How To Make French Toast

Sharing is caring!

Making French Toast is easier than you think. It’s made by dipping thick-cut bread in a simple custard base and pan-frying it.

French Toast

Making French toast is basically taking milk and/or cream, a few eggs, and some flavoring.  Combine them well and soak thick slices of bread – preferably French bread – in the mixture and then cook in a skillet.  (Non-stick skillets are the way to go!)

I like to sprinkle French toast with a little powdered sugar and serve it with some fresh fruit.  Syrup is optional.

 For a dessert option, a drizzle of chocolate sauce is nice.

French toast can even be served topped with a scoop of ice cream, then drizzled with chocolate sauce, and topped with a cherry or strawberry.
