French Toast

To this day my close friends know that when I say “I made her French Toast” it’s a polite way of saying that I fucked her and it was good. I don’t make this stuff for everyone, you have to earn it thus why this recipe feeds two.The origins are simple. It was a way to use stale leftover bread and make the most out of a few ingredients. Humble beginnings for such an tasty treat.

Mise En Place

  • Mixing bowl
  • Whisk
  • Saute pan or griddle

Ingredients

  • 3 eggs
  • 1 pint of half and half
  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • Dash of both cinnamon and nutmeg
  • 6 slices a of bread, thick cut
  • 1oz of butter

Method of Preparation

  • Whisk the eggs till well blended
  • Add the sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg
  • Add the half and half
  • Heat your pan to med and melt the butter
  • Dip your bread in the egg mix
  • Cook for about two minutes on each side til light golden brown

Notes

  • There are a few tricks to this that are key.
  • First, make sure the egg mix is well blended with the half and half so it will be light fluffy
  • Second, you want to coat, not saturate the bread in the mix, if you do the outside will be cooked but the inside will be soggy
  • Third, watch the heat, you’re working with eggs and dairy so if the pan is hot enough to burn the butter it’s too hot. Relax, you’ll find the sweet spot
  • Lastly, play with flavors. Add some cocoa powder for chocolate French toast or a shot of orange liquor.
  • Oh, and read the labels. Real maple syrup isn’t cheap but worth it. Why bother going to all this trouble only to coat it with dyed corn syrup?
