french toast recipe

  • one loaf French bread cut into one-inch slices put in glass pan
  • 4 eggs
  • 1.5c milk
  • 1/2c OJ
  • 1/4c sugar
  • 2 tbsp orange liqueur (like Grand Marnier)
  • 1 tbsp vanilla
Cover with saran wrap and refrigerate for 1-24 hours. Transfer to lightly buttered pan so they're not touching. Bake for 12-15 minute at 425 or until it starts to turn brown. Add powdered sugar.

raw salsa

  • 2 cans black beans
  • 2 cans corn
  • 1 large red onion, chopped
  • 2 red and 2 green bell peppers, chopped
  • 1-1.5 bunches of cilantro
  • 1-1.5c red wine vinegar
  • maybe some avocado would be good too
  • jalapenos to taste (dice, put in half raw, cook half on low heat in oil; alternatively you can broil them and pull the skin off)

Nice recipes. Have you tried french toast with fried banana and maple syrup? Sounds weird I know but is actually really good.

I'm going to try that salsa recipe for sure...

weird, baked french toast! i'm sure it's good that way, but i usually fry the pieces in butter...

i made the french toast this morning for bexley and it was good! especially with the yogurt that you'll have to ask joseph about...

i don't think it matters whether you bake or fry it - it's just that baking makes it easy to make large quantities.
