- 1 cup half-and-half
- 3 large eggs
- 2 tablespoons honey, warmed in microwave for 20 seconds
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 8 thick (1-inch) slices day-old italian bread loaf
- 4 tablespoons butter
- Cinnamon to taste
- Confectioners Sugar (optional)
In medium size mixing bowl, whisk together the half-and-half, eggs, honey, and salt. You may do this the night before. When ready to cook, pour custard mixture into a pie pan and set aside.
Over medium-low heat, melt 1 tablespoon of butter in a 10-inch nonstick saute pan. Place 2 slices of bread at a time into the pan and cook until golden brown, approximately 2 to 3 minutes per side. Remove from pan and place on rack in oven for 5 minutes. Repeat with all 8 slices. Sprinkle with cinnamon and powdered sugar, then serve immediately with maple syrup, whipped cream or fruit.
My mouth is watering! I love this recipe so much. You'll have to go grab that 49 cent day old bread today :)
