Thick French Toast
Because it's so thick, this French toast is made in two steps: first, it's browned on the griddle and then it's finished in the oven.
- Serves: 4 persons
- 1cup half and half
- 2teaspoons sugar
- 4slices extra-thick "Texas toast" bread
- ½teaspoons pure vanilla extract
- 2tablespoons butter
Step 1Gather the ingredients. Preheat the oven to 425 F.
Step 2In a bowl or deep measuring cup, beat the eggs thoroughly. Whisk in the half-and-half, sugar, and vanilla.
Step 3Pour the custard mixture into a shallow glass dish; it should be at least 2 inches deep to ensure the extra-thick bread can be fully submerged.
Step 4Heat a griddle to medium-low and melt the butter on it.
Step 5Soak a couple of slices of bread (but only as many your griddle can accommodate at once) in the custard for 10 seconds. Flip them over and repeat.
Step 6Carefully remove the soaked slices from the custard, letting the excess liquid drip into the dish, and transfer the bread to the griddle. Cook until the bottoms are golden brown and then flip over. When the other sides are also golden brown, remove them from the griddle to a baking sheet.
Step 7Transfer the browned French toast to the oven and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until the custard at the center is fully cooked.
Step 8Serve right away and enjoy.
