Step 1. Beat eggs and milk together
Step 2. Dip bread in.
Step 3. Fry bread.

This doesn't require a 15 paragraph article.

SuperSeriousMan: Step 1: Go to IHOP
Step 2: Order French Toast
Step 3: Smother in syrup and enjoy

IHOP doesn't serve real syrup. You can get various flavored of high-fructose corn syrup there, but they all suck.

My god, that appears to be a 2000-word essay to say, "Dunk bread slices in a beaten egg/milk/cinnamon mixture, then cook them on a hot pan." Who the fark wrote this, Alton Brown?

Use Bavarian rye bread or marble rye bread.
Real maple syrup or sorghum.
Fresh eggs from the chicken house makes all the difference.

IHOP french toast.

That's disgusting. When did breakfast become dessert?

TheOriginalEd: Do it the alton brown way. You wont ever want it another way.

Does the Alton Brown way involve building some kind of complicated bread dehydrating device (out of flower pots, dry ice, duct work, half a Weber grill, and a handfull of bicycle spokes) and then explaining why an egg beater is bad because it's a "unitasker"? And does it need to be begun the night before, and involve some kind of laser interferometry to measure the heat of the pan, and end with a metric buttload of kosher salt being dumped on it and then served with something gross like eggplant-avocado puree?

Simpler recipe:

Make a milk-egg mixture in the following proportion: 1 egg to 2/3 cup whole milk

Add to it: a small dash of vanilla extract and a pinch of salt AND NOTHING ELSE COMMA DAMMIT

Whip with lightly a fork; we're not making a creme sauce here.

Immerse bread until saturated (careful since now it will tear and fall apart).

Place a small pat of real, heart-killing delicious butter on a hot griddle and when flipping it over, add another pat of butter.

Properly done, the bread will puff up slightly as it cooks and is moist (not raw) in the center.

Any bread dipped in batter and fried is NOT French Toast but French Merde.

Sometimes make savory french toast for dinner: milk, eggs in whatever proportions suit you, savory spices (yes, even Savory), dunk bread, cook in lightly buttered pan. Enjoy.

xynix: My granddad used to make the best french toast every.. With a hint of fried egg flavor and molasses. Damn I miss him..

My great grandma made them with thin toast and light on the egg in cast iron with butter so they ended up crispy in some parts and soft in others. Ive never been able to reproduce them.

I've used pretty much any bread imaginable. Sliced pound cake for a special treat.
