I don’t usually do breakfast, but I decided I needed to begin. As I’ve been on my health journey I have often read that I really need to fuel by both more so than I have…this means 5-6 meals daily in addition to the water and green tea I drink. I’ll usually have a nice breakfast, a 10am snack, lunch somewhere between 12-1, a 3pm snack and dinner somewhere between 8-9 pm…followed by more water and or tea.
Last week I took a MUCH NEEDED day off work and decided I wanted to make french toast…so I did..and it was good ! No need to go into all the various emotions that go into cooking a great meal…let’s delve into how it really went down !
Thus…Jay’s first try at french toast
Evaporated milk…1/4 a cup
Eggs (2 0r 3)
A few dashes of nutmeg
A few dashes of ginger
A few dashes of cinnamon
Thick cut Artesan/bread (now of course you can use any type of bread, I opted to use a thicker cut than one’s traditional white, wheat or multi grain.)
Mix 2 eggs 1/4 cup of canned milk and nutmeg, cinnamon & ginger in a large bowl…this will be known as your ‘egg wash’.
Wisk your wash well well.
Turn frying pan on medium heat and add 2-3 pieces of butter, ensuring your frying pan is coated but that the pan is not too high or hot.
Dip your bread in your eggwash and allow to completely saturate on both sides…I did a slow 10 second count on either side.
Add bread to hot frying pan and allow to brown well on either side.
Step 6: Once you’ve allowed your bread to brown well on either side while ensuring it does get dried out, place it on a paper towel lined plate to catch any butter residue.
Step 7: Slide your fruit and get ready to plate and devour !
