Golden Sunrise French Toast

This is definately one to use for Mother's Day Brunch. The Carnation Milk adds a rich flavor. I halved the slices on the diagonal and layered sliced strawberries in between the slices of French Toast. To finish the presentation I dusted the top with powdered sugar and added two whole strawberries to the plate.

    Decadent French Toast

    nikki pals from PALATINE, IL

    I have made french toast for many years-always has been a favorite of mine. I have used carnation evaporated milk for MANY things WHY have I not used it for frencch toast before this I will never know. I think this is the best french toast I have had ever! The evaporated milk gives this richness. This is like an individual slice of bread pudding without the time and you control the amount of liquid the bread absorbs. This is outstanding. Now the family recipe for french toast.

    Rich and Satisfying

    Susan Campbell from GRASS LAKE, MI

    I have made French Toast for years, but never tried Carnation milk in the batter. I left out the salt--we're trying to cut back on that--and also didn't know why flour was used. I tried a couple slices without flour, and finished the recipe "with" and found little difference in the end result. I'll leave out the flour carbs, but will definitely use my favorite milk in future batches. Great with berries, melon, and warm maple syrup.
