“I like to use the semisoft, inexpensive french bread or italian bread found at supermarkets, but other breads work well, too. The amount of butter for frying is approximate; use as much as you need. Serve the french toast with maple syrup.”

  1. In a small mixing bowl whisk together the poppy seeds, eggs, milk, vanilla, nutmeg, and sugar.
  2. Heat a griddle or large frying pant over medium heat. Melt 1 tablespoon of the butter in the frying pan.
  3. Dip one slice of the bread into the egg batter, then quickly take it out. Continue dipping bread slices, stirring the batter frequently so all the poppy seeds don't sink to the bottom, and laying the bread on the frying pan until no more bread will fit.
  4. Cook the slices for about 2 minutes per side, or until they are golden brown. Repeat with remaining bread. Serve hot.

Quick, easy and very tasty. Fantastic for brekky or an inbetween snack...



This was really good. I had a real problem with the poppy seeds sinking to the bottom,so I just sprinkled the seeds over the toast as it cooked. I topped it with lemon curd instead of syrup and I think next time I'll use orange marmalade.Yum.



Worked well for breakfast. I used a little more vanilla and not quite 3 TBLS of poppy seeds. Also, I used up some sliced french bread first before switching to regular bread. I didn't think it tasted incrediably different from regular french toast but it was tasty and kind of pretty. Toothpicks may be needed for this one folks!
