The Best Homemade French Toast is the easiest most underrated breakfast food in the world. I mean literally take bread, dip it in a simple custard recipe, and toast it in a pan. Doesn’t get much easier than that. We’re gonna discuss the very best ways to make it, then take it even further.
I love my mommy
Even though I am fully grown, I still call her mommy.
She’s the best mommy a Cream Puff could have.
Happy Mother’s Day, mommy!
And a Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there. Hope it’s so sweet!
The Best French Toast
- 2 eggs lightly beaten
- 1/2 cup half-and-half cream
- 1/2 cup whole milk
- a pinch of salt
- To the base for the recipe pictured here, I added:
- 3 tablespoons vanilla sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 6 slices thickly sliced brioche or sandwich bread
- Melted butter to grease the griddle or saute pan
- Combine the beaten egg, cream, milk and salt in a wide shallow bowl. Add whatever additions you like to the base (in my case I added vanilla sugar, vanilla extract and cinnamon).
- Either heat a griddle or a large sautÃ© pan and grease the bottom with a bit of melted butter. Regulate the heat accordingly so you don’t burn your French Toast (I generally keep it at medium-low once the pan has heated up nicely).
- Dip one slice of bread in the egg and cream mixture. Don’t dip for too long (I like to dip about 5 seconds per side). Carefully place the bread in the griddle or pan and cook on each side for three to four minutes. The bread will be golden when you flip it. Transfer the slice to a plate and keep it in a warm oven while you cook the rest.
- Once you’ve cooked all the French Toast slices, serve with whatever garnishes you like including: powdered sugar, strawberries, cream, maple syrup and butter.
