It's been ages since I made French toast. I looked up the recipe in Joy of Cooking, and it says the first time I made them was in 1988. Somewhere along the way I stopped making them, but I've made up for it in the last few weeks.
This little gravy boat was part of my wedding china. We don't have gravy too often, but we use this all the time for maple syrup.
Back then I used honey in the egg mixture. This time around I used vanilla and cinnamon.
Bacon, strawberries, blueberries, and of course, maple syrup, round everything out nicely.
