- 5 eggs
- 1 cup milk
- 1 tbsp bourbon
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- ½ tsp salt
- dash of cinnamon
Heat up a frying pan, or the griddle if you have a fancy schmancy stove.
Mix all that stuff up there with a nice, sharp fork.
Soak bread* in mixture, but don't let it get too soggy to get back out of the bowl! Fry the bread in a pan. Repeat until all the batter is gone.
Serve with real** maple syrup and butter.
You may, if you cannot finish it all, refrigerate or freeze the rest for later.
*Good bread, of course. I recommend a hearty multigrain or, for variety, cinnamon/raisin English muffins.
**Yes, 100% real maple syrup, preferably from Vermont. Use of Mrs. Butterworth's may involve a fine and/or imprisonment. The same goes for margarine. This is food, gosh darn it!
