Buttermilk French Toast

Buttermilk French ToastOkay, lets be honest.  Who doesn’t love a great french toast?  Most of the recipes that I have tried have not been that great and I finally figured out why: they ask for milk!  I mean, these were so good, you didn’t even need to add butter, although when its adding a dollop of butter ever a bad thing?  But as you can see, its pictured without it!

I personally love this recipe, because it has a ‘cheat’ element to it – a loaf of store bought french bread!  I mean, lets face it, some times we just need a quick (but ridiculously delicious) dinner to make for those long days at the office.French Toast

I would say, you should use a thick piece of bread with a harder crust.  That is a pretty good general rule for french toast because the milks/eggs soften it up quite a bit and you don.t want it too mushy!   Additionally, I also cook slowly so that it gets firm and has a slight crunch on the outside.
