Lolo Io’s French Toast

While Mom was in town visiting us this summer, I made French Toast – nothing fancy:  slices of bread, dipped in a milk/egg/vanilla extract/cinnamon mixture and then grilled in light butter.

Mom noted that Lolo Io (her father) used to make the best French toast.  She didn’t know the recipe but luckily Uncle Manny does!  Here it is:


  • 1 egg
  • evaporated milk
  • vanilla
  • unsliced bread, cut into thick slices


  1. mix egg, evaporated milk & vanilla  together
  2. place on buttered grill
  3. grill until golden brown on both sides

Thank you, Uncle Manny!
