French Toast – Delicious!
I seem to have a lot of favorites when it comes to eating breakfast! French toast is another one of my all-time favorites so this particular french toast recipe is going to be one that’s simple, or in other words for kids as well as teens. When I asked my 9-year-old grandson what some of his favorite breakfast foods were, simple French Toast was listed in the top 3 (blueberry muffins was first as he just had some that very morning, and pancakes came in at a quick third). A French Toast breakfast is always a treat! It’s so easy to make a simple French Toast recipe that not only tastes delicious, you can add your own flair to it and make it something special. (After you practice a few times, maybe you can make it for mom and/or dad sometime as a surprise. It’ll definitely score you some brownie points!)
French Toast Recipe
The following French Toast recipe is one that both kids and teens will love! It’s simple yet has a lot of flavor, and is really easy to make. Ingredients: 3 large (cage-free) eggs 1/4 tsp of vanilla a dash of cinnamon a dash of sugar Directions: Heat a pan on medium heat. Add a little butter to cover the bottom of the pan so the French Toast bread won’t stick. (Olive oil works too, just not as well as good old-fashioned butter!) Add all ingredients together and mix well. Dip the bread of your choosing into the egg mixture and let the excess drip off, and then quickly and gently place into the pan. Cook for about 4 to 5 minutes per side. You’ll know when it’s done when it turns a beautiful golden color. If you like you food more on the well-done side, simply cook for an additional minute or two. Place on a plate and proceed to make it your very own by adding any and all of your favorite toppings! Powdered sugar, fruit, nuts, and syrups are some of the more popular French Toast toppings.
If you’re eating French Toast, syrupis a must! Some people like just a little drizzle while others like to drench their French Toast into their favorite syrup (watch your calories!).
When it comes to choosing the type of bread you want to use when you make your French Toast recipe, you can surely use your current, favorite bread. Know that the bread should be thick/strong enough so it doesn’t fall apart when you put it into the egg mixture. Leaving the bread out for an hour or so so that it gets a little dry will help keep it together. A few breads that are great for making French Toast include sourdough bread, whole-wheat/grain bread, brioche bread, and cinnamon bread. Or try banana bread for a whole new experience! There’s also French Toast bread, which most stores sell that is made specifically for French Toast as the slices are cut extra thick.
