FRENCH TOAST NOM NOM
Is there a more decadent breakfast, other than sitting down to a plate of freshly made French toast, doused in plenty of maple syrup and real butter? Not a chance.
Do you need a good reason to prepare a perfectly over-the-top carbohydrate-fest meal? Certainly not. After all bread is my passion!
Is there a reason why this post is full of questions?
No - just in a silly mood!
How do you make le French Toast (never have seen it in France, mind you)?
I was taught by my Dad to slice stale baguette bread into diagonal slices and sop them in a heady mixture of milk, egg, vanilla, cinnamon and a smidgen of nutmeg. Fry the slices up in generously-buttered pan and serve at once. It doesn't get much simpler or more delicious - I've never really improved upon this tried and true method.
So grab an extra loaf of bread and intentionally let it go stale - your breakfast companions will be thankful!
