Favorite French Toast

I love, love, love this recipe and would eat it everyday if it was somewhat healthy for me. We usually save this for special family weekends, but it's too good not to share!

Favorite French Toast

3 eggs 
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 loaf french bread, cut in thick slices
2 tbsp butter
3 tbsp brown sugar
1 cup walnuts
1/2 cup ricotta cheese

Preheat skillet or griddle and spray with cooking spray. In a shallow dish, beat together eggs, milk, cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla. Dip the slices of bread in egg mixture and place on the skillet to cook about 3 minutes per side or until golden brown. 
In a small saucepan, cook the butter and the brown sugar until butter is melted. Add walnuts and toss to coat with mixture. Cook for 3-4 minutes, or until the sugar is dissolved and the walnuts are fragrant. Stir the mixture into the ricotta cheese.
Spread some ricotta mixture on each piece of cooked french toast and serve with either powdered sugar or maple syrup.
I love to serve this with magic syrup...I will make that my next post.

Serves 4
