I don't write many recipes, mostly because I'm a bit lazy. I like simple things. Things with very few ingredients and very little prep. If you're like me, maybe you'll like these, too.
Sorry it takes me so long in between recipe posts. Obviously, I’m not much of a cook! But that’s why I like to post super quick and easy things. I’ve been making french toast for years, and I rarely switch it up. Except for around Christmas time. So I’ll start with my basic recipe of Cinammon Sugar French Toast. Yum!
As with most of my recipes, I don’t measure. So we’ll go through the basics.
Bread. Usually 3 slices for one serving. Today I used thin bread, but thick slices are much nicer to use.
2 eggs (or one really big one?)
Milk, sugar, cinnamon, vanilla, salt
Warm up a non stick frying pan. I turn the burner on to about 6-7. Too hot and you’ll just burn the outside and the inside will be soggy. I’m a bowl big enough for a piece of bread, crack you eggs. Add milk until it looks like enough. If you only have 2 slices of bread, use less milk. Stir. Add a good spoonful of sugar, a sprinkle of cinnamon, a few shakes of salt and a splash of vanilla. Stir.
Ive never done the overnight soak for French Toast. I’m never that prepare for my meals. So just take your bread and make sure it’s coated in the mix. Flip it over. And then put it in the frying pan.
Fry until lightly browned, then flip it over. Same. Transfer to plate.
When you put the next batch in, turn the burner down slightly. You won’t need to cook this one as long. As you can see here.
And done. Sometimes I’ll top it with sliced bananas. Sometimes just maple syrup. Do what you like!
Now this morning, I didn’t use this recipe. It’s just after Christmas and I still have a little bit of eggnog left. It’s super easy. Instead of using milk, sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla, just mix the eggs with some eggnog and a little bit of nutmeg! See? Easy!
