French Toast Extraordinaire

This recipe is from Executive Chef Joshua Schwartz of The French Laundry in Yountville, California; one of the best restaurants in the United States (voted #3 in the world). I could not find tomato jam the first time I made the recipe and used seedless raspberry jam, it was outstanding. When I happened upon a jar of tomato jam at a specialty store, I remembered this recipe and purchased it….again outstanding! I guess there is a reason he is one of the top chefs in the world. Note: Adjust milk as needed as different types of bread absorb more or less. I start out with half the mixture and add as needed.
