Super Simple Batter-Dipped French Toast:
1 tsp. cinnamon
½ tsp. nutmeg
1 c. milk
12 slices day-old white bread
Preheat lightly greased skillet or griddle to 350 deg. F. In a large mixing bowl, combine pancake mix, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Whisk together milk and eggs, adding all at once to dry ingredients. Using an electric beater, beat combined ingredients until no lumps remain. Transfer batter to pie pan. Dip both sides of each bread slice into mixture, allowing excess batter to drip off. Drop battered bread onto hot griddle or skillet until golden, flipping only once. Serve hot, with butter, maple syrup, and fresh fruit on the side.
Tomorrow: Overnight Caramel French Toast. Vinnie’s not invited.
