Avoiding snotty french toast?

I make a mean french toast...at least that is what my kids say. The only problem is that at least one or two pieces per time I make it end up with a big chunk of egg "snot" stuck to it as I put it on the pan. This makes me end up with a fried egg attached to the french toast. Is there a way to avoid this? I just use egg and milk plus a few spices. More milk? Less eggs?

Add a touch of sugar, and whip it a bit more.

This happens to me allll the time and I do use brown sugar, vanilla and cinnamon. What I do is hold the slice of bread with one hand, as if to let the egg drip off and quickly run a butter knife down the bread to remove all excess egg

I hate gooey french toast. I find if I cook it on a lower temperature and cover it it's not as bad but I found I prefer to make an oven method french toast better. This is a good one http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/fo...ch-Toast-15213

I'd say whip it more. If you don't want to beat the whole mixture for whatever reason, beat your eggs a bit with a fork before adding them. I've never had that problem, but I beat the whole mixture by hand with a whisk pretty thoroughly before dipping the bread.

you can pour the egg/milk mixture thru a sieve before dipping to catch the egg that doesn't mix up--I do this with custard for creme brulee to make sure it is smooth.

Easy fix - combine your egg/milk mixture in a blender before dipping the bread in it.

I have a "hand-blender" thing. It whips the eggs very smooth! Works for scrambled eggs too - obviously - as I do not like using eggs that are not blended properly.
