Feels like Home with French Toast



With almost 90 degree weather in Thailand it definitely does not feel like the Christmas weather I am used to! In an effort to make it seem like more of the holiday season, Stephen and I attempted to recreate a few traditional holiday dishes that are some family favorites back home. Back home my family has made it a Christmas tradition to prepare French toast on Christmas morning. So it became my mission this morning to make some tasty French toast the good ol’ fashioned way. I have a sweet tooth so I immediately knew a little cinnamon and sugar would definitely be making an appearance.  Along with the basic ingredients including milk and eggs, I added a little orange juice for a yummy twist. My family always adds a little OJ to the mixture and the flavor is incredible but not too overpowering. For being so far away from home, this French toast definitely made me feel a little closer to home during this Christmas holiday. Below is my recipe if you want to give it a try!





  • – 4 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon powder
  • 1/2 tsp. sugar
  • 1 loaf of day old french bread

After mixing the egg mixture, dip the bread in and soak each side. French bread tends to be a little thicker so make sure to soak each side well with the mixture. In a pan with melted butter, let each side of the bread brown evenly. Afterwards, sprinkle with cinnamon and syrup!
