French toast is undeniably one of the sweetest breakfast foods.

I am not a huge fan of breakfast foods in general, but this is one of my husband’s favorites.

There are many recipes for French toast, each with their own little, unique twist.

Today, I’m giving you three from which to choose.

The first two come from my great-grandmother’s recipe book, while the last one is the recipe that we use in my house.

Plain Jane French Toast


  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 2 well-beaten eggs


Mix all of the ingredients together in a shallow dish.

Heat a skillet with a small amount of grease — if you keep bacon grease, this is a good way to utilize it.

Dip slices of bread into the mixture and fry them until golden brown.

Serve with butter and syrup, honey or jelly.

Improved French Toast


  • 2 well beaten eggs
  • 1 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 cup flour
  • milk


Sift flour and sugar into the beaten eggs.

Add enough milk to make the mixture runny.

Dip bread slices in the batter and fry them lightly in a heated skillet with grease.

New Age French Toast


  • 4 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 2 tablespoons white granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon orange liquor
  • 1/2 cup milk or half and half


Lightly beat four eggs in a bowl that is big enough for the bread you are using to lie flat in it.

Add cinnamon, nutmeg, sugar, vanilla extract and orange liquor to the eggs, and mix well.

Once these ingredients are mixed thoroughly, add the milk and mix one more time.

Coat the bread with the mixture and fry it in a skillet. Serve with butter and honey.
