Country French Toast


Yum

Country French Toast: Light and tender, fluffy thick pieces of country br bead fried to a golden brown, and smothered in real maple syrup - Slice of Southern

There is nothing better than down home cooking.  The kind that reminds you of your mom's or grandma's food.  It's comfort food for sure, but also the kind that sticks to your ribs and keeps you wanting more!

Our weekends are for lazing around and having big breakfasts.  Especially on a Sunday.  It's something we look forward to each week, so last night I went digging in the family heirloom recipe box and came across a real winner.

COUNTRY FRENCH TOAST

This recipe comes from my mom's Aunt Grace.  She lived in Oklahoma and really new he way around "country food".  Her Buttermilk Pancakes are to die for and you should definitely check them out.  So I knew that her Country French Toast was going to be a winner as well and boy did these not disappoint!  Light and tender, fluffy thick pieces of country bread fried to a golden brown, and smothered in real maple syrup.  It doesn't get much better!

These are easy to whip up.  Just a few ingredients and you are set.  Using a thick sliced county bread makes these decadent and really "country style".  And don't substitute the butter for margarine as it makes a difference in the flavor and end result.

So thanks again to Aunt Grace for another wonderful recipe!  Try this next weekend and you and your family will be sure to want this in your breakfast rotation!

Enjoy!
