PAIN PERDU: NEW ORLEANS STYLE FRENCH TOAST
- Heat oven to 400 F. Generously butter a large baking sheet.
- If desired, remove the crusts from bread slices and discard them or reserve them for another use. Set the bread aside.
- In a small bowl, beat the eggs with salt, sugar, milk, and vanilla. Pour into a flat-bottomed dish large enough to accommodate a few slices of the bread.
- Place the bread slices into the dish to soak up some of the egg mixture, a few at a time. Turn with a spatula and let them soak on the other side, but not too long, or they will be too saturated and difficult to turn. Gently remove the soaked bread slices to the buttered baking sheet and continue with the remaining bread slices. Spoon any remaining egg mixture over the slices.
- Place the baking sheet in the preheated oven. Bake the pain perdu for 15 to 20 minutes, turning after the first 10 minutes to brown on both sides.
- Serve immediately with melted butter and your favorite honey or syrup.

FRENCH CUSTARD TOAST ( PAIN PERDU)
This is fabulous for a brunch or special breakfast.Pain Perdu, literally "lost bread", is an ingenious way to transform day-old bread into heavenly French toast, fried until crispy on the outside but still creamy in the center.Serve with fresh berries or a fruit salad on the side if you wish. Prep time does not include the time for soaking the bread slices. This can be made the night before you wish to serve it.

Crackling around the edges and crisp on the outsides with pudding-soft centers, these thin slices of French toast taste like bread pudding, and feel especially like dessert if you smother them with maple syrup, jam or other sweet toppings. The key is to fully soak the bread, then cook the slices gently, so the insides cook through without the outsides burning. If the bread starts to brown too quickly, turn down the heat. You can double, triple or quadruple the amounts below to make enough for friends. Serve them in batches straight from the pan, or keep warm in a 200-degree oven on a plate or baking sheet.

- In a bowl or shallow dish that will fit the bread, beat the egg, milk and a pinch of salt with a fork until very smooth and bubbly on top.
- Add both bread slices (it's OK to stack them if they don't quite fit) and soak them, turning a few times, until the mixture is fully absorbed.
- Set a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the butter and swirl it around the pan until it melts. The soaked bread will be really soft, so carefully pick up each slice by sliding your whole hand under it, then setting it in the pan. Cook until the bottoms are golden brown, about 3 minutes. Flip the slices, reduce the heat to medium-low and cook until the other sides are brown, 2 to 3 minutes.
- Enjoy hot, with more butter spread over the slices and with your favorite toppings.
