I know French Toast isn’t the most glamorous food to make, or that complicated, but in case I have any readers that are new to cooking, or who have never made French Toast before, I’ve decided to post anyhow.
French Toast is super simple to make and once you have the batter made, you can make a little assembly line for cooking like I’ve done in the above picture. I find it helps for organization.
I made a bit of a bad planning ahead mistake in this picture. Can you spot it? If you guessed the slice of bread in the mixing bowl, then you are correct. By leaving the bread in the egg mixture it soaked up most of the mixture while waiting for the other pieces to cook. I thought I was saving time, but alas I used up most of the mixture on one slice. Luckily I had most of my slices already cooked.
I doubled the recipe and was able to get 6 pieces of French Toast from it. I probably could have gotten 8 except for that batter soaking piece incident.
I followed the recipe exactly (except for doubling it) and cooked each slice of bread for 6 minutes on medium heat (3 minutes on each side).
I didn’t get this particular recipe from Pinterest; I instead used a recipe that I had Googled last weekend at work when my clients were having “Breakfast for Dinner”. Link to the recipe here: Quick and Easy French Toast
To Double the Recipe:
2 eggs, 1 tsp vanilla, 2/8ths nutmeg, and 1/2 cup of milk. This should give you enough for 8 pieces of French Toast depending on the type of bread that you use. I like to use a soft fluffy white bread, but I’m sure you can use your favourite sandwich bread.
I like to top my French Toast with butter, icing sugar and maple syrup. You can use the same and/or fresh fruit, whipped cream or a fruit compote.
