 ★ Ingredients ★ 

  • 1 egg
  • ¼ cup Milk (more for softer less for firmer)
  • 2 slices bread preferably 2.5 cm slices of French bread
  • Butter or margarine or cooking oil for frying

Savoury version ingredients

  • ¼ tsp Salt
  • ¼ tsp pepper

Sweet version ingredients

  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • ¼ tsp nutmeg
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp sugar

 ★ Instructions ★ 

  1. In a bowl, mix eggs and milk, and savoury or sweet version ingredients.

  2. Heat up a frying pan, skillet or griddle to medium-low heat.
  3. Grease the pan with butter, margarine, or cooking spray.
  4. Soak a slice of bread in the egg-milk mixture and place on pan; repeat until pan is full or desired amount is placed.
  5. Brown both sides bread.
  6. Serve on plates, usually two slices per person, with toppings as desired.

 ★ Recipe Notes ★ 

Hard crust breads are recommended.

Softer breads will create a soggy toast.

Toast softer bread before dipping it into the mix to create a solid base.

The goal is to get both sides of the French toast nicely browned, while making sure the center is cooked.
Using excessive heat could scorch the outside of the toast while leaving the inside undercooked

If you are not producing many multiples of the recipe, it is easier to evenly soak each slice of bread in the egg and milk mixture if you make it in small batches, with one egg and 1/4 cup of milk and two slices at a time in one bowl.
Then, soak the two slices until almost all of the mixture has been absorbed.

If the bowl is small, place the two slices on top of each other, and keep switching and flipping them, so that all four sides will absorb the mixture.

The cooking process is too short to use most raw spices, but some fresh herbs might be very tasty.

If using sandwich bread, a plastic sandwich container may be used for the egg-milk mixture.
This allows maximum use of the mixture, as the container is a good size and shape.
