Today I’ll share of great French toast recipe with the basics of eggs, milk, and bread. I found this recipe by accident when I was looking for a free essay writer for my daughter on a forum for moms. The coolest thing is that you don’t need a toaster oven to make them at home, just the pan itself, some time, and the desire. Serve this popular breakfast dish with butter, jam, jam, and syrup. Fruit or berries are also a delightful alternative for serving French toast.
French toast is very simple to make. Soak thick slices of bread in a batter (batter) of eggs and milk, then fry them to make them crispy.
In addition to the taste, the benefits of this dish include the fact that they cook quickly and are a great way to use stale bread. This French toast recipe will use simple ingredients everyone probably has in the house. If you have a lot of bread left over for some reason and don’t know what to do with it, in that case, I suggest freezing it. When you have time, you can always make French Toast with it.
If you like, add a little sugar to sweeten the egg dough, or add cinnamon and vanilla extract to flavor it. For a richer French toast flavor, use thick slices of a loaf, white bread or buns, and whole milk; low-fat cream will also work.
Now let’s move on to the recipe and see how to make French toast at home.
4 large eggs,
1 cup milk,
1 pinch of salt,
Optional: 1 teaspoon sugar,
2 tablespoons butter (for pan),
8-10 slices of bread (preferably stale)
- Once all the ingredients have been prepared, you can start making French Toast. Break the eggs into a shallow bowl or plate and lightly beat them with a fork or whisk. Add milk, sugar, and salt to the beaten eggs. You can adjust the amount of salt and sugar to your liking. Stir to combine. The French toast mix is ready—slice the loaf of white bread into thin slices.
- Let’s move on to cooking, precisely, frying the French toast. Grease a frying pan or skillet with a thin layer of butter. Put it on medium or low heat.
- Place slices of white bread or loaf one at a time in a bowl with the egg-milk mixture. Allow the bread to soak in the egg mixture for a few seconds, then carefully flip over to coat the other side. Coat exactly as many slices as you will cook at one time so that the French toast doesn’t get soggy.
- Transfer the egg-covered bread slices to a hot frying pan. Slowly fry them until the bottoms are golden brown. Flip with a spatula and brown the other side.
- Serve French toast hot with butter, topping, fresh berries, jam, or jam. Enjoy a delicious homemade pastry. I recommend making croutons with garlic and cheese.
Helpful tips for making toast:
Use thick slices of bread and soak it just enough to absorb the egg mixture, but not so much that it becomes rich. When making French toast, you can use coconut oil instead of butter. The amount needed will depend on the size of the pan. Use just enough to cover the bottom.
If you are serving the French toast all at once, keep the fried toast warm in the oven set to 100 degrees while you cook the subsequent batches. To make French toast, add an extra teaspoon or two of sugar, 1/4 teaspoon vanillin, and one teaspoon cinnamon to the egg mixture.
You can use a cream for a silkier, more decadent batter. For a change of pace, use the filling instead of the French toast syrup. Powdered sugar, chocolate shavings or nuts, berries, streusel mix, or fruit compote are just a few tasty alternatives.
You can use syrup, chocolate shavings, coconut shavings, nuts, streusel mix, powdered sugar, and berries to serve French Toast.
Why does French Toast taste too eggy?
The ratio of eggs to milk is essential to get the creamy-vanilla classic flavor that makes French toast great. If the balance is off and you add too many eggs or not enough milk, the finished French toast will taste like scrambled eggs. When increasing or decreasing the egg mixture, remember that you need 1/4 cup of milk for each egg.
Why is stale bread best for French Toast?
In addition to putting soaked bread in the pan immediately, using dry, stale bread is key to avoiding raw French toast. Fresh bread already has a lot of moisture, but the drier the bread, the more room it has to absorb the egg mixture. If you only have fresh, soft bread, dry it in the oven before soaking it in the liquid batter. Place slices of a loaf of bread on a baking tray and place it in the oven (180C) for 10 minutes.
How to Freeze French Toast:
Did you know you can freeze french toast? Make large batches and freeze french toast for a leisurely breakfast. Place cooked and refrigerated french toast on a baking tray, freeze for 1 hour, then transfer to freezer bags and seal. Store in the freezer for up to two months. Warm the French toast in a toaster or frying pan before serving.
