My mom is not an experimental cook. She would always prepare traditional dishes, nothing exotic. But they were always good. This is one of those dishes that she prepares 'her way'.
To celebrate Mother's Day, I'm sharing it with you.
My Mom's French Toast are very easy to make, nothing special or groundbreaking. But immensely rich and flavorful.
I have no idea how traditional French Toast are prepared. I've eaten many varieties of this particular dish. Each being very different from the other, from the overly sweet to the bland.
This recipe only uses ingredients that are already in your fridge: bread, milk, eggs and cinnamon. Make sure to use bread that's not day fresh because it'll fall apart when you dip it in the egg mixture. It feeds two people.
4 slices of White Sandwich Bread (a few days old)
1/4 cup Milk
1 tsp Cinnamon
1 tsp Sugar
-Scramble the eggs, then add the rest of the ingredients (except the bread) and mix well. Be careful with the cinnamon, it'll go flying everywhere if you mix too fast at first.
|It should look like chocolate milk.|
-Heat a skillet on medium-high heat. Add a little butter when it's hot.
-Dip each slice of bread in the egg mixture for about 6-7 seconds before putting them in the skillet.
-Cook the first side for 4 minutes, then flip to the other side and cook for 3 minutes. Cooking times may vary depending on how hot the skillet is.
-Pour some syrup on top and enjoy!
