Alton Brown's French Toast

I mentioned in my french bread recipe that french toast is better with french bread. So, I searched and found this yummy recipe from the Food Network!! It's not exactly good for you with the half and half, but it was very tasty and it's not like we eat it everyday!! I hope you like it, too!!

Alton Brown's French Toast

1 cup half and half
3 large eggs
2 tablespoons honey, warmed in microwave for 20 seconds
1/4 teaspoon salt
8 (1/2-inch) slices french bread
4 tablespoons butter

In medium size mixing bowl, whisk together the half-and-half, eggs, honey, and salt. Pour custard mixture into a pie pan and set aside.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Dip bread into mixture, allow to soak for 30 seconds on each side, and then remove to a cooling rack that is sitting in a cookie sheet, and allow to sit for 1 to 2 minutes.

Over medium-low heat, melt 1 tablespoon of butter in a 10-inch nonstick saute pan. Place 2 slices of bread at a time into the pan and cook until golden brown, approximately 2 to 3 minutes per side.

Remove from pan and place on rack in oven (I used another cookie sheet with a cooling rack) for 5 minutes. Repeat with all 8 slices. Serve immediately with maple syrup, whipped cream or fruit.

We had leftovers, so I just put them in a Ziploc and put them in the fridge. The next morning I warmed them up in a 350 degree oven and they tasted great!
