We have made this French Toast for Christmas brunch for twenty four years! It originally came from the East Coast. If you like your French toast firmer, then cut back on the milk.

  • 1 cup half-and-half cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 (1 pound) loaf French bread, cut diagonally in 1 inch slices
