French Toast

 French Toast reminds me of college... Early morning (I mean the wee hours of the morning) breakfasts in the East Village at Veselka (yum, go for brunch!) or Odessa. We'd order French toast Challah. (Challah is an egg bread). It was so delicious & perfect.

The other morning I only had plain white bread so I spruced it up by making French Toast. Another easy breakfast that tastes & sounds more special & harder than the effort it truly takes to make it!

French Toast
  • 1 egg
  • 2-3 TBSp Milk
  • Dollup of Vanilla
  • Pinch of Cinnamon
  • pat of Butter (1 TBSp)
  • 2 pieces of bread, challah or brioche preferred, white or wheat perfectly fine
  • Maple Syrup, to top
In a shallow bowl, scramble the egg & whisk it together with the milk, vanilla & cinnamon. 

Turn the griddle or non-stick pan on Medium-High heat & melt the butter. When the butter is melted... Quickly dip one piece of bread into the egg mixture, both sides, then place onto the griddle. When the edges begin to brown, flip the piece over. Do the same with the second piece of bread. 

Serve warm with a sprinkle of cinnamon or confectioner's sugar, & a dash of maple syrup.

Serves 1.  Just multiply the ingredient  amounts times the the number of people you are serving.
