French Toast

This is hands down the best french toast I have ever tasted.  It has a nice toasty feel on the outside, but the inside melts in your mouth.  I add an extra bit of honey to my batter- just a dab! This is Alton Brown’s recipe- I think he has perfected it!


  • 1 cup half & half
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 T honey, warmed in microwave for 20 seconds
  • 1/4 t salt
  • 8 slices of stale bread (brioche or challah work best)
  • 4 T butter


  1. Preheat the oven to 375.
  2. In a medium sized mixing bowl, whisk together half & half, eggs honey and salt.
  3. Dip each piece of bread into the mixture, soaking for 30 seconds on each side, and then remove to a cooling rack that is placed in a sheet pan.   Allow to sit for a minute or two.
  4. Over medium-low heat, melt 1 T of butter in a nonstick saute pan.  Place 2 slices of bread at a time into the pan and cook until golden brown, approx. 2-3 minutes per side.  Remove from pan and place, on the cooling rack.  Once all slices are done, place in the oven for 5 minutes.  Serve immediately with favorite toppings.  (I prefer pumpkin butter, blueberries and whipped cream.)
