French toast, which never really was French, is one of the simplest Breakfast meals to make. Because it is simple ingredients, it is pretty easy to mess it up.
So today we will be going over the basics for this, like beginner mode on a game, so that people who are new to cooking can be able to make it.
Rule number 1!
When cooking eggs use WATER and not MILK!
When you cook eggs with milk then they have a tendency to burn, you only want to use milk in the eggs for certain recipes, like custards.
This may be French Toast, but the main ingredients are eggs and bread, so you need the eggs to be right.
This Recipe is for 4 slices of French Toast.
You will need:
- Medium bowl
- Whisk or fork
- Tupperware or large bowl to soak bread in
- 4 Eggs
- 4 Slices of bread
- 1/2 Cup Water
- 1 Teaspoon Nutmeg
- 1/2 Tablespoon Cinnamon
- 1 Tablespoon Brown Sugar
- 1 Tablespoon White Sugar
- Frying Pan
- Butter to coat it
- Cinnamon sugar (optional, but recommended)
- 1 Banana (optional)
- Cinnamon sugar, powdered sugar, and syrup to taste.
Rule number 2!
When you are using the bread you will either need stale bread or toasted bread!
One of the main reasons people make French Toast when having company over is because the best bread is the stale, old, bread you buy from the store which is usually on sale.
If you cannot buy that type of bread you will need to toast it. If you do not the bread will be mushy and fall apart and be nasty! Having your breakfast resemble the Phlegmoids from the old Chex Mix game is never appealing...
So get it nice and brown and crunchy before dipping.
Next you need to heat up a pan with butter in it and put that on Medium-High.
Now you will be getting your egg bath ready for the crunchy bread.
Crack the eggs into the bowl and mix them. The best way is to poke the yolks and then stir vigorously, like a Wii game, until they are fluffy. Next, add the cold water (about 2 Tablespoons per. egg, also it's 1 egg per slice).
Mix that in well and add the sugars and spices.
Soak the bread in the bath for 1-2 minutes.
Once the bread is filled with the liquid drop the slices into the pan.
Cook for about one minute and flip.
Add Cinnamon Sugar to the side and, after a minute, flip again. Continue this process until the egg looks completely cooked (About 3-4 times).
If you do not know what "Cinnamon Sugar" is, it is pretty self explanatory and obvious really... They sell this pre-made, but I have it made at home and put in a shaker.
(1 part cinnamon and 2 parts white sugar and mix.)
Remove from the pan and serve however you would like!
I like a bit of powdered sugar, sliced banana, and syrup on mine!
With that you should be able to enjoy a nice, fast, and enjoyable breakfast! It has eggs, fruit, and bread, what more do you need?
You have now passed beginner mode, aka "I am only interested in the story and not the challenge and bonus ending" mode. Master that, and more fun things are possible!
Enjoying the noms of their labor,
