Directions

1I’m going to need a batter for my bread so what a pie plate here I’m just going to crack in two large eggs and do better than I did and try not to get shells in your eggs no one likes crunchy bits in our french toast I’m just going to crack those two eggs new up high plate and using a fork I’m just gonna break these up a little bit before I add the rest of the ingredients the reason I’m using a pie plate here is for when I go to coat my bread it’s just easier to do it on a wide shallow bowl to my eggs I’m going to add in a quarter of a cup of milk you could also use cream or half-and-half if you’re feeling it decadent I’m going to add in one teaspoon of granulated sugar as well as 1/8 of a teaspoon or quarter teaspoon of cinnamon just a pinch of salt. maybe an eighth of a teaspoon or so and just a quick splash.

2I’m just going to whisk these ingredients together just make sure that all the eggs are completely smooth the milk kind of helps break up those eggs you don’t want to need globules of egg on your french toast you want a smooth batter so I just whisk that well and let me just talk about bread for a minute here I am using Texas toast Texas toast is just regular sandwich bread but it is actually kit cut thicker than a regular sandwich bread it’s kind of a dry bread crummy bread and these particular slices are about three quarters of an inch thick and that’s exactly what you want you want a thick bread for this I’m just using this regular sandwich bread you could use brioche if you wanted to or French bread you know whatever kind of bread that you like I just happen to like just plain old sandwich bread it just it makes the best french toast to me now I’ve got a frying pan over medium-high heat here it’s actually between medium and medium-high.

3I’m going to add in about a teaspoon of vegetable oil as well as just a little pat of butter now the reason I add both vegetable oil and butter is because I like the flavor of frying and butter as well butter kind of has a natural nonstick property to it but the vegetable oil raises the burning point of the butters the butter doesn’t burn because you definitely don’t want burned butter on your french toast well maybe you do but I don’t so that’s why I do both and you want to make sure that your butter and oil are hot before.

4you add in your first piece of french toast otherwise your french toast is going to stick and you don’t want it to stick and you know when it’s ready when the solids the milk solids in the butter start to brown I don’t know how well you can see this in the video but they’re just starting to turn golden that is the exact time that your pan is ready for your french toast so what I’m going to do is just kind of mix up my french toast my batter mixture a little bit here make sure that the cinnamon isn’t you know sinking to the bottom and dump your bread just really quickly on one side flip it over get it coated on the other side let it drip a little bit and then add that to your pan now a lot of recipes for French toast.

5You to soak the bread I do not like soaked bread for French toast maybe you do I don’t I like my french toast to not be custardy I like it to still be bread in the center. so I just do a light coat on both sides and I’m just going to let this go for a couple minutes until it gets nice and golden brown on the bottom don’t be tempted to move your bread around you know just let the pan do its work but the heat do its work you know when you’re getting ready to flip when the bubbles around the outside get a little smaller and they don’t pop so aggressively so go ahead and take a peek make sure that it is nice and golden brown and then.

6You can go ahead and flip it over and cook it on the other side again just cook it for a minute or two just until those bubbles around the outside kind of simmer down and then you can go ahead and remove that off to the plate add just a little bit more butter and vegetable oil to your pan between each slice and continue frying up the rest of your french toast and this mixture using two eggs will do for me personally six pieces of Texas toast which is just perfect for me and my roommate so yeah just go ahead and keep french toasting all of your bread pieces and then you can go ahead.

7Some delicious maple syrup right over top if you’re feeling extra decadent that’s the top with a little bit of powdered sugar if you’d like you can serve these with fried eggs and bacon on the side or if you want just like a little bowl of fresh fruit would be delicious.
