A very simple, but very good dish. I serve it with bacon and sausage.
1 loaf stale Italian bread
1 C milk
Break eggs into a wide bowl; beat lightly. Add milk and whisk until well blended. Heat griddle or skillet coated with a thin layer of butter. Place bread slices, one at a time, into the bowl, letting slices soak up egg mixture for a few seconds, and then carefully turn to coat the other side. Soak/coat only as many slices as you will be cooking at one time. Cook coated bread on heated griddle or skillet, lightly coated with butter until bottom is golden brown. (Add more butter for each batch). Press bread down with spatula a bit to make sure toast is done through. Turn and brown the other side. Lightly sprinkle with cinnamon and powdered sugar. Garnish plate with berries sprinkled with powdered sugar, if desired. Serve French toast hot with syrup.
