Directions

  1. Put oven rack in middle position and preheat to 275ºF.
  2. Whisk together eggs, half and half, sugar, vanilla and salt in a large shallow dish until well combined.
  3. Spread almonds on a large plate.
  4. Soak 4 slices of bread in the egg mixture, turning over once, until saturated.
  5. Working with 1 slice at a time, remove the bread, letting the excess egg mixture drip off, then dredge in almonds to coat both sides, gently pressing to help adhere.
  6. Transfer to a plate or wax paper. Repeat procedure with remaining 4 slices.
  7. Heat 1 1/2 Tbs butter in a 12-inch heavy skillet over medium heat until foam subsides, then cook 4 bread slices, turning over once, until almonds and bread are golden brown, 5-6 minute.
  8. Add the remaining 1 1/2 Tbs butter and cook the remaining 4 slices in the same manner. Transfer the cooked French toast to a baking sheet and keep warm in the oven while cooking the last 4 pieces.
