Rhodes French Toast and a GIVEAWAY!!!


My family loves classic French toast. 

When the delicious aroma of vanilla fills the air, my kiddos bolt into the kitchen to pull up their chairs close to the griddle. Their little mouths water as they anxiously watch me flip this batter- soaked bread. We have a system. They’ve gotta have “real” butter, the syrup must be warmed, and I’ve spoiled them with a sprinkle of powdered sugar. 

Because we love this breakfast so much….we are also just a little picky about the bread we use. We can’t just use regular bread out of a bag- oh no, it has to be thick. Our favorite bread to use is Rhodes. I typically let the frozen dough rise and bake the night before, then I slice it in the morning for French toast. 

I hope your family enjoys this as much as mine does! 

In a casserole dish, combine eggs, milk, and vanilla. 

Whisk this mixture together well.     Dip both sides quickly. 

Place soaked bread on a buttered griddle on medium-high heat. Sprinkle with cinnamon.

Let toast for approximately 3 minutes per side until nice and golden browned.   IMG_3434 Serve with butter, warmed syrup and a sprinkle of powdered sugar!
