French Toast a la Salma for Eleanor


Wikipedia Image

One of the foods I made for Eleanor was a spiced French Toast. Used to having her scrambled egg and toast every morning, I made her something new. She loved my cooking and gave me leeway to serve her new and delicious foods.

In the next few weeks, I will share some of the foods I made for her. Yes, she loved my cooking.


  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • Pinch Cardamon
  • Dash Allspice
  • 2 pinches Cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp Vanilla
  • 2 Slices of toast or Hawaiian Bread or potato Bread
  • Butter for frying
    Maple syrup


  • Beat egg and milk.
  • Add spices and vanilla. Set aside for a moment.
  • Heat butter in skillet.
  • Dunk each slice of bread covering both sides with spiced mixture.
  • Place in medium hot butter.
  • Brown on both sides.
  • After placing in serving plate, cover with Maple syrup.

When she tasted my concoction, she asked for it many times after that. Blind, all her other senses were enhanced and she appreciated the sensual flavors.

    Hmmm… French toast made with potato bread.  Very unique, I’ll have to try this one too.  On Saturdays I fix breakfast for Marie and I – Marie gets to sleep in.  Normally I make omlettes, but this might make a nice change of pace once in a while.  Thanks!
