This classic is perfect for a lazy weekend breakfast. It uses basic ingredients, and it’s done in a jiffy.
Here’s half the recipe…perfect for two.
1/2 cup half and half (or milk if you only have the basics)
1 T honey, warm for 20 seconds (I don’t understand the warming because once you pour it into the cold ingredients, it defeats the purpose)
1/8 t salt
4 slices of stale bread
2 T butter
Whisk together half and half, egg, honey, and salt. Place in a pie pan or other shallow dish. I used a small Pyrex baking dish.
Soak the bread for 30 seconds on each side. Let sit for 1-2 minutes on a cooling rack on a baking sheet to soak in/drip. Melt butter in a skillet over med-low heat. Cook 2-3 minutes per side (two at a time).
Serve with topping(s) of choice: warmed maple syrup, whipped cream, fresh fruit, and/or powdered sugar.
