Still looking for something to do on Memorial day? Why not start the day off with this delicious buttermilk French toast? The buttermilk adds a slight tanginess to it just like you would get if you use sour dough bread.
For this buttermilk French toast you want a bread with a nice thick slice. Use like a Texas toast bread. I use a thick sliced French bread I can get at my Costco on the bread isle. They are big slices too. not like you would get from a grocery store French bread.
Next is the batter to dip those slices of bread in. This batter is made with a mixture of buttermilk, eggs, sugar, and vanilla extract. Simple but so delicious. The sugar adds a little sweetness to counter balance the tanginess of that buttermilk. Plus, my mom always puts sugar in her French toast. If you happen to like a little cinnamon in there, feel free to add some.
Dip the slices of bread in the batter and then cook on a skillet or griddle coated with butter. Butter is key to help get that French toast nice and golden brown. Plus, it also adds flavor to the French toast. I also love to top my French with some type or fruit along with syrup. For Memorial Day, think of pairing blueberries and blackberries with raspberries or strawberries for a patriotic look.
