Beautifully Simple French Toast

French toast is one of my favorite breakfast dishes in the whole world. When I was little, my mom used to make us French toast all the time.

And, since I always wanted to be just like my mom, I’d help her in the kitchen (and by that I mean I’d make a mess and often burn whatever she charged me with watching). That’s how I learned the basics of French toast cooking.

As I’ve had time to experiment on my own, I’ve found extra ingredients that I can add to spice it up a little bit. You can make yours as fancy or as simple as you want.

Sometimes I’ll add some pumpkin pie spice to my mix to make the French toast a little more “fall” festive! You could add some strawberries on top in the summer time too, my husband love when I do that. You could also add some honey in for extra sweetness.

But even at it’s most basic, this recipe is delicious. It’s not fancy, there are no exotic or mysterious ingredients. It’s beautifully simple, anyone can make it!

Guys, if you’re looking to impress your lady with breakfast in bed, this should definitely be your go-to. French toast with a few slices of bacon and a little fruit salad on the side. You’ll have one happy lady, I guarantee it.

Oh, don’t forget the coffee!

Enjoy!

Instructions
  1. Beat 2 eggs in a shallow square container (I use a rectangle Tupperware dish). Add milk, vanilla extract, cinnamon and brown sugar.
  2. Spray a griddle or pan with non-stick cooking spray. Heat griddle or pan on medium  high heat. You'll know the pan is hot enough when you sprinkle a few drops of water and the pan sizzles and water quickly disappears. Then turn the heat down to medium.
  3. Depending on the size of your griddle or pan, take 2 - 3 slices of bread and thoroughly drench both sides in the wet mixture. Place bread on the griddle or pan and let it cook for about 3-4 minutes.
  4. Flip the bread to the other side and continue cooking another 3-4 minutes. If the bread is still soggy (or if you like it a little more "well done") continue flipping bread until desired doneness.
  5. When each slice is done cooking, place them on a plate next to the stove so they stay warm and continue cooking as many servings as necessary. If you run out of wet mix you can always make more and continue cooking. Top with powdered sugar or syrup and serve warm.
