Snow Day French Toast!
What do you eat on a snow day? Well, if you stocked up on bread, eggs, and milk then you can make one of our snow day favorites, French Toast!
Check out this awesome recipe below and make sure to make all the French Toast you can today!
This recipe also calls for flour – the secret ingredient that makes this french toast better than all the rest!
Makes 8 Servings!
- Add of the ingredients, except the bread, to a blender or shallow dish and whisk well to combine.
- Dip the bread slices into the egg mixture, dredging them on both sides
- Place bread on the griddle
- Cook for a few minutes on each side
- Serve warm with syrup!
WHAT IS THE BEST BREAD FOR FRENCH TOAST?
I love to use thick bread, like Texas toast or this Sara Lee Artesano bread when I make french toast. It’s also nice if the bread is a few days old, or slightly stale, (although that’s not a requirement).
FOR PERFECT FRENCH TOAST, ADD FLOUR TO THE BATTER.
Most people do a double take when they see flour in this recipe. The flour helps to make the liquid more of a “batter” which will yield extra fluffy and delicious french toast. Flour is the secret ingredients!
You can whisk the batter by hand–you won’t be able to get it completely smooth, but the small lumps of flour really won’t matter when you cook it. You could also add all of the ingredients to a blender if you want, but don’t over-mix it.
WHAT TYPE OF MILK TO USE FOR FRENCH TOAST:
When choosing what type of milk to use in your french toast, remember that milk with a higher fat content will make the batter creamier. Whole milk works great and you could even add a little splash of cream if you want. In the end, use whatever milk you have on hand (it’s not worth a trip to the grocery store!)
EQUIPMENT FOR FRENCH TOAST:
I’ve found that an 11×7” baking pan or a deep dish pie pan work great to whisk the batter in and to soak two pieces of bread at once. Any shallow dish with sides will work.
I also use a griddle for cooking french toast. Heck, I use that thing for everything from pancakes and bacon to cooking tortillas.
WHAT TO SERVE ON FRENCH TOAST:
I love my French toast topped with fresh fruit, powdered sugar and good ol’ fashioned Mrs. Butterworth’s syrup! You could add a dollop of whipped cream, a sprinkle of coconut, or a drizzle of nutella.
