Broiled French Toast

In addition to being easier it’s also healthier, using far less butter than traditional French toast.  Use the bread of your choice: crusty white bread, cinnamon bread, banana bread, whole wheat bread, etc.  The recipe can easily be doubled or tripled and baked in a larger pan.

I have broiled my French toast two ways with similar results.  It all comes down to your textural preference.  Sometimes I pour the egg mixture into a greased pan, dip and flip the bread and then broil everything like a French toast casserole. The resulting French toast has a softer texture.  Other times I dip the bread slices in the egg mixture, let excess egg drip off and then broil the bread on a greased baking sheet.  This French toast has a bit more texture with a slightly crusty exterior (although it’s still very soft, especially when drenched in syrup).  I prefer the second method with firmer French toast but my boys devour it both ways.
