French Toast "attempted Pancake Pantry style"

So my BFF is on "house rest" (house arrest..hehe) until sweet Adeline is born. I had a day off and took the opportunity to come over and cook her breakfast and keep her company. I haven't updated this and probably only have one follower left (hi Angela) so here it is. This french toast is wonderful!!!

French Toast adapted from Food Alton Brown


1 cup half-and-half
3 large eggs
2 tablespoons honey, warmed in microwave for 20 seconds
1/4 teaspoon salt
8 (1/2-inch) slices day-old french bread
4 tablespoons butter

(I also added some Cinnamon to taste and confectioners sugar for looks, well and taste too)

In medium size mixing bowl, whisk together the half-and-half, eggs, honey, and salt. When ready to cook, pour custard mixture into a pie pan and set aside.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Dip bread into mixture, allow to soak for 30 seconds on each side, and then remove to a cooling rack that is sitting in a sheet pan, and allow to sit for 1 to 2 minutes.
Over medium-low heat, melt 1 tablespoon of butter in a 10-inch nonstick saute pan. Place 2 slices of bread at a time into the pan and cook until golden brown, approximately 2 to 3 minutes per side. Remove from pan and place on rack in oven for 5 minutes. Repeat with all 8 slices.
