French Toast

Hello! How have you been?

It’s been crazy here. It’s finals in school and they are working us to death… I cannot believe I found time to post this, let alone cook anything for this post. 🙂

I decided I’d cook something quick, so I made french toast for myself and my family. The brilliant part of french toast is you can take the bread you want to use and some cookie cutters and cut shapes to make french toast out of. This morning I decided to make my siblings heart-shaped french toast.

All you have to do is figure out where you want to cut it through, then shake while pressing down.  If you do not want a shape, just cut it diagonally or horizontally.

Any leftover bread can be used so do not throw it away.

Begin by whisking an egg or two. My rule is 6 eggs for every 10 pieces of bread(or twenty halves).

Whisked eggs

Add a scant 1/8 cup cinnamon for every 2 eggs. Also add a 1/2 tablespoon vanilla, a tablespoon or two of milk, and a tablespoon of sugar. To be more clear, let me give you an example. For 2 eggs, it would make around 3 pieces of bread, 1/8 cup cinnamon, 1/2 tablespoon vanilla, 1 tablespoon milk and 1 tablespoon sugar. For 6 eggs, it would make around 10 pieces of bread, around 1/3 cup of cinnamon, 1 1/2 tablespoons of vanilla, 4 tablespoons milk, 3 tablespoons sugar.

That is my french toast ‘base’. Feel free to substitute ingredients or add whatever feels necessary here. 🙂

From here, all you are doing is the actual cooking.

Melt butter in a large pan on medium low heat.

Butter pan

Dip bread into egg mixture. Flip to coat. I recommend using your fingers so it doesn’t fall apart.

Drop into pan.

Flip every couple of minutes until you can’t see any raw egg.

And tada!

As for the ‘leftover’ bread, dip into the egg mixture and shape when dropping onto pan.

Shape french toast crumbs.

And now you have french toast! 🙂

Too cute!
