French toast is an easy and delicious breakfast dish that can be made with a variety of ingredients. Its also a great way to use up leftover bread, especially if you have some stale bread laying around in the fridge. French toast is super easy to make, but here are the main things you need to remember when making it:
This recipe requires the following ingredients:
- bread (french or brioche)
- salt and pepper, to taste
- butter, to grease the pan and cook the toast in. If you want to be fancy, you can use clarified butter, which will give your french toast an added layer of flavor. If you do this though make sure that its not too hot when you add the bread or else it will burn!
- Mix the eggs, milk and vanilla together.
- Dip bread into egg mixture.
- Fry on both sides until golden brown in a pan with oil.
- Serve warm with syrup!
French toast is a great thing to make when you have leftover bread.
French toast is a great thing to make when you have leftover bread. It can be made with fresh or stale bread, frozen and thawed bread, or even soaked in milk or egg.
If your kitchen is anything like mine, you probably dont always have the right ingredients on hand—and thats okay! French toast doesnt need many ingredients at all. Just some eggs (or egg substitute), milk (or almond milk), cinnamon, vanilla extract and salt are needed for this recipe; everything else is optional but recommended if its available.
French toast makes a great breakfast because it tastes delicious hot out of the pan, cold from being refrigerated overnight and reheated in the morning (for those who have time for that kind of thing). It pairs well with berries or sliced banana when served warm from the pan; on top of yogurt parfaits when chilled overnight; or even wrapped around sausages for an easy breakfast sandwich with no messy frying required!
Its a good idea to use a whisk to mix the eggs, milk, and cinnamon together. If youre using whole wheat bread, make sure that its completely dried out before starting this recipe. If you dont have any leftover bread on hand, then go ahead and pick up some from your local grocery store!
