Sugar-Crusted French Toast

Sugar-Crusted French Toast
Sugar-Crusted French Toast was our assignment this week in French Fridays With Dorie.  My daughter, Becky, summed it up best - Dorie nailed it on this one.  This is the best French Toast ever.

A rich egg bread  Brioche or challah that is stale - is soaked in a rich egg custard that is flavored with vanilla extract.  Next, you cook the bread in a nonstick skillet.  Begin by melting some butter in the skillet and then sprinkle some sugar in the pan.  The bread is cooked until the slices are a rich golden brown, flip the bread and cook the other side.

When serving the French Toast be sure to sprinkle it with  some confectioner's sugar.

This is my new go to recipe for French Toast.  I loved it.

You can find this recipe on page 418 in "Around My French Table."
