Easy French Toast
So Taylor and I are moving. More on that later…but as part of this pre-move-prep, I’ve been purging a TON of books. And (sadly) cookbooks. I have a cookbook addiction problem but also (ironically) a cookbook utilization problem. So it’s tiem to fix that. Oddly enough though, in my purging I almost donated a book with the most wonderful (and simple) French toast recipe. Luckily I salvaged it just in time to whip this up for my mother-in-law and brother-in-law when they came over for brunch on Saturday. Yes, this is simple, but just that good. Per usually, I’ll offer a sweet + simple recipe as well as the option to get fancy if you’re into that kinda thing.
- 1 loaf of sourdough bread (or other bread that you prefer). You want it to be sturdy + pretty hearty so it holds up. Day old bread is good too
- 3 eggs (pastured is preferred!)
- 2 ½ cups of nut milk (I used homemade cashew and it turned out just dandy)
- coconut oil or ghee for frying bread
- maple syrup for serving
The fancy ingredients:
- chia seeds or hemp seeds
- sliced fresh fruit (I used bananas and they were perfection)
- Cut bread into ½ inch thick slices
- Whisk eggs and milk together and pour into a large (but shallow if you have it) bowl
- Add enough ghee or coconut oil to coat the bottom of a medium sauce pan and heat over medium-high heat
- Dip bread in egg/milk mixture and let it soak it up on each side for about 30 seconds/side. (you can also cram as many slices as you’d like into the bowl). Try for super moist but not soggy.
- Fry bread until golden brown on each side
- Serve with maple syrup and extra fancy fixins!
