Level Up Your Average Breakfast Toast, Make It French
Although various sources dispute whether this type of toast really came from France, there is no denying the fact that french toast is considerably better than the standard breakfast toast. It is also relatively easy to cook if people would just exert the extra effort to add a couple of ingredients and cook their toasts in a slightly different way. Indeed, going that extra mile really makes all the difference in the world, making this dish a recommended variation that people should consider adding in their regular breakfast routine. Just take a look at how wonderfully easy it is to make them.
How to Make French Toast
For the standard french toast recipe, you would need, more or less, the following ingredients:
1. For every 2 slices of toast bread that you have, you will need 1 egg
2. Butter or margarine, or olive oil
3. 1/2 tsp. of vanilla extract or essence (although the extract is more preferable)
4. Optional for tasting, cinnamon (1 tsp.) and nutmeg (1/4 tsp.)
5. Milk (2 tbsps. for every 1 egg)
6. Icing or powdered sugar
7. Although optional, you can add toppings as well, like slices of fruit, syrup and jam
1. Place a non-stick pan over medium-high heat, add the butter or oil then make sure that it is spread all over the pan.
2. In a bowl or similar container, crack all the eggs that you will be needing then add the vanilla extract, cinnamon, nutmeg, and milk. Use a wire whisk to beat eggs, making sure that they are mixed completely with the other ingredients.
3. Once the pan is hot enough, lower it to a medium-low heat. Afterwards, dip a slice of bread in the egg and seasonings mixture that you made. Make sure that both sides are covered sufficiently.
4. Place the dipped slice on the pan, then cook each side for 40 to 45 seconds. Once both sides have turned into a beautiful golden brown, it is a good indication that the toast is cooked to perfection.
5. Each slice is best eaten once they’re out of the pan. Sprinkle them with powdered sugar then add any topping that best complements the toast’s overall taste.
