12 May How to Make a Basic French Toast
Hi everyone! Today is fun day as always and I’ll be sharing something about what to do with that idle bread at home. I am a serious bread lover but I sometimes get bored eating it the normal way, and for some time, I have been avoiding bread (dunno what’s wrong with me these days) so so! I caught my sister’s nanny doing this thing with her bread and I was like “omg! What have I been doing with my life”? She just did some small back and forth with her bread in the oil and voila! The thing looked not only nice but tasted nice as well so I decided to secretly repeat what I saw. So today, I’ll just be sharing the most basic way to make this thing called French toast. The good news about this is that you can modify it as you like but this is the most basic step so I’ll share now.
- A few slices of bread (although I prefer white bread. I am not into dramatic bread versions)
- Some ground pepper (black or red)
- Onions (optional though)
- 1-2 table spoons of oil/ butter/ margarine
Pour your eggs in a bowl and add some ground pepper and salt to taste. You can also add onions and milk then beat mixture together.
Get your slices of bread ready and begin to spread the egg mixture over the bread surface. Apply both front and back. Although some may apply on just one part but I personally would recommend both ways for a fuller taste.
Set your frying pan on heat and line the base of the pan with vegetable oil. You can also use butter or margarine.
Put your already prepared bread in the pan and flip both ways if you have the mixture both ways. Monitor the egg to be sure it’s cooked to your taste then you turn off the heat and that’s it. Bread is ready to eat. You can serve with coffee, tea or some freshly made juice.
Some of the things to you can add to spice it up:
- Grated carrots
- Cherry tomatoes
(These should be eaten raw though with the bread). Bon appétit!
