Free Tips & Easy "How to" Instructions
10-15 minutes preparation time, depending on how many portions you are making, and you'll have a delicious dinner or dessert, that nobody is immune to!
This article tells you everything you need to know in order to prepare the perfect French toast.
How it is served is up to you and your imagination! The possibilities are plentiful..
The following are the ingredients for 1 portion, so 2 pieces of French toast:
Traditionally, you would let the bread get somewhat stale first. That is definitely one way to do it, but in my opinion, the best results are achieved with fresh bread. The thickness of the bread is very important though! If the slices are thick, then the bread must be somewhat stale, otherwise the result will be too soggy. If the slices are thin enough, so about 1cm maximum (less than half an inch), then the results are really best with fresh bread.
Put some sunflower oil in the frying pan and turn on the stove to maximum. Let the oil get warm. You can also use other kinds of oil, or butter for cooking, but it can make things more difficult. The best French toast is made with sunflower oil.
Mix all the ingredients, the egg, milk and a pinch of salt into a round bowl, and beat it all with a fork until it's even and bubbly. Dip the first piece of bread into the mixture until it's covered. If the mixture is too shallow, then dip first one side, then flip the bread.
The bread should not sit in the batter! It should be moist from the batter on all sides, but it should not be soaked. As soon as you have dipped both sides, place the slice into the frying pan.
Fry each side for about 2 minutes.
French toast can be served as a meal or as a dessert.
A simple, yet delicious dinner is french toast with lunch meat and cheese on top, maybe with tomatoes or some salad of your choice as a side-dish.
Another simplistic variation is French toast with sour cream or cottage cheese. Sprinkle some dill or parsley on top for more aroma and better looks!
Try various sandwich recipes, only replace the bread with French toast (the thin variant). The possibilities are endless!
As breakfast you would rather serve it with sweet toppings, which can be marmalade or honey, syrups or fresh fruit, or simply powdered sugar - kind of like with pancakes.
