|The colder it gets, the more I bake. I know it may sound impossible, but if I could bake everyday, I would and I do most days. Everyone migrates to the kitchen, the southern light comes pouring in, it’s warm, cheerful and inviting. I baked a couple loaves of my English Muffin Bread this week and wanted to try making French Toast with it. French Toast tastes great using stale bread. But fresh bread is still very nice. English Muffin Bread is a hearty, thick dense bread full of nooks and crannies and has a great flavor. I used a rich delcious eggnog from our Health Food Store. This week, we have been having so much fun wrapping gifts, singing Christmas Carols and drinking egg nog, I had to try dipping English Muffin Bread in the Eggnog Mixture. I think you will love it too! Perfect for Christmas Morning! Nettie
Whisk together in a shallow bowl:
1/3 cup milk or half and half
1/3 cup eggnog
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon salt
One at a time, soak both sides of bread, then place in a hot well-buttered skillet.Cook on each side 3-4 minutes or until golden brown. Serve hot sprinkled with Confectioners sugar or maple syrup, or jam.

I had a hankering for some French Toast- or Texas Toast as some of you may know it as.
It is so yummy- I can’t believe that it has been years since I made it. Depending on what kind of bread you have makes all the world of difference. I just happened to have some of the Rustic Panne from Trader Joe’s- I love it because it is dense and holey and chewy. It makes THE BEST french toast.If you can’t find this, any kind of dense bread works- actually if it is a day stale- even better!
