salt

Cut loaf of French bread into 1-inch slices. Arrange slices in buttered 13 x 9-inch pan, cutting or breaking pieces to fit and squeezing in bits and pieces of bread so there is barely any space between slices.

Combine eggs, half-and-half, milk, sugar, vanilla extract, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. Beat with whisk until blended but not bubbly. Pour evenly over bread slices, spooning some mixture in between cracks. Chill, covered, overnight.

The next morning, prepare Praline Topping and spread over casserole. Bake at 350F, uncovered, for 40 minutes, or until puffed and light brown. Serve with maple syrup or honey.


Praline Topping

1 C. butter, softened or slightly microwaved
1 C. brown sugar, packed
1 C. chopped pecans
2 T. light corn syrup
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. nutmeg

Combine all ingredients. Spread over casserole as directed above.
