Restaurant-Style French Toast

Out of all of the breakfast mainstays, the only one I have managed to master is FRENCH TOAST.

Pancakes never cook evenly for me, especially since I have an electric stove. Waffles need waffle irons, which i cannot afford. lol French toast is simple; thick slices of bread dipped in an egg mixture, then seared on a griddle to a perfect golden brown.

I always wondered if French toast actually originated in France. So I did a little wiki research.

Fact: French toast was originally called German Toast, as it isn't necessarily from French origin. The name was changed after WWI because of anti-German sentiment.

I always make this recipe when friends sleepover, or when I'm craving a good breakfast, this includes when I'm not feeling lazy about having to clean up all of the dishes. SO FAR, it has gotten raaave reviews by friends and family.

Now on to the recipe!
