1 cup undiluted evaporated milk
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon salt
6 slices bread


Beat egg; add milk, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. Mix thoroughly. Cut bread into triangle, dip into egg and milk mixture. Brown on both sides on a well-greased griddle or frying pan. Serve with soft butter and maple syrup.

Heidi’s Notes:

I used a Hawaiian sweet bread sliced about 1-inch thick (and cut it into heart shapes). Choose your bread wisely – challah or any eggy or sweet bread would be equally good. I like to slice my French toast thick – it tends to collapse down a lot as it gets dunked and cooked. It will serve 2-4 depending on how hungry people are. I recommend a double batch!
