Welcome to “How To” on Eating In Bed! It’s hard to learn how to cook with no explanation of the method you’re using. So, this section of the site is dedicated to making delicious food accessible and fun,while introducing you to proper cooking technique!
French Toast is a delicious, and simple dish that everyone’s had some time or another in their life if they’re from America. All you need are Eggs and Bread, but a lot of people make their own variations involving cinnamon, or vanilla, or brown sugar. Though it’s only two ingredients, you can do a lot with French Toast. You can use fresh bread for a softer toast, or you can use day old bread(recommended) for a firmer bread with meatier texture, you can add cinnamon, vanilla, brown sugar. You can stuff them with cream cheese, you can roll them up with fruit inside like a French Toast Crepe, the variations are wild. That’s why I decided to do my own How To on French Toast, well. . . I also read an article on ProBlogger.net that said you should never write an article on French Toast because there’s 2.54 million pages on it and no one will see it, and I’m not one to be left out, so here’s mine!
HOW TO MAKE FRENCH TOAST
- 2 Slices of day old French Bread (the thicker the better)
- 2 Large Eggs
- 2 Tbsp Milk
- 1 Tsp Vanilla
- 1/2 Tsp Cinnamon
- 1 Tsp Powdered Sugar
- 1/2 Tbsp Butter
- 1 Tbsp Maple Syrup
- 3 Fresh Strawberries (Cut off the tops and slice them vertically)
- Combine the milk, eggs, vanilla, and cinnamon
- Heat a pan to medium high heat, add the butter
- Dredge each slice of bread in the egg mixture then throw them in the pan, make sure they’re not touching
- Lower heat to medium and cook for 3 minutes, or until the bottom is browned
- Flip the toast slices
- Cook another 2-3 minutes until the bottom is browned
- Place them on a plate and top with strawberries
- Drizzle Maple Syrup then sprinkle the powdered sugar over them
This is how I make my French Toast, and I hope it’ll become a family tradition for you. Growing up you could count on my mom to make 3 meals on any given weekday morning, they were: French Toast, Cream Chipped Beef, or an Egg Sandwich. After a while I got sick of French Toast, but my appreciation for it is growing again and I’m probably going to try the crepe idea stated above! You may have noticed I didn’t use any salt, but I used salted butter, if you really need it you can add it, but I like it the way it is.
