Perfect French Toast

This is a really american version of french toast (much yummier than the boring everyday version), serve with bacon, maple syrup or berry compote.

Prep
Cook
Serves 4people
Ingredients
6
large eggs
3/4
cup low-fat milk
3/4
cup heavy cream
2
tbsp honey
1-1/2
tsp vanilla extract
2
tsp cinnamon
heaping 1/4 teaspoon salt
1
loaf day old challah, brioche or other good bread sliced 3/4-inch thick
unsalted butter
vegetable oil
Directions
1.
Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Set wire rack on baking sheet and set aside.
2.
In a large baking dish, whisk together the eggs, milk, cream, honey, vanilla, cinnamon and salt.
3.
Place half of the sliced bread in the custard and let soak, flipping occasionally, until saturated but not falling apart, 1-2 minutes depending on how moist you like your French toast.
4.
Heat 1-1/2 tablespoons butter and 1-1/2 tablespoons oil over medium heat in a large skillet. Cook the first batch of soaked bread until golden brown, 2-3 minutes per side. Transfer to the wire rack and place in the oven to keep warm while cooking the remaining bread. Wipe the skillet clean with paper towels. Soak and fry the remaining bread, using butter and oil as necessary, until it's all cooked. Serve hot with maple syrup.
