Make Your Own French Toast

a plate with french toast

Hey all,

Last time I wrote, I told you all about how I use old bread to make bread pudding. There’s another thing you can also do with your bread if it’s sliced bread. I also like to make french toast. French toast is not really that hard to make.

What you need for making french toast with your older bread is:

  • bread slices
  • 1-2 cups of milk
  • 3 eggs
  • cinnamon if you want it.
  • Oil or grease of your choice to grease a frying pan

    French toast is easy to make at home

You’ll also need:

  • a mixing bowl
  • a fork or a mixer. Personally, I use a fork. It’s a lot less work to clean a fork afterwards than it is to clean a mixer.
  • A frying pan
  • a spatula
  • a plate to put your french toast on when it’s done

Put your milk into the bowl, and add your eggs. You can also add cinnamon at this point if you would like cinnamon on your french toast. Mix them together pretty thoroughly. Then grease and heat your frying pan.

The egg and milk (or in this case almond milk) mixed up.

As your frying pan begins to get pretty warm, put a slice of bread into the milk and egg mixture. Let it soak for just a second and then flip it. Put it in the frying pan. Let it fry for a few moments and flip it. If it is lightly browned, it has fried enough on the one side. Repeat on the side you just flipped it to, and then remove it from the pan.

Nicely browned on one side, and cooking on the other.

You’ll repeat the process with the rest of the bread slices until you have as much french toast as you want for breakfast. I like to put honey and butter on mine when I’m getting ready to serve it.


Until next time,

Homestead in health y’all!
