Quick & Easy Home Cooked Breakfast…

Some days you’re just in the mood to have a warm, home cooked breakfast. Pancakes, French toast, cinnamon rolls, you name it; they all sound pretty appetizing, but can take up a significant amount of time and effort.  Well thanks to Pinterest, here’s a quick and easy recipe for some classic French toast. Another bonus to this recipe: it makes two pieces of French toast, so you don’t have to worry about what to do with leftovers if you’re just making breakfast for one.

french toast ingredientsOne of the nice things about French toast is that the ingredients are pretty basic, so you probably have everything you need lying around in your kitchen. Simply whisk together your eggs, milk, cinnamon and vanilla extract, and you’re ready to start dipping your bread! Don’t forget to start heating up your pan (or griddle) while you mix all your ingredients. Although the recipe says to heat your pan to medium-high, it might be best to cook your French toast at a medium to medium-low heat so that you can cook the French toast through and not just burn the coating (I learned the hard way).

If You Know What You’re Doing

french toast dippingWhen dipping your bread, try not to let the bread soak in the egg mixture. Although the recipe simply said to dip and coat the bread, I let it soak in the mixture for a bit and I’m pretty sure that’s what made my French toast a little unappetizing (this was also my first time ever making French toast).

Once you’ve dipped your bread, lay it on your pan and cook both sides until golden brown. Add some syrup and sprinkle on a little powdered sugar (of which there was none in my pantry) and enjoy! Quick and easy French toast that is ready to enjoy in just minutes. Unfortunately, I wasn’t a big fan of the taste, but you already know why.
