When it comes to breakfast foods, I tend to stick to oatmeal, pancakes/waffles, and eggs/bacon. There’s one dish I haven’t had much experience with but have been wanting to master for a long time: French toast. It seems so simple, and apparently, it really is. Soak some bread in an egg mixture and fry them biddies up. Boom. French toast.
Well I figured I’d share my new, go-to recipe for French toast. It’s basic, yes – but it’s delicious, people. Therefore, I must share. You can make it more interesting with fun toppings like nuts, whipped cream, honey, syrup, or whatever your heart desires. We chose maple syrup and a light dusting of powdered sugar. Yummmm. I enjoy cooking breakfast on the weekends, and this recipe will become a regular in our household from here on out.
To come up with this recipe, I looked at a few French toast recipes online and decided to mesh some of them to form my own concoction. So first, combine all the ingredients (minus the bread and toppings) into a bowl – then soak the bread for at least 15 seconds each, a few at a time.
Next, throw them in a skillet that is coated with melted butter or non-stick cooking spray. Cook them for a few minutes on each side, or until they’ve started to brown a wee bit.
And serve! Next time, I might experiment with using some fruit or something. I thought this was quite tasty for straight-up, classic French toast though. See the recipe below:
- 4 slices bread
- 1 egg
- 1/4 c half and half
- 1/4 c milk
- 1 Tbs honey
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp nutmeg
- dash of salt
- Combine all ingredients together except bread.
- Soak each slice of bread in mixture (both sides) for about 15 seconds.
- Cook on skillet set to medium heat until bread begins to brown, then flip.
- Continue process until all bread is cooked.
- Serve with maple syrup and a dusting of powdered sugar.
Enjoy! And make sure to check out my other breakfast recipes.
