French toast is one of the easiest breakfasts you can make. It can be as simple as dipping sandwich bread, even whole wheat, in a beaten egg and browning it on a hot griddle. It's sort of "like" pancakes, but faster to get on the table. It can also be a decadent and elaborate brunch covered with whipped cream and fresh fruit.
- French Bread
- Milk or half and half
- Whipped Cream
- Maple Syrup
- Powdered Sugar
Put a griddle or skillet on medium high heat.
Prepare the egg batter by using one egg for each person that's eating, unless you're cooking for kids, then adjust it according to their appetites. Add a little milk or half and half to the egg.
Flavor it with a splash of vanilla and a sprinkle of cinnamon.
Beat it with whisk or a fork until it's well blended. Dip a slice of bread in the egg mix and use a fork to turn it and soak the other side.
Put a pat of butter on the griddle and smear it around. Then put the soaked bread on the hot griddle. Be sure and put it on the "hot spot" so it will cook evenly. It won't take long before it's ready to turn. It's done when it's the right shade of golden brown. Drizzle with maple syrup.
