Cinnamon-Honey French Toast
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup half & half
2 Tablespoons honey (warmed in microwave for 30 seconds)
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 Tablespoons butter
1/2 loaf of sliced day old bread (try Sadie Rose sourdough or brioche buns!) – slices about 3/4 inch thick, or for buns, just open and use top and bottom halves.
-Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
-Whisk milk, half and half, eggs, honey, cinnamon and salt in a shallow bowl
-Soak bread slices for 15 seconds on each side and transfer to a cooling rack (that is placed on top of a sheet pan to catch any drippings). Let rest for 2 minutes.
-Spray some Pam in the pan and then heat a tablespoon of butter in a nonstick pan over medium-low heat and cook french toast slices for 2-3 minutes on each side in batches.
-Transfer cooked slices to a sheet pan and bake for 5 minutes.
-Remove and serve with powdered sugar and maple syrup.
