I made Alton Brown’s french toast for breakfast this morning. I am sorry that I did, for I have ruined all other french toast for my family.
I did tweak the recipe by adding a 1/4 tsp cinnamon and about 1/2 tsp vanilla extract. I used a loaf of what was labeled Country Loaf from Companion. I purchased the loaf on Wednesday and let it sit until Saturday. It was perfectly stale and fit for purpose. In addition I baked the bacon. One package on my pizza pan (pan covered in foil) into a cold oven set to 400 F. 25 minutes later and it was perfect.
How good was it? I had to make an extra half batch to get everyone satiated.
