Quick and Delicious French Toast

So I figured I’d try my hand at making french toast and the best way to do this is to just dive in and try it. You’ll need:

4 pieces of bread (thicker, if you’d like)

2 Eggs (I use brown eggs)

Heavy cream (or milk)

Vanilla extract

White granulated sugar

Ground cinnamon

Ground nutmeg

Irish butter

Place a pan on the stove and heat on medium heat. Crack the eggs into a mixing bowl and pour in a bit of cream (maybe 1/4 cup), 1 tsp of vanilla, 1/2 tsp sugar,  1/2 tsp cinnamon, and 1/4 tsp nutmeg. Beat well until blended. Place a knob of Irish butter into the preheated pan and melt. Dip the slices of bread into the mixture so that all sides are coated. Place the bread, 2 slices at a time, into the buttered pan and cook until brown on both sides such that the bread isn’t soft and flimsy anymore.

Serve on a plate with pancake syrup or pure maple syrup and dust with confectioner’s (powdered) sugar. If you use maple syrup like I do, go EASY on the confectioner’s sugar as maple syrup is very sweet.

The whole process takes maybe 10-15 minutes.

Sláinte!
