Who am I kidding… I don’t speak French… I can’t speak any foreign language for that matter… But one day I would LOVE to hole up with Rosetta Stone for a few weeks and learn some French (then, of course, subsequently travel to France!) More challenging than learning a new language, though, is finding the time to do so…
In the meantime, I’ll just keep adapting and Americanizing what started out to be a French dish. French Toast!
This is absolutely not authentic, but it tastes good, it’s pretty healthy with the ingredients I used, and it made me happy on Saturday morning!
Here’s what you need:
3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
5 or 6 taps of cinnamon (if you wish)
1 Tablespoon vegetable oil
4 slices of whole wheat double fiber bread (or whatever bread you want to use!)
Here’s what you do:
Put a cast iron skillet on the eye and get it warming up while you prepare the next step! Have something like butter nearby to grease the skillet when it comes time to use it.
Mix the eggs, almond milk, cinnamon, and oil in a medium sized bowl.
Submerge the bread into the mixture, one piece at a time. As you take each piece out, put it into the warm greased skillet. (My skillet fits two pieces at a time.)
After about three minutes, flip each piece over. Keep flipping every few minutes until you reached the desired brownness on each side.
Transfer onto a plate, top with sliced bananas and syrup, and enjoy!
This recipe makes enough for two people!
What’s your favorite way to do French (or should I say “French”) Toast? I’d love to hear!
