Vanilla French Toast

This morning I woke up wanting a hearty breakfast. During the week I don’t have time to make breakfast and usually eat toast on my way to work and cereal and yogurt once I get to work. It is a sufficient meal but on the weekends when I have the time I want to make a better breakfast. My original plan was to make an omelette but then I remembered a french toast recipe I had and decided to make that instead. I’ve only attempted to make french toast a few times in life and it’s never came out noteworthy or even good. I love french toast so that’s probably the only reason I still try to make it. This recipe was easy to make and while I still I can’t taste anything I could smell the french toast cooking and it smelled like french toast you would get from a restaurant. The true test would be what Chad thought. Turns out he really liked it. I think the only way the french toast could have turned out better was if we had Texas toast to make it on. I also would have enjoyed powdered sugar and fresh sliced strawberries but this isn’t Ihop and I did the best with what I had. lol. Cutting the recipe in half still made 7 pieces of french toast which was perfect for the two of us. For the record I had 4 pieces, Chad had 3. haha
