quick and easy french toast

This quick & easy French toast recipe makes for a sweet eggy breakfast. If you’re a fan of French toast but don’t have a huge amount of time to make it, then this recipe is for you.

You will find that French toast is called pain perdu in most French speaking regions, this means lost bread. It is called this as you often use stale bread in the making of this dish. Soaking it in egg and frying it in butter is a way of bringing the bread back to tasty and edible state.

Learning how to make French toast is surprisingly easy as the concept behind is dead simple. The process is typically finding a stale bread and soaking it in an egg mix. This egg mix usually varies from recipe to recipe but the one I have wrote up here is my personal favourite. (It is also super easy to cook up).

Cooking Tips:

If you need to cook a large batch of French toast, then I recommended starting them a pan before moving them an oven a medium to low temperature. This way you can cook lots and keep them warm without over cooking them.
If you’re doing really thick pieces of bread, then I would recommend starting then in the fry pan and finishing them off in the oven. To do this have an oven preheated to about 180°C (350°F) and once the bread is slightly golden brown on each side place into the oven and finish it off.
This very much like the easy pancake recipe goes amazing with fresh berries and cream. Another great combination is bacon and maple syrup but it really depends what appeals to your more.
