French toast is one of those things EVERYONE knows how to make, and everyone has their own way of making it. I always thought my grandma made the best french toast, because she used fresh Italian bread, eggs and a splash of milk. I make it similar to hers, but I have added a couple of ingredients over the years. This is how I make mine.
- Eggs (6 eggs make approx. 6 slices of french toast)
- Splash of milk
- Teaspoon of Vanilla
- 1 Tablespoon of Cinnamon
- Bread (I prefer thicker, Italian bread)
- Oil (I prefer Coconut oil)
Mix your eggs, milk, vanilla, and cinnamon together in a bowl.
Heat enough oil in your pan to fully coat the bottom.
Dip your bread in the egg mixture, about 5 seconds on each side. Some people like to soak their bread a little more, but I find it makes it more soggy.
Fry until it is golden brown on both sides.
I just like syrup on my french toast, but if you like butter, fruit, or powdered sugar, you can add that too!
My boyfriend calls this the “Perfect French Toast”. We love the hint of cinnamon in the french toast, and the vanilla gives it a subtle sweeter flavor.
If my grandma were still around, I think she would approve
