When it comes to french toast, simple is better.
My new weekend addiction? A simple French toast with real maple syrup and berries. You don’t need to add sugar, heavy creams, or use a fancy shmancy bread. A day old chewy French white loaf sliced into sandwich sized pieces will do. The key to a good french toast? Good heat management. You don’t want to burn your toast! So remember butter your pan and fry the slices on medium heat and lower to medium low if necessary. The simple french toast turns spectacular once you drizzle Vermont maple syrup and add french strawberries and/or raspberries. Restaurants over complicate french toast. Make yours at home!
