How to make savory french toast:
In a bowl, mix the sugar, eggs, vanilla and milk. Beat with the help of some sticks until the mixture is homogeneous.
Then moisten the slices of bread in this mixture being careful that the bread does not come apart. It must be immersed with the help of a skimmer and removed without breaking.
Place a spoonful of butter in a frying pan and when it has melted, fry the slice of bread. Once it has browned on one side and the egg has set, turn it over and wait for it to set on the other side.
Repeat the procedure until the slices are finished and place them on absorbent paper in case you have excess butter left.
Serve immediately to preserve the ideal texture. Serve with the ingredients that you most desire.
They can be sprinkled with cinnamon, accompanied by fresh fruit, ice cream, syrups and many other options.

Preparation of French toast: Instructions
1: Mix the ingredients
In a soup dish, beat the eggs with the sugar with a fork, add the milk and mix vigorously until the eggs foam, as shown in the photo.
2: Cooking the toast
We heat a pan over medium heat with a little butter, just enough to grease the pan and make the toast acquire the delicious aromas of butter when it is toasted.
Dip the slices of bread in the mixture of milk, sugar and eggs, on both sides, and immediately with the help of a spatula put them in the frying pan. There is no need to dip them in the milk for a long time, as they are tinned bread, if they get too wet they will break, although it also depends on the type of tinned bread you use, there are very soft ones and others that are more compact and resistant that will take longer to absorb the mixture.
Cook them for a couple of minutes on each side until the egg and golden toast are curdled and the dish is ready.
You can eat them as they come out of the pan or you can put a lot of different toppings on them: sprinkle them with cinnamon and/or icing sugar, with fresh fruit or in syrup, or with a dash of agave syrup or maple syrup, to taste.
I like them best with some chopped strawberries or a banana and a dash of maple syrup, a delicacy of gods!
Needless to say, these French toasts are a perfect recipe to use, as they are the perfect solution for those slices of sliced bread that have been forgotten at the bottom of the package and have become a bit hard and that you and I know nobody will eat anymore.
