Easy, quick french toast is one of my signature morning dishes, especially for sleepovers. Get away from cookbook recipes that say you need flour, sugar, vanilla etc. Great french toast is only 3 ingredients and 15 minutes away.
– 2 or 3 eggs
– 3 table spoons milk
(Makes 2 or 3 pieces of french toast)
1. Whisk eggs and milk together in shallow dish or plate with high rim. If you’re fancy add a dash of cinnamon to the egg mixture. Egg mixture should be more eggy than milky.
2. Soak bread slices 2-3 minutes each side in egg mixture. If you have fresher bread it will soak quickly, if your bread is staler you may need to let it sit for a few more minutes until the egg mixture can really soften it up.
3. Cook slices in buttered pan for 3 or so minutes until first side is medium brown. Flip. Cook the other side until the egg cooks all the way through. You can tell because the bread will be less limp and soggy and will be expanded and bouncy because of the cooked egg.
Honey is a great syrup alternative. It’s hard to have maple syrup on hand when you’re a student because it’s pretty single-purpose. Honey is a lot more versatile, and tastes really refreshing as syrup.
Extra fancy topping: Cook some honey and banana slices together to make a bananas foster topping.
