Whether for a brunch or a weekend breakfast with friends or family, there is no better item to serve than French toast! This recipe combines very well with our favorite- RUM! This recipe works well with many types or rum- we recommend trying it with Spiced, Vanilla, or Banana – but the sky is the limit!
Yields 4 servings
1/2 to 3/4 cup half & half
3 large eggs
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
2 tablespoons rum – spiced, vanilla or banana
Pinch of salt
6-8 slices of thick bread
Whisk together the half & half, eggs, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, rum, and salt.
Soak bread slices in egg mixture for at least 4 to 5 minutes.
Lightly oil and heat a large griddle or heavy skillet on medium-high. Place the soaked bread on the griddle and cook for 3 to 4 minutes on each side, or until French toast is a light golden brown.
Serve hot with maple syrup, butter, or powdered sugar (or all three!) with a side of fresh fruit.
