    Heart Quick French Toast


    Breakfast-- On the weekend, I make an entire loaf of bread into French Toast. It takes seven eggs and about 1 & 1/2 cups of milk plus 1 Tbsp. of cinn.. Once the toast is cooled, I lay the slices on a sheet pan and freeze them. I then put the slices back in the same bread wrapper, and then put them back in the freezer. On those busy mornings, pop a piece or two in the toaster and the family has instant French toast.

    When the boys were growning up I did this all the time. Still do it when I think of it for DH, and at the Holidays for the boys..

    We make up a batch of sourdough pancakes & lay on cookie sheets to freezee. When frozen put in large freezer bag, then when we want them we take out what we want & put them in the toaaster. We do the same with waffles. We will be making the french toast in the future.

    I don't have the recipe handy, but I can tell you that it is "Sourdough Cookery" by Rita Davenport. The starter recipe is on page 14. I keep this info hany in case I run across the book at a yard sale. BIL wants a copy. I can also tell you when DH makes the started he puts in tad bit more yeast than it calls for. He lets it ferment in the oven with the light on(warmth). Then as soon as the 3 days are up he makes the pancakes. He makes Sourdough bistcuits, waffles & pancakes. I forgot also makes bread. I have (when I was allowed to cook) made dinner rolls & chocolate cakee, plus some other things that I don't remember at this time. All recipes from the Sourdough cookbook. When he gets home I'll ask him for the recipe for the pancake. By the way He just uses the original starter for coking-do not add anything else to the starter. That makes a big difference in the taste. Can you tell we like a really strong taste! LOL.
