French Toast is a great way to start the day and was the typical breakfast to prepare you for a full day of ice hockey among French Canadians. By Derek Stump, Assistant Manager at Divertimenti.
1 loaf (600g) bread, cut into ½-inch (1 cm) thick
3 eggs, slightly beaten
1 cup whole milk

1. In shallow bowl combine the eggs, milk, vanilla, cinnamon, and salt. Dip slices of bread in to the egg mixture, turning to coat. Transfer to a plate.
