French Toast Special Treat!
This is a fancy version of the classic french toast recipe. I absolutely love eating french toast and have so for years, so figured maybe it was time to look for a french toast recipe that I could eat from time to time that had a bit of a twist to it so I could make it for special occasions.
French Toast. Sounds so fancy, doesn’t it? So exactly what is French Toast? Making French Toast is easy and consists of taking a slice of bread (needs to be dry or thick so it doesn’t fall apart), dipping both sides into an egg mixture, and then frying it in a pan until light (or dark depending on your particular taste) brown.
French Toast Nutrition
When you eat French Toast, you are eating a good amount of carbohydrates (bread) as well as some protein (eggs), which will help to keep you full longer and thus a good way to start the day. There are a variety of fruits and syrups that are used to add a particular flavor and/or texture to French Toast, which of course are all optional. Choosing a different flavor of syrup or adding different kinds of fruit allow for versatility so you never get bored eating French Toast! Syrups – Pure Maple (a favorite!), Boysenberry, Blackberry Fruits – Blueberries, Strawberries, Blackberries, Pears, Peaches Ingredients 3 large eggs (preferably organic and from free range chickens) 1/2 cup milk (made from cows that don’t receive any type of growth hormones or antibiotics) 1 tbsp unsalted butter (//100healthybreakfastrecipes.com/2011/07/is-butter-bad/) 1/2 tbsp agave syrup 1 tbsp orange juice plus 1 tsp orange zest pinch of coarse salt Sunflower Oil for cooking Your choice of bread (sliced thick is a good idea) –Brioche, Sour Dough, Whole Grain, Your Favorite Directions Heat oil in large pan turned on to medium to medium-high heat. While the pan is heating, place all ingredients into a shallow bowl and mix well. Add a tbsp of butter to pan and spread around well so bread won’t stick. Gently dip the bread slice into the egg mixture (let excess drip off) and then place into pan. Cook for 4 -5 minutes on each side, or according to your particular likeness. When you take the French Toast out of the pan, set it on a few paper towels for a few seconds to absorb any extra butter/oil so it doesn’t get soggy. Place French Toast onto a fancy plate and add your favorite fruit(s) and syrup, and a little bit of butter if you must. Powdered sugar is also a favorite among many and can be sprinkled on top once your masterpiece is complete.Enjoy!!
