another French toast recipe

Over the past five years, I have shared a number of breakfast ideas.  French toast happens to be one of my favorites for a special meal to serve for family or friends.  This is a great recipe that I use over and over, and have adapted it to make it one of my classic breakfast meals.

I use a variety of extracts within the recipe to change the taste, substituting almond extract, orange extract, maple or even a variety of gourmet vanilla extracts.  Each combination gives a unique taste to the dish.

To make this recipe:  In a large bowl, combine these ingredients–1 cup milk , 1/4 teaspoon salt, 2 eggs and 1/4 cup egg beaters, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, and 1 teaspoon  of one of the above choices of extracts, and 1 tablespoon brown sugar.  Mix very well.

Cut ciabatta rolls into 8 to 10 slices.  Dip well to coat into the bowl of batter.  Using a griddle, cook until slightly browned.  Serve with syrup, powdered sugar, and even whipped cream.  Top with chopped nuts if desired.

Serve with sliced fruit or breakfast meats if desired.  This is a wonderful holiday breakfast.  Fast and Easy.
