Basic French Toast
To make basic French toast, you will need:
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup of milk
- 1 teaspoon of sugar
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
- 4 slices of bread
For the twist, you will need:
- 1/4 cup of your favorite nut butter
- 1/4 cup of jam or jelly
- 1/2 cup of chopped fruit such as strawberries, blueberries, or raspberries
- Optional: whipped cream and/or powdered sugar
Preparing the French Toast
Step 1: Make the Egg Mixture
In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, sugar, and vanilla extract until blended.
Step 2: Prepare the Toast
Heat a non-stick skillet over medium heat. Dip each piece of bread into the egg mixture, shaking off the excess. Carefully place the bread onto the hot skillet. Cook until golden brown and flip, cooking the other side until golden.
Step 3: Assemble and Grill
Spread 1 tablespoon of nut butter and 1 tablespoon of jam/jelly onto each slice of bread. Sprinkle with chopped fruit and top with a second piece of French toast. Heat a non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add the assembled French toast to the skillet and cook until golden brown and crispy. Serve with whipped cream and/or powdered sugar, if desired.
