1/2 Photos of French Toast from Alton Brown
Alton Brown had a great episode on toast, and part of it featured French Toast*. This is our favorite french toast! For a healthier alternative, replace some of the butter with olive oil. You could also use whole milk in place of the half-and-half, though Alton would not approve. *http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/alton-brown/french-toast-recipe/index.html
