Basic French Toast

Basic French Toast

1 egg

2 tbsp milk

1 tbsp sugar

½ tsp cinnamon

½ tsp vanilla

2 slices day-old or stale bread

Whisk egg, milk, sugar, cinnamon and vanilla in square 6”x8” pan.  Lay bread in egg mixture and let rest for 10-15 minutes, flipping once, to allow bread to soak up liquid.

Heat skillet over medium heat and coat with cooking spray.  

Transfer bread slices to pan and cook, flipping once, until bread reaches desired brownness, 3-4 minutes per side.  Remove to plate.

Top French toast with fruit, jam or syrup, if desired, and serve immediately.

1 serving, 300 calories (French toast only)

Hack:  This recipe can be double or tripled for multiple servings and frozen for up to 3 months.  Lay cooked french toast on a baking sheet and place in the freezer until frozen.  Wrap toast tightly and store in the freezer.  To reheat,  microwave, covered with a damp paper towel, for 15 second intervals until hot.  Alternately, warm in the oven for 8-10 minutes or pop in the toaster.

  1. Definitely going to be making this one for dinner tonight. Thank you so much for this and for making sure all the details are included. I will be evaluating how good this comes out for me by having my roommates try it and let me know what they think. Had to come down here and let you know that people are really liking your stuff!

    1. I’m happy to hear that your roommates approve of your new cooking skills and my recipes!  I can’t wait to hear what they think about this one!

  2. Hi Cynthia. What a lovely (or rather tasty) blog. I haven’t know it before but I think I will stay here longer. Love your recipes and ideas. As for French toast I’m doing them all the time as my family love their taste. Looking forward to test your ‘hack’, it would make my life much easier to prepare more toasts and save for later.
