French Toast with Fresh Blackberries

This French Toast is easy to make and can be served for breakfast, brunch or even dessert.  Blackberries were on sale yesterday for $1 a 1/2 pint, just enough for 4-6 servings.  They were huge and delicious!
I bought the bread for $1, too, and it was fresh out of the oven.  1 day older and it was perfect for a soft centered, thick sliced, French Toast.
I consider these ratios for 1 to 1 1/2 servings.  For garnish, toast 1/4 Cup Sliced Almonds in 1 tsp Butter.  Meanwhile, in a shallow dish, beat 1 Egg with a Pinch of Salt, 2 Pinches of Sugar, 1 Tbl Milk, 1 Tbl Orange Juice, 1/4 tsp Vanilla.  Slice Leftover Bread to 1" thickness.   Heat skillet over medium heat.  Add either 1 tsp Crisco or a Non-stick Spray.  Try not to use butter, it burns.  Dip bread in egg mixture and place in heated skillet.  Turn once browned and cook second side.  Place on plate and top with Vermont Fancy Grade Maple Syrup and garnish with Blackberries and Toasted Nuts.
