This recipe is adapted from a breakfast treat a friend of ours prepared during back-country trips into the mountains. Now we serve it to guests at our bed and breakfast, and it's one of their favorites! The maple syrup, Vermont cheese, bread from our local baker and eggs from our own Bantam hens provide plenty of energy for skiers, hikers and bicyclists who visit our inn!
This is a delicious way to fix French toast. For years, I've used my old electric frying pan to make it. Nowadays, my 9-year-old grandson enjoys making this toast in that same pan. As far as eating it, all kids seem to like that part. It's great for breakfast or for a snack during the day.
A few years ago, at the age of 50, I decided to teach myself to cook. I made this French toast that my mother would serve with grilled ham and sweet warm maple syrup. I was so pleased with the results, I've been cooking ever since!
