In our home, we make French toast ALL THE TIME! Mostly, because it’s easy and inexpensive! We pick up a loaf of fresh baked French bread everytime we go grocery shopping. I always make sure to grab a warm one (feel around, you’ll find one). If we don’t eat all of the bread at dinner, then often I slice up the rest the next day for French toast (tip: only slice off what you plan to eat).
When I make French Toast, I only use two ingredients: French bread and eggs.
I simply whisk the eggs with a fork (in a pie plate) and then dip each side of the sliced bread into the egg mixture. I cook the toast on a non-stick griddle (med-high heat). I find omitting milk or cream from the egg mixture, gives the toast a much crisper crust. However, once I’ve toasted both sides, I lather on the butter (while it’s still only the griddle). The French Toast absorbs the yummy butter, without going soggy! It’s really the most Perfect French Toast!
- 1 loaf fresh French bread
- 4 eggs
- Whisk eggs with a fork in a pie plate. Slice bread evenly to create 12 slices of bread. Dip each slice, both sides, into whisked eggs. Place dipped bread onto heated (medium high) nonstick griddle. Toast for about 1 min or until golden brown. Flip and toast other side. Lather butter on toasted side (and flip and repeat if desired). Serve hot with syrup or powdered sugar and berries. My kids also love these with peanut butter!
