French Toast

My two love French toast cooked by Moi instead of from the freezer section.  The Imaginative One gets a headache with store bought French toast/sticks.

French toast is simple to make and you can try a variety of different breads.  I usually use sandwich bread or if I want to make sticks I’ll use Texas toast bread because it’s thicker.  When I made it on Saturday, I used ciabatta bread for Hubby, Imaginative One, and myself.  I used sandwich bread for the Wee One because he likes me to cut them into strips.

BTW:  Did you know ciabatta is Italian for slipper?

French toast

Stars of the recipe:

  • 1 large egg for every 2 pieces of French toast
  • 1 – 2 Tbsp. milk for every 2 pieces of French toast
  • 1 tsp cinnamon for every two pieces of French toast
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract for every two pieces of French toast
  • bread
  • toppings:  maple syrup, butter, fruit, powder sugar

Steps:

  1. Warm up a flat griddle pan (my favorite) or skillet over med. heat.
  2. In a flat wide pan, whisk together egg, milk, cinnamon, and vanilla extract.
  3. Using a fork or tongs, dip your bread into the egg mixture making sure to cover both sides.  (You may need to let it drip a little bit to get rid of excess egg before transferring it to your pan.)
  4. spray your griddle pan or skillet with cooking spray.
  5. Transfer it to skillet or griddle pan.
  6. Allow it to cook until golden brown on both sides (3 to 4 minutes on the first side and 1 to 2 minutes on the second side.)
  7. Transfer to a plate.
  8. Enjoy with whatever toppings you like!
