There will be mornings when only French Toast will satisfy. Here's the low-down on how easy it is to make. It's also cheap to make because you can buy 'day old' bread for less money.
- whisk (or fork)
- mixing bowl
- griddle or skillet
Ingredients: (for about 2 people)
- 6 slices stale bread
- 2 eggs
- 2/3 cup milk
- 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- pinch of salt to taste
- 1 tbsp sugar (or to taste)
- honey and/or jam (optional)
- beat the eggs into a bowl and add sugar, salt, cinnamon, vanilla,nutmeg and milk
- pour the egg mixture into a flat pan and soak the bread slices. You can completely soak or let it absorb only halfway, depending on desired taste and texture
- heat the skillet to high and melt butter on it
- when the butter sings, immediately put the soaked bread into the skillet
- wait one minute to brown the bread and turn heat to low-medium to cook the inside without burning the outside
- turn to high heat again and turn bread to other side
- wait one minute to brown the other site and turn heat to low-medium
- serve with butter, honey or jam
- stale bread is desirable because it is harder and will keep its shape while soaked
- you can be adventurous and try other bread types - bagel, old pandesal, monay, etc.
- best to do the frying if you have a cast iron skillet
To your French Toast, add fresh brewed coffee, Chopin in the background and play footsies with your breakfast partner across the table :) Best way to start the day!
