What the FRENCH, Toast?

So, I have never made french toast before. Is that weird? I hear that a lot of people eat it and I’ve always been so intrigued by it, but I always felt like it was a super complicated process. Myth BUSTED! Who knew that it was just mixing eggs and frying it on bread.. Although this recipe isn’t something new to most people, I feel like there will be a lot of people that will benefit from this! Also, this recipe had an extra ingredient that I would have never that of….let’s see what you think of it? Let’s take it to the site:

Ingredients

4 eggs
2/3 cup milk
2 teaspoons of cinnamon
8 thick slices of 2-day-old bread, better if slightly stale
Butter
Maple syrupOptional

2 teaspoons freshly grated orange zest
1/4 cup triple sec
Fresh berries

Method

Beat eggs, milk, and cinnamon together. If using, add orange zest and/or Triple Sec. Whisk until well blended. Pour into a shallow bowl.

Dip each slice of bread into the egg mixture, allowing bread to soak up some of the mixture. Melt some butter (or use vegetable oil) over a large skillet on medium high heat. Add as many slices of bread onto the skillet as will fit at a time. Fry until brown on both sides, flipping the bread when necessary.

Serve hot with butter, maple syrup, and if available, fresh berries.

Serves 4.

Notes:

Alright, so I didn’t have any cinnamon thus I disregarded that ingredient. Also, the idea of putting triple sec into the batter made me think of a few other ingredient I had lying around so I mixed the eggs together and did 3 different types: butterscotch, triple sec, and amaretto :D. In addition to these, I added about 2-3  tsp of vanilla extract, just because I like vanilla.  Maybe it was just because this was my first time making them, but mine were kind of burnty…But that is probably just user error (I realize that I could have probably sprinkled some powdered sugar on it for looks and a little more sweetness, but it’s in my belly now). I’ll make sure to pay more attention next time. Anyway, enjoy and happy cooking!
