You will need:
Bread (stale is fine – French toast was invented to save “lost bread” to eat the next day. I used miche bread, which has a nice, full flavor)
Eggs (about 2 eggs for 3 large slices of bread)
Dash of milk
Whiskey (not optional)
Small pat of butter
Pure maple syrup
Meanwhile, mix pure maple syrup with whiskey to your liking (I err on the side of starting the day with more whiskey ).
