Crack the eggs into a large shallow mixing bowl and whisk well. Add the milk, sugar, vanilla extract, and whisk until well combined.
Dip each bread slice into the egg mixture in the bowl, turning it to coat both sides with the mixture.
Heat a skillet over medium heat until hot, about 3 to 5 minutes. Melt 1 teaspoon of the butter or oil in the skillet, then add a slice of coated bread, and cook until the bread is golden brown and crusted on the bottom, about 2 minutes. Turnover and cook until both sides are golden, about 1 to 1 1/2 minutes.
Sprinkle the French toast with confectioners' sugar or/and serve with maple syrup or Jam if desired.
Variation: French toast can be cooked in a waffle iron.
Monte Cristo- Take the bread and prepare like your favorite ham and cheese sandwich. Then dip in egg mixture and cook the same way as you French Toast. Delicious!
French Toast Rollups: Spread your bread with cream cheese, or peanut butter or Nutella covering all of the bread then put some jelly on top, you can add some thinly cut banana. Roll the bread up and hold the bread close with a toothpick. Place in the egg mixture and cook. Easy and very special.
