French Toast

Standard

This is not fancy French toast.  This isn’t really a recipe but more a collection of guidelines.

Some mornings you just want the basics.  Some mornings I want vanilla almond crusted French toast and died in chocolate chips.  But some mornings I want simple delicious French toast like my mom used to make.

I used leftover Italian bread though to be more accurate to my memory it should have been sliced white bread. Or, you know, use whatever you have on hand.  This is not fancy French toast.  It is easy and delicious French toast.

French Toast

4  slices of stale bread

2-3 eggs (this really depends on the bread you are using, start with 2 you can always add more)

1 tbsp of milk per egg

1 tbsp butter

sugar and cinnamon

maple syrup (optional)

 

Beat your eggs with the milk in a shallow baking dish or pie pan.

Place as many bread slices as you can fit into the egg mixture.  Allow it to soak for about a minute (if your bread is very thick or very stale you may want to go a little longer).  Flip over and repeat with the other side.

While the bread is soaking heat a griddle or a frying pan.  Melt the butter on the griddle and cook the bread roughly 3 minutes on each side.
