It is the new year, we have our first giant snowstorm that is supposed to last three days and we are on holidays. That means brunch to me! One of my favourite brunch treats that I believe everyone should know how to make is French Toast. So let’s go over the basics! I turn to the Joy of Cooking for the basics and then add my own personal touch to update this recipe for French Toast.
Then add your flavourings. I added a touch of salt, about 1/2 tsp of cinnamon, 1/2 tsp of sugar and 1 tsp of vanilla.
I made a stuffed French toast by putting Nutella in between two slices but woah, this was too much Nutella! Too sweet. Next time I will just put 1 tbsp in the centre. You could put jam, peanut butter with bananas… anything you want. Peaches? Strawberries? You get the idea. Or you could just leave it classic and not stuff it at all.
Put the bread in the mixture for just a second, flip and then put it on a either a lightly buttered griddle or frying pan:
You want it to be on medium heat so you get that golden crust! If you do stuffed French Toast I recommend using a spatula to push it down like a panini so it heats and cooks all the way through. Cook for a couple of minutes on each side.
Easy! This recipe calls for few ingredients and if you are having a morning like we are the last thing you want to do is leave the house or stay home and eat the same old boring bowl of cereal. I hope you enjoyed my easy back to basics French Toast tutorial.
