A few years ago, my husband and I opened a bed-and-breakfast on our century-old dairy farm. Our guests always look forward to our hearty country breakfasts like this French toast.


  • 3 eggs
  • 4 tablespoons honey, divided
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup milk
  • 15 slices day-old French bread (cut diagonally 3/4/ inch thick)
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • Maple syrup


  1. In a bowl, beat eggs with 2 tablespoons honey and cinnamon; stir in milk. Dip bread into egg mixture.
  2. In a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan, arrange three rows of five slices of bread, overlapping slices slightly. Cover and chill 8 hours or overnight. Remove from refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Sprinkle brown sugar over bread; drizzle with butter and remaining honey.
  3. Bake at 350° for 30 minutes. Serve with syrup.
