Here’s an easy one for you :) I have no idea if my style of French Toast has any resembelence to the so-called real thing or not, but this is what I love to make of a Sunday morning.
- Eggs: my rule is 2 eggs for 3 slices of bread
- Bread: 3 slices is plenty for brunch; 2 slices for breakfast. White bread absorbs the egg best, but some sort of grain bread adds texture.
- Milk: 1/4 cup
- Pepper, and other spices to taste: as per Indian tastes, you gotta have spices.
The Method to this Madness:
- Break yourself some eggs and sprinkle in some salt. No more than a pinch or two should be necessary.
- Mix ’em up with whatever whipping mechanism you choose – I prefer a fork, keeping it simple
- Add milk to make things a little more creamy & smooth. Also add pepper and spices, and ensure it mixes well.
- Cut your bread to make more manageable slices – halves usually works, though you can make quarters if you want to be cute.
- Start your non-stick fry pan, but don’t make it too hot – eggs need to cook slowly to maintain smoothness.
- Soak the bread in the egg mix for a few seconds
- Add oil to the frypan and drop the bread on. Repeat for as many slices as you can manage at once (build yourself up).
- Depending on the heat of your pan, flip over in 30 seconds to a minute, as the eggs cook to a deep golden brown. Only flip once.
- Repeat for all remaining slices, and finish up by putting any excess egg onto the final slice to give it a thick, almost omlette cover.
- Serve with your favourite sauce. Garnish if wanting to impress.
Et voila, french toast! (sorry.)
