Good morning! I’d like to share a french toast recipe that my mother-in-law game to me.
Unfortunately it’s one of those recipes where the exact amounts are not written anywhere so I’ll do my best to explain.
The secret ingredient is pepper which seems sort of weird (in my opinion) for a breakfast item but it tastes great!
Ingredients (enough for 2-3 people)
- 1/3 cup milk
- 6 slices of bread
- 4 eggs
Crack the eggs in a large bowl. Whip until scrambled. Mix in the milk. Then, sprinkle the desired amount of pepper in to egg/milk mixture. I usually use enough pepper to cover the entire top of the egg/milk mixture and then I stir it in. Mine looks like this when finished:
Then, using your fingers or tongs, dip both sides each slice of bread in the mixture and cook on a pre-heated skillet set to medium heat (I cook at 325F on an electric skillet). When the bottoms start to brown, flip each piece of bread and cook on the other side.
When finished, transfer to a plate and top with syrup, powdered sugar, or whatever you’d like!
Have a great weekend.
