Uncharacteristically motivated on a Monday morning

I woke up on Monday last week with a hankering for French toast. So intense was this hankering that I was compelled to make French toast for my breakfast before I went to work. I was pretty impressed with myself.

French toast with a little maple syrup

TFP’s early morning French toast

  1. Cut three slices of bread into halves. Beat two eggs together with a splash of milk and a teaspoon of sugar or honey.
  2. Dip the bread into the egg mixture and make sure the bread is thoroughly soaked/covered. Don’t leave any part of the bread untouched by egg!
  3. Heat a little butter in a hot frying pan. When butter is melted and sizzling but not burning, place egg-dipped bread in the pan to cook. Cook until the bread is browned on both sides.
  4. Serve drizzled with maple syrup.

You can butter the bread before dipping into egg mixture, for extra butteriness.
You may omit the teaspoon of sugar/honey from the egg mixture, which just gives you the excuse to go heavier on the maple syrup.
There was probably enough egg mixture for four slices of bread, but I chose to have very eggy French toast instead of more French toast that was less eggy. Oh and also, three slices of bread seemed like a big enough breakfast for one. :D
