Time for another guest post. I’ve had a busy week eating out, so there’s not been any cooking in my house at all. Just in time for the weekend, make some french toast.
Three things to make your french toast excellent:
1) Its about the bread; use something with flavor. I like a very sour sourdough–don’t worry about the thickness.
2) Don’t skimp on eggs– I use one egg per slice
3) Use spice– put the flavor in!
Ingredients (4 slices)
- 4 eggs
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/2 tsp (heaping) cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp nutmeg
- 1 tsp sugar
- dash of salt
- dash of red pepper (if you’re daring)
Over medium (or slightly lower) heat, melt enough butter to coat a frying pan. Beat the eggs and thoroughly mix in the milk and spices. Individually put the bread slices in the batter; don’t just dip them, make sure they’re saturated all the way through. Extra batter can be poured on the uncooked side. To ensure even heating, I like to rotate each slice after a couple minutes. When toasted to golden shade, flip each slice. Top as you like: syrup, fruit, jelly….
