Decadent French Toast

Looking for a new, tasty, different french toast recipe? Look no further. This takes that delicious weekend breakfast dish and elevates it to a level of class some people wouldn't consider for a simple bread dish. You should definitely give this recipe a try sometime.

1 Loaf of Banana Nut, Cinnamon Raisin, or Pumpkin Spice bread, cut into 1/2 inch thick slices
2/3 Cup Irish Cream or Hazelnut flavored Coffee Creamer
1/2 Cup Half and Half
1 Egg
1/2 TBSP Ground Cinnamon
1 TSP Nutmeg
1 TSP Allspice
1 TSP Almond or Vanilla Extract

Combine all the ingredients, excluding the bread, into a large enough bowl and mix thoroughly. Dip the slices of bread into the wet mixture quickly, but making sure to coat the entire surface of the slices. Once coated with the egg and cream mixture, place the slices of dipped bread onto a hot skillet or griddle, preferably set to a medium heat. Cook the french toast and flip, making sure each side is brown and no longer wet before serving.

At this point, you can apply your favorite toppings. I like covering my french toast in a little whipped cream and drizzled with a bit of honey, but you might like the classic of butter spread and maple syrup. You could always slice some strawberries thin, place them on the cooked slices with a little cream cheese and dust it all with a little powdered sugar. Some people might enjoy using the french toast to make a breakfast sandwich using over-medium eggs and sliced ham and melted cheese. You can do whatever you wish to your cooked french toast, just make sure that whatever it is, that you enjoy it and make it your own.
