French toast: An easy-peasy breakfast

Did you know? In France, French toast is known as pain perdu. This means “lost bread”, because mostly, day-old or stale bread is used to make the toast.

The French toast recipe is one of the simplest recipes ever. All you just need are:



Slices of bread





Honey or jam



Break the eggs into a flat shallow plate, add a pinch of salt and sugar and whisk. Take your sliced bread and place it into the egg mixture, one after the other, depending on the number of sliced bread you want. Let each bread soak for a few seconds. Flip it so the other side of the bread can also soak the egg mixture.

Heat a non-stick pan on medium heat. Put little vegetable oil in the pan once it is warm. Lay the bread gently in the pan. Let it fry for few minutes, then check under the slice of bread to see if it has turned golden brown. Flip to the other side of the bread so it can also fry.

Serve hot with honey or jam.
