Hey guys and welcome back to crouton crackerjacks today, I’m gonna show you how to make easy and delicious french toast. You know. French toast is one of those things. Doesn’t need to be complicated. It doesn’t need any fancy ingredients.
You know. Sometimes it’s better, just to keep things as simple and french toast is one of those things and so without further ado, let’s. Get this recipe started. Alright. First thing, obviously, I’m going to need a batter for my bread, so what a pie plate here.
I’m just gonna crack in two large eggs and do better than I did and try not to get shells in your eggs. No one likes crunchy bits in our french toast. I’m just gonna crack those two eggs into a pie plate and using a fork.
I’m just gonna break these up a little bit before I add the rest ingredients. The reason I’m using a pie plate here is for when I go to coat my bread, it’s just easier to do it in a wide shallow bowl to my eggs.
I’m, going to add in a quarter of a cup of milk, you could also use cream or half-and-half if you’re feeling it decadent. I’m, going to add in one teaspoon of granulated sugar as well as 1/8 of a teaspoon or 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon, just a pinch of salt, maybe an eighth of a teaspoon or so, and just a quick splash of vanilla trying to use Real vanilla extract, Oh and using a fork.
I’m just gonna whisk. These ingredients together just make sure that all the eggs are completely smooth. The milk kind of helps break up those eggs. You don’t want to need globules of egg on your french toast.
You want to smooth batter, so I just whisk that well and let me just talk about bread for a minute here. I am using Texas, toast Texas, toast is just regular sandwich. Bread, but it is actually kit cut thicker than a regular sandwich of bread.
It’s kind of a dry bread, crummy bread, and these particular slices are about three quarters of an inch thick and that’s. Exactly what you want. You want a thick bread for this and I’m. Just using this regular sandwich, bread, you could use brioche if you wanted to or French bread.
You know whatever kind of bread that you like. I just happen to like just plain old sandwich: bread. It just it makes the best french toast to me now. I’ve got a frying pan over medium-high heat. Here it’s.
Actually, between median and medium-high. I’m gonna add in about a teaspoon of vegetable oil and well as just a little pat of butter. Now the reason I add both vegetable oil and butter is because I like the flavor of frying and butter as well.
Butter kind of has a natural nonstick property to it, but the vegetable oil raises the burning point of the butters. The butter doesn’t burn because you definitely don’t want burn butter on your french toast.
Well, maybe you do, but I don’t, so that’s. Why I do both and you want to make sure that your butter and oil are hot before you add in your first piece of french toast. Otherwise, your french toast is gonna stick and you don’t want it to stick, and you know when it’s ready when the solids the milk solids in the butter start to brown.
I don’t know how well you can see this in the video, but they’re, just starting to turn golden. That is the exact time that your pan is ready for your french toast. So what I’m gonna do is just kind of mix up.
My French toast my batter mixture a little bit here, make sure that the cinnamon isn’t. You know, sticking to the bottom and duck your bread just really quickly. On one side flip it over get it coated.
On the other side, let it drip a little bit and then add that to your pan now, a lot of recipes for French toast call for you to soak the bread. I do not like soaked bread for french toast, maybe you do I don’t.
I, like my french, toast to not be custardy. I like it to still be bread in the center, so I just do a light coat on both sides and I’m just gonna. Let this go for a couple minutes until it gets nice and golden brown on the bottom.
Don’t be tempted to move your bread around. You know just let the pan do its work, but the heat do its work. You know when you’re, getting ready to flip when the bubbles around the outside get a little smaller and they don’t pop so aggressively so go ahead and take a peek make sure that it is nice and golden brown and Then you can go ahead and flip it over and cook it on the other side again just cook it for a minute or two just until those bubbles around the outside kind of simmer down, and then you can go ahead and remove that off to the plate.
Add just a little bit more butter and vegetable oil to your pan between each slice and continue frying up the rest of your french toast, and this mixture using two eggs will do for me personally. Six pieces of Texas toast, which is just perfect for me, and my roommate, so yeah just go ahead and keep french toasting all of your bread pieces and then you can go ahead and or some delicious maple syrup right over top.
If you’re feeling extra decadent, that’s, the top with a little bit of powdered sugar, if you’d like you, can serve these with fried eggs and bacon on the side or if you want just like a Little bowl of fresh fruit would be delicious, but yeah, like I said.
Sometimes it’s better. Just to keep things simple and french toast is one of those things so go ahead and give this recipe a try.
