Amaretto French Toast

This recipe was a friend's idea. I served her my Grand Marnier French Toast, which she loved. And then she suggested that I create a new version using Amaretto - her favorite liqueur - instead of the Grand Marnier.

We both enjoyed the result. I hope you will too.


4 large eggs, or equivalent in egg substitute
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup amaretto
Pinch of salt
6-8 slices bread
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
Powdered sugar, syrup, fruit, and/or other toppings, as desired

In a large bowl, beat the eggs with a whisk, and then whisk in the milk, amaretto, and salt.

Add the bread slices to the bowl, toss so that each slice is covered with the custard mixture, and let it sit for several minutes so the bread can absorb the custard.

Heat the oil on a griddle or skillet over medium heat. Place the coated bread slices on the griddle and cook, turning once, until golden brown on both sides.

Top with powdered sugar, syrup, fruit, and/or other toppings, as desired.

-- 3-4 servings (2 slices per serving)
