Do you buy frozened?? Some people do wasn't sure. I make the "scrambled egg batter," dip the bread in the batter, cook the frenchtoast bread on both sides then butter it and sprinkle cinnamon and sugar.
Wasn't sure if you always just warm yours up in the oven or make your own, or skip the cinnamon and sugar!

I use milk, eggs, cinnamon, vanilla and definitely a loaf of italian or french bread. Cook it up on a griddle and serve it up with syrup and confectioner's sugar. Delish!

I like to use a splash of extracts (vanilla or almond) along with flavored Liquors (Ammaretto, Frangelico, Malibu coconut rum) we have on hand to the egg/milk mixture and cook as usual tastes fabulous and is a quick way to change up the plain old recipe. the coffee creamer trick also works and is delicious every time.

So I pre-heat my pan over medium Heat. While this is heating I mix eggs( about 4 to 5 for a family of 4), add a little milk and beat with a fork. Then I add about 1 tsp of vanilla and enough Cinnamon to cover the top. Then mix again. I also add more Cinnamon as needed as I cook. Dip the bread in mix till both sides are covered but not soaked. Cook till golden brown then flip and do other side.

I follow everyone else with the egg + milk + cinnamon + vanilla and whatever bread we have on hand. Cinnamon Raisin bread is really yummy or Texas Toast. I will also freeze any leftovers--Just be sure to put wax or parchment paper between pieces.

Praline French Toast Recipe

Ingredients
9 eggs, lightly beaten
3 cups half-and-half cream
1/3 cup sugar
1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon or nutmeg
24 to 30 slices French bread (3/4 inch thick)

PRALINE SYRUP:
1-1/2 cups packed brown sugar
1/2 cup corn syrup
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup chopped pecans, toasted
2 tablespoons butter
Directions
In a large bowl, whisk the eggs, cream, sugar, vanilla and cinnamon. Arrange bread in a single layer in two greased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pans. Pour egg mixture over bread. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
Remove from the refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Bake, uncovered, at 400° for 20-25 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean.
Meanwhile, for syrup, combine the brown sugar, corn syrup and water in a saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 3 minutes. Stir in pecans and butter; simmer 2 minutes longer. Serve with French toast. Yield: 10-12 servings.

I use stale bread if I have it. I mix eggs and milk together, sprinkle nutmeg and cinnamon on top and add 1 tsp. vanilla. Love it!

When we make French Toast we make it really extravagant. We usually buy a big loaf of French Bread, and the slice it, dip in egg, and fry. Then we usually cut up some Bananas, and make a vanilla/banana custard filling so it is like a French toast sandwich. Then we sprinkle with some icing sugar.
