French Toast Report
Remember yesterday's post about the white bread?? Oh my..... this morning I made French toast for breakfast. It was perfect. The bread is tender... just right for making French toast. I have sliced and frozen the rest of it just for this.
Do you see the little glob of scrambled eggs there? That is what was leftover from the egg mixture I dip the bread slices in. When I was done (I eat 1 piece, DH eats 2) I just went ahead and cooked that and ate it with my French toast.
I didn't take a picture with the butter and real Maple Syrup, so use your imagination.
Here is roughly how I do it:
For 3 - 4 slices of bread, use 2 large eggs and about 1/4 cup milk. I put that in a square baking dish so that I can easily soak the bread in it. Whisk that together and then add just a pinch of salt, 1 teaspoon of sugar and 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg (I use freshly ground!) and stir well.
Then, one or two at a time, lay the bread slices in the mixture. Let them soak for a bit and then turn them over. In the meantime, be heating up your griddle on medium/low heat. Spray or grease the griddle and then put the soaked bread slices on it and cook until one side is brown and using a spatula, turn them over. When the other sides are brown, they are done!
Serve with REAL butter and maple syrup, jam, apple butter, or whatever you like. :) These may be frozen and then re-heated in a toaster or oven or on a griddle.
