There are times in the kitchen when improvisation is somewhat required.
At these times (Ex: you just woke up, crumpled-faced & starving, and can not even fathom the idea of going outside the house to run to the grocery store for milk),
substitutions must be made and fast. Margarine for Butter, Half & Half for Milk, or Whole Wheat "sandwich" Bread for Texas Toast. I made the wheat bread substitution one time to make some french toast, and have yet to look back.
The key is to work fast, as the sandwich bread is more fragile than the thicker Texas toast.
Here is the Recipe: (adapted from Food.com, by Doglover61)
1/3 cup whole milk
half of 1/3 cup sugar
half of 1/3 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/16 teaspoon cinnamon
6 slices of whole wheat sandwich bread
Whisk eggs, milk, flour, sugar, vanilla, salt, and cinnamon in a wide shallow bowl.
Melt a tablespoon of butter on a hot griddle or large skillet.
If butter starts to turn brown, immediately turn down the heat.
You want the pan to be hot, but not burning.
Working quickly, so butter does not burn, dip in a slice of bread to coat one side.
Flip bread over to coat the other side.
Remove quickly, so bread does not get soggy.
Repeat on a few other slices of bread.
Place coated slices of bread on hot buttery griddle.
Cook 1 1/2 to 2 minutes per side.
Should be golden brown in color when done.
Add more butter to cook remaining bread slices.
A sprinkle of powdered sugar, and a spout cup filled with warm syrup...
