French toast is a morning classic in the United States, despite its name, and is becoming increasingly popular in Canada. We show you how to cook French toast at home.
In North America, what we term French toast is known as French toast. Simple to make: whisk up eggs and milk, then dip stale bread, rolls, or pieces of toast in it and fry in a pan. Here's a step-by-step guide to the basic recipe!
Ingredients for French toast
- two eggs
- 200 milliliters milk
- 2 teaspoons vanilla sugar
- 6 pieces of day-old white bread, dipped in butter for frying
- Dusting sugar (powdered)
French toast preparation
- In a mixing bowl, combine the eggs, milk, and vanilla sugar.
- To soak the bread pieces, dip them in the egg-milk mixture and drain for a few moments.
- In a skillet, melt the butter or margarine and fry the French toast in batches until golden brown, about 4 minutes per side.
- Place the bread on a platter and dust with powdered sugar, cutting through if necessary. Serve right away.
- Many variants on a single recipe
The following is a basic French toast recipe that can be tweaked as needed:
You might, for example, use maple syrup or honey instead of powdered sugar.
Others add a dash of cinnamon to their toast or top it with nuts and berries (raspberries, strawberries, or blueberries, for example). Here's a vegan dish for you to try:
- Put bananas on the slice of bread and sprinkle chocolate cream on top if you want it sweeter. With ham and cheese, French toast becomes spicy.
- Asparagus with French toast is another healthy alternative.
- Breakfast is transformed into dessert with our chocolate French toast with vanilla ice cream. As you can see, yo-yoing has virtually no bounds.
