French Toast

I noticed that there was a loaf of leftover Challah on the kitchen table and I didn’t feel like just eating it plain with some jelly. So instead I figured I could make french toast.

Here are the ingredients needed for this recipe:

  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 Tbsp. white sugar
  • 10-12 thick slices bread

Step 1: In a large bowl, add the flour.

Step 2: Slowly whisk in the milk, until no lumps.

Step 3: Whisk in the salt, eggs, cinnamon, vanilla extract and sugar until smooth.

Step 4: Soak bread slices in mixture until saturated, 3-5 minutes.

Step 5: Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium heat.

Step 6: Cook bread on each side until golden brown. Serve hot. (I topped mine with the Crème anglaise)

Egg-in-the-hole

So I was looking around my shelf of books when I came upon an old children’s cookbook. Skimming through the thick heavy pages I saw a section called “Four Ways to Cook an Eggceptional Breakfast” and I knew I had to make something from there. Now I know I’ve made all the ways to cook an egg in the book, but I saw that a friend of mine did an Egg In A Basket and that got me thinking of making my own as well. So I’ll be showing you how I will be making this breakfast item. It could also be called: bird’s nest, bull’s eye eggs, cowboy eggs, egg-in-the-hole, egg(s) in a frame, eggs in a blanket, Egyptian eye, elephant egg bagel (when made using a bagel rather than bread), frog in a hole, toad in a hole, gas house eggs, moon eggs, Sunshine Toast, Egg in the Bread-Hole, Alabama eggs, Rocky Mountain toast, and Magic Egg.

Here are the ingredients needed for this recipe:

  • 1 slice of bread
  • 1 Tbsp of butter or vegetable oil
  • 1 egg

Step 1: Cut out a hole in the center of the bread with either an upside-down drinking glass or a cookie cutter

Step 2: In a small frying pan, melt 1/2 Tbsp of butter over low heat

Step 3: Toss in the bread slice

Step 4: Add egg into the hole (or you can crack the egg into a small bowl and then add it to the bread hole, don’t worry about breaking the yolk)

Step 5: Cook until the bread is golden brown on the bottom (you can peek with a spatula)

Step 6: Using a spatula, pick up the bread and toss in remaining butter into the pan

Step 7: Turn the bread, with egg, over back into the pan

Step 8: Continue frying until the egg looks done, no more than a couple of minutes (depending how runny you like the yolk, I prefer no runny yolk so I allowed it to fry a bit longer)
