Simple French Toast

I love French toast. It’s crazy simple to make, and yields tasty results. All you need is a few kitchen staples like bread, milk, eggs, sugar, and cinnamon. Perfect for lazy mornings. Or evenings. This is a regular dinner at our house.

Make sure to soak the bread in the egg mixture thoroughly, but don’t let it sit for too long, otherwise it will fall apart. Also, don’t be afraid to add other spices and flavors into this recipe. Sometimes I add nutmeg and replace the milk with eggnog for a special Christmas treat, or put in a few tablespoons of pumpkin and a teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice for a taste of Autumn. But I have a feeling many people aren’t thinking about Christmas and Fall. I’m so ready for summer.

It’s still February. Help.

Yum. The weird things in the back are vegetarian sausage patties, if you were wondering. 

  • 4 large eggs
  • 2/3 cup milk of choice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 tablespoons sugar or maple syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 6-8 slices bread

Directions:

  1. Whisk everything but the bread in a shallow bowl. Soak a piece of bread in the mixture for about one minute, or until both sides are covered. Place on an oiled pan and cook over medium heat until both sides are golden brown. Keep the cooked toast in  a warm oven at 200 degrees F.
  2. Cover with maple syrup. Or powdered sugar. Or peanut butter. Whatever floats your French toast boat.

Too easy, right? The hardest part is not eating too much.

Good luck.
