How to Easily Make Sourdough French Toast Like Cracker Barrel

Written by Kori Puckett


I got an idea one day when I was in a Cracker Barrel restaurant eating breakfast. They had sourdough French toast and it wasrepparttar best French toast I'd had, so I wanted to re-createrepparttar 113200 recipe at home.

I haven't gotten this down to a recipe with exact measurements, but I usually use:

Pepperidge Farmhouse Sourdough bread slices about 1 to 1 1/2 or so cups of milk 1 or 2 egg whites (orrepparttar 113201 whole egg, if you prefer) cinnamon and/or sugar (optional)

Mixrepparttar 113202 milk, egg whites, and cinnamon and/or sugar together. Place both sides of each bread slice intorepparttar 113203 mixture to saturaterepparttar 113204 bread.

Most ofrepparttar 113205 time I use Pam cooking spray to butterrepparttar 113206 pan, because it's easier and quicker for me to just spray every time to keep it from sticking. But if you prefer butter or margarine, that's fine too.

The first slice you should cook for a few minutes on each side. Then withrepparttar 113207 other slices, afterrepparttar 113208 pan has had a chance to really get hot, it only takes a couple of minutes each side to get it brown.

My Cherry Swirl Cheesecake Bake Contribution

Recently I participated in a local bake sale to raise money forrepparttar local animal shelter. I volunteered to bake a dessert, and I chose to do a couple of Cherry Swirl Cheesecakes.

I'm a very picky eater and have never been a fan of cheesecake, so I had to have my mother be my taste tester to see if I'd done an adequate job. She helped me by giving me a couple of pointers, and after a couple of tries I managed to bake two pretty good cheesecakes (or so my mom says).

Cherry Swirl Cheesecake

Vegetable cooking spray 1/4 cup graham cracker crumbs 1 (21-ounce) can cherry pie filling 1 teaspoon grated orange rind 2 (8-ounce) packages fat free cream cheese 1 (14-ounce) can low fat sweetened condensed milk 4 large egg whites 1 large egg 1/3 cup bottled lemon juice 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1/2 cup unsifted all-purpose flour

Preheat oven to 300. Spray bottom and sides of an 8-inch spring form pan with cooking spray. Sprinkle graham crumbs onrepparttar 113199 bottom ofrepparttar 113200 pan.

In electric blender or food processor container, puree cherry pie filling until smooth. Addrepparttar 113201 orange rind and set aside.

In mixer bowl, beat cheese until fluffy. Gradually beat in low fat sweetened condensed milk until smooth. Add egg whites, egg, bottled lemon juice, vanilla and mix well. Stir inrepparttar 113202 flour.
