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:

French Toast

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.
