Simple French Toast

French toast is one of those things I never think about because it is so easy.  I always remind myself that there are others out there, especially young growing girls that never learned.  This is the type of recipe that would be easy for girls ages 5 and up.  I made a very short video on the process that you could show to your daughters.

So what’s needed?

  • Bread (fresh baked and sliced, store boughten bread)
  • Eggs (about 1 egg per slice)
  • 1/2 milk
  • Butter
  • Maple syrup or fruit

First crack your eggs into a mixing bowl and add your milk…

Next, you will whisk it all together…

Make sure it is nice and smooth…

Butter your skillet.  Make sure it is only on Medium heat for the stovetop or 250-300˚F on an electric skillet.  I just run my stick of butter over it to melt a layer for frying.

Dip your bread of choice into the batter.  Press it down and soak it in like a sponge.

Then layer it onto the skillet or frying pan.

After they cook for a bit on one side, flip it to see if it is browned on the other side.  If not, flip it back and let it go a bit longer.  Once they are nice and browned on the one side, brown the other…

Serve hot with pure maple syrup, fresh fruit, or just plain.  If you have left overs, you can put them in a container into the freezer or refrigerator for later.  Just toast them and you can have them again.
