Back when I worked at the dining center as a prep cook, I learned how to make some really good French toast. The dining center was my job back when I was in college and I’d do everything. From serving, to working the grill, and to helping the cooks prepare the meals for the next day. That job was pretty awesome and fun, and I met a lot of cool people there. This grill was so huge, I’d be flipping like 50 pieces of French toast at a time.
What makes a good French Toast? The key is in the bread…. We used Texas toast at the dining center. The custard is pretty simple, all it is is milk, eggs, a little vanilla, and cinnamon. You don’t need any sugar for the French Toast either, the maple syrup is sugary enough. Then you can top it with whatever your little heart desires like fresh strawberries and black berries. To make this French toast fun, I turned them into French toast sticks. They didn’t last long.
If any of you are on mailing list and wondering where the emails are, I’m sorry. I was planning on waiting until I get to a list of 500 people and then I’d start sending them out. I’m pretty close so hopefully by next month the emails will start coming. Right now it’s just a gathering process.
