An Amazingly Easy French Toast Recipe

Hey Y’all!

So, this morning I decided that I wanted to make French toast, because I haven’t had it in a while. French Toast is one of those meals that isn’t just for  breakfast  you can literally eat it at anytime of the day. It’s just an amazingly easy recipe. I have found that you can eat it anytime, because most of the time you have everything you already need in your refrigerator; eggs, bread, milk, butter, syrup, and powdered sugar. It’s truly a meal of convenience because all the ingredients are staples that every Southern person should have in their kitchen.

Another great thing about French toast, is that if you’re an egg lover you can make it as eggy as you like. Personally, I like to make mine with just the right amount of eggs. In my French Toast recipe, I  use two eggs and a cup of whole milk, and that will make about eight pieces of French toast. I also like to use regular bread that I have around the house. In this case I am using a honey wholewheat bread, because this is the bread that I typically buy. However, if you would like to use a thicker bread such as brioche,  this recipe works for it as well.

I like for my French toast to be a little crispy and thin, that way I can eat a lot more…lol! I absolutely love French toast with fresh fruit and my favorite go to fruit is  fresh strawberries. You can also add blueberries, bananas, and sometimes I add all three, it’s really up to you. So let’s get started with this amazingly easy and delicious French toast Recipe that you and your family will love!

Whole Wheat Bread for French Toast

Now that you’ve created your French Toast mixture it’s time to actually cook your French toast. As I mentioned earlier, I’m using honey wholewheat bread, but you can pretty much use any bread of your choice.

Always remember to butter your pan or griddle whichever you prefer to use.

Now, I’m going to dip my bread into my mix.

Remember, do not allow your bread to soak into the mixture for long. You do not want your bread to become soggy.

This is the fun part, I’m going to place my bread four slices at a time on my griddle.

You will cook your bread for about three-five minutes on each side, or until it reaches your desired crispness.

Once my French toast is finished I place it on my cutting board, and cut it in halves.
