French toast is such a delicious breakfast treat that is quite easy to make. It can be made with just about any type of bread, but a thicker slice of bread is preferable. I like to use a thick Texas Toast or my favorite is Challah bread.
This is one of those recipes that I have been doing for years and don’t measure the ingredients. While making it this morning I tried to pay attention as best I could to the amounts I was using but nothing was measured.
Bread, thick sliced
Slice some nice bread into thick slices. The bread I used today was a Brioche I believe. My favorite bread for French Toast is Challah, but this was the closest I could find.
For two slices of french toast you can use 1 egg, for four slices just double the recipe, etc. Today I was only making two slices so I used 1 egg.
Lightly beat an egg in a shallow bowl. Add an equal amount of milk, which means you have to eyeball it and it won’t be exact.
Add a splash of vanilla – maybe a 1/2 tsp, a dash of salt, and a little sugar. Mix well.
Heat a frying pan over medium heat. Dip both sides of the bread into the egg mixture and place in the hot pan.
Cook for approximately 4 minutes per side while checking after about 2 minutes to make sure it isn’t browning too quickly. The bread needs to cook through and if the heat is too high it will brown the outside before the inside egg is cooked. If it is browning too quickly just turn down the heat. You can also flip the bread if this is happening and cook longer on a lower heat.
Also pat the bread lightly with a spatula occasionaly while cooking.
That’s it! Just add a little butter, syrup, or powdered sugar. I had a very happy son this morning.
Here is some French Toast I made a little while ago on Challah bread, so good!
