RECIPE: Classic French Toast with a Swirl.
From the kitchen at Tucker's Station Farms. A quick and easy back to the basics version of the old Classic French Toast. This one comes with a Cinnamon Swirl! - BARBARA ARMITAGE

  • 1 cup half and half or milk
  • 3 large Blackaby Hill Farm fresh chicken eggs - reduce to 2 if you use duck eggs
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 8 slices Tucker's Station Farms Cinnamon Swirl Bread (day old or stale is best)
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • powdered sugar for dusting

In a medium sized mixing bowl, whisk together the half and half (or milk), eggs, salt and vanilla extract. Pour the egg mixture into a flat bottom pan such as a pie pan.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Dip bread slices into the egg mixture one at a time, allow them to soak for 30 seconds on each side. Place the egg bread on a cooling rack that is sitting in a sheet pan and let rest for 2 minutes.

Use a second cooling rack in a sheet pan and place in the oven.

Over medium-low heat, melt 1 tablespoon of butter in a 10-inch nonstick sauté pan. Place 2 slices of the egg bread at a time into the pan and cook until golden brown, approximately 2 to 3 minutes per side. Remove from pan and place on rack in oven for 5 minutes. Repeat with all 8 slices of egg bread.

Serve immediately with maple syrup or whipped cream and fruit and a dusting of powdered sugar.

2014-06-28 - 1535 Bull Run Road, Columbia, KY - Photo by Barbara Armitage. Classic French Toast with a Swirl. I've always believed that if a dish looks good then it tastes good. I couldn't resist these beautiful Daylilies - yes they are edible. Just be sure that you know a Daylily from an Easter Lily. You don't want to confuse them- Easter Lily's will have you believing in the resurrection real fast! - BARBARA ARMITAGE
