Buzz's Super-Simple French Toast


512


I made French Toast a couple of days ago for 4 people.  It's simple, but takes a while when soaking and then frying one slice at a time.


Ingredients


A soft bread, any bread, but the best would be challah (egg bread) with raisins if you can get it (unsliced if possible).


2 eggs for each 3 slices of bread (I did 12 slices of bread using 8 medium eggs)


An equal amount of whole milk for the total of beaten eggs volume.


Salt, cinnamon, butter and serve with maple syrup or honey.


Recipe for 8 slices (adjust ingredients proportionately if less or more)


Once you determine how many slices of bread to use (best to use unsliced bread, sliced about 1/2 to 3/4 inch thick)


Beat the correct number of eggs as above noted


Add a bit of salt


Add an equal volume of whole milk and mix to blend


Using a low flame, coat a small frying pan (big enough for a slice of bread to fit) when the surface is heated with a pad of butter.


Pour enough of the the liquid mix into a deep dish or pan and place a slice of bread into it.


Turn over the bread after a minute or when it is soaked, let it soak and sprinkle some cinnamon on it.


Then put the soaked bread slice into the hot pan for as long as needed to brown it, anywhere from 1 to 2 minutes.


At the same time, place another slice in the deep dish to soak.


Turn over the slice in the pan for another 1 to 2 minutes, and at the same time turn over the bread that is soaking in the mix.


Repeat the steps (including coating the pan with butter for each slice) until you have used up the liquid mix.


On serving the toast, pour some honey or maple syrup on it and enjoy.


Serve with hot coffee, and if wanted, fruit, such as sliced bananas, strawberries, raspberries, sliced peaches, etc.

Although my wife is a great cook when it comes to Chinese food, I prepare western breakfasts from time to time, such as this French toast, banana blueberry pancakes, different egg dishes, my special mix of hot oatmeal that includes a sliced banana, cinnamon, brown sugar, walnut powder, bird eggs (my next recipe to post), but my wife makes a superb soufflee.

Chinese food is great Buzz. If the lady is willing to share some recipes, we'd be delighted to have them.

I have to get hold of my cousin.  At the reunion last Sunday, I found that she knew her mom's recipe for golumpkes (Polish cabbage rolls. A lot like stuffed peppers but rolled up in cabbage leaves). My aunt learned to make them in the only way you can really master an ethnic dish like that.  She married my uncle, who came from a family that had just come from the old country in the previous generation.  Then she persuaded her mother in law to teach her how. My cousin had the recipe memorized but I didn't have a pen and paper.

Indeed! I love Chinese food and cook my own at home, although, I don't use a recipe. I learned to cook the dishes I cook from a Chinese neighbor's Mother-In-Law, and she didn't use a recipe so I just learned to cook the dishes free-style. 

So I would love to see some other Chinese dishes.

Did you see how my wife prepares Zongzi in the comments of the Dragon Boat Festival article on the Discovery Group?

Try the same recipe above except replace the milk with orange juice but half the amount of egg volume. Adds a whole different flavor profile and is great with the cinnamon. Can even add a little nutmeg as well.

Allspice is another variation. I use Allspice in a good deal of my cooking and baking. It is a great flavor blending spice.

Your French Toast recipe sounds delicious, Buzz. I would really like to try it. But, one question......where do you find bird eggs to use in your recipes? I'm way past the point of being able to climb trees to hunt up bird eggs, and I don't know of any place around where I live that sells bird eggs. Can you substitute another kind of eggs besides bird eggs?

Don't know if you have them out in So Cal Raven, but we have a grocery store around here that does have both pigeon and quail eggs, as well as chicken eggs, of course.  They're called the Spartan Stores and some of them are a combination of a grocery store and a specialty market. I'm not sure, though, whether they're nation wide or just a mid west thing.

I have never seen and kind of bird eggs for sale in grocery stores that I have ever been to. However, they may have them in some of the Oriental or Specialty stores, although, none are close around where I live.

We can get bird eggs at a farmer's market around the corner, but it may be a little far for you to get them there.  Actually, I use 6 or 7 bird eggs only in the hot oatmeal dish, but if we don't have any bird eggs I just use one chicken egg.

Yeah.....it may be a bit far for me to visit the store around the corner from you. jrSmiley_91_smiley_image.gif

If I get around to where there is a Oriental or Specialty store I will make sure to see if they have bird eggs to try. But, in the mean time I will make do with chicken eggs. (smile)

What the heck Raven; if we run out, there are always Gator and Turtle eggs; or maybe eggs taken from Rattlesnake nests.  If you gather them, I'll cook them.
