Food Geek Friday: Easy French Toast

The past few Sundays, French Toast has become a morning ritual. I used to think French toast was this big, complicated thing so rarely made it at home. Then I discovered how easy it can be.  This version is quick and easy while feeling luxurious. During the week I usually make smoothies for breakfast but on the weekend I like to take a little extra time to play in the kitchen and this is perfect for a lazy Sunday morning. Or brunch, lunch, or afternoon...depending upon how much excess you indulged in Saturday night.

Enjoy!

Easy French Toast

Ingredients

  • Bread - stale is best. Play with whatever you have around the house. I love challah and brioche but simple sandwich bread works just fine too if that's what you have.
  • Egg(s) - depends on how much you're making. I find that one egg per 2 slices of bread works well.
  • Vanilla
  • Spices of choice - I like cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, and a dash of salt
  • Unsalted butter or cooking fat of choice
  • Toppings of choice. Good options include: powdered sugar, maple syrup, fruit, berries, nuts, fruit sauces, jams, marsacarpone, chocolate sauce, ice cream. LOTS of options.

Directions

  1. Whisk egg, vanilla and spices until yolks and spices are thoroughly blended.
  2. Heat skillet or griddle to medium high heat. Add butter and melt.
  3. Dip bread into egg mixture. Make sure both sides are well-coated.
  4. Place in pan. Cook until side is nice and golden brown. Then flip and cook until finished. Approx. 5 minutes per side.
  5. Place on plate and top with toppings of choice.
  6. Enjoy!
