Italian Style French Toast Recipe

Tuesday, January 29, 2013

Italian French Toast?The ingredients are very rich but if you want to treat yourself to a great Italian french toast, this is it. Sometimes you have to indulge. When we were growing up, we had a milkman. Mom would use some of the cream accumulated on the top of the milk in this recipe and sometimes even whip the cream to use as a garnish. Don't forget to pass the butter and real maple syrup.

The Bread Makes This French Toast



A great loaf of bread makes all the difference in this french toast.



I buy a big whole loaf of bread and cut thick slices.



You can use day old bread and a nice hard crusted type taste the best!
