French Toast

The earliest known reference to French toast is in the Apices, a collection of Latin recipes dating to the 4th or 5th century, where it is described as simply aliter Dulcia (“another sweet dish”). The recipe says to “slice fine white bread, remove the crust, and break it into large pieces. Soak these pieces in milk and beaten egg, fry in oil, and cover with honey before serving. The usual French name is Pain Perdu.

Despite its name, French toast did not come from France. The sweet breakfast dish — which Americans love to dunk in syrup and sprinkle with powdered sugar — is known by different names and recipes around the world and was invented long before France even existed.

 Ingredients

1.     2 large eggs

2.     1 cup milk, half and half, coconut milk, or almond milk

3.     Pinch salt

4.     1 tablespoon granulated sugar, honey or maple syrup

5.     1 teaspoon vanilla extract

6.     1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

7.     8 slices sandwich bread

8.     Butter

Directions

 

Whisk together eggs, milk, salt, sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon in a flat-bottomed pie plate or baking dish.

 Place bread slices, one or two at a time, into the egg mixture and flip to make sure both sides of the bread are well-coated.

Melt butter in a large skillet or on a griddle.

Place bread slices in skillet or on a griddle and cook on medium heat until golden brown on each side, about 2-3 minutes.

 

Serve immediately or keep warm in the oven until ready to serve, but no longer than about 30 minutes.

 

Notes

 

You are simply dipping your bread slices into the egg mixture. If you leave your bread in the mixture for an extended amount of time, it will absorb more liquid and take longer to cook through.
