Spiced French Toast

Spiced French Toast

Serves 4

This French breakfast toast is simple to prepare and absolutely delicious. Thinning blueberry jam with a bit of apple juice makes for a delicious "syrup." Challah (egg) bread is wonderful but feel free to substitute your favorite fresh bread.

  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk, soy milk or almond milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 tablespoon butter for the skillet
  • 8 slices Challah bread, or your choice of fresh bread
  • 4 teaspoons fruit-sweetened blueberry jam, or other jam
  • 4 teaspoons apple juice

Preheat oven to 200°F. Place a large dinner plate in the warmed oven. Whisk together eggs, milk, vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg in a wide shallow dish and set aside. Heat a non-stick skillet or a cast iron skillet that has been lightly buttered over medium high heat. Dip each piece of bread, one by one, into egg and milk mixture. Drain excess mixture and place in the hot skillet. Cook until just browned on the bottom, watching toast carefully (just a couple of minutes). Turn, and brown other side. Adjust heat to medium, if necessary, to prevent burning. Place in the oven on warmed plate while preparing remaining pieces. Just before serving, heat jam in a small saucepan with a small amount of apple juice to desired consistency. Drizzle over French toast and serve immediately.
