I can eat French Toast for any meal on any day! All that cinnamon, nutmeg, milk, egg and butter cooked into a thick piece of bread drizzled in syrup….YUM! OK not just any syrup, I need Mrs. Butterworth. I never cared for the real maple syrup. I’ll eat it if that’s all there is, but in our house it’s Mrs. Butterworth!
French Toast is one of the first things my daughter learned how to cook and she did a fabulous job even as a child. I loved it when she was still living home and would make it for me. So give it a try and cook up some French Toast for one of your meals, you won’t regret it.
In a shallow bowl whisk the egg, vanilla,
nutmeg and cinnamon. Stir in the milk.
Heat a non stick pan over medium heat with
a tablespoon of butter. Once the pan is hot
and the butter melts, dip both sides of a
thick piece of bread into the egg mixture.
Don’t leave it there just dip, turn over,
dip the other side and place it in the hot pan.
Once the bread turns golden brown like the
picture above, flip the bread over and cook
the other side until it is golden brown too.
Remove the French Toast from the pan and
immediately put a pat or two of butter on
the hot French Toast. Drizzle with your
favorite syrup and enjoy!
- 2 thick slices of bread, I use Italian
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/8 tsp nutmeg
- 1/4 cup milk
- 1 Tbsp. butter
- Whisk the egg, vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg in a shallow bowl. Stir in the milk.
- Heat a large non stick pan over medium heat adding the butter. When the butter melts, quickly dip the bread into the egg mixture coating both sides of the bread evenly.
- Immediately lay the bread on the hot pan and cook until golden brown on both sides.
- Remove the French Toast from the pan and lay pats of butter on top of the French Toast and serve with syrup of your choice.
