French Toast - Plain - Simple - Delicious
Serve for breakfast or anytime of the day - Brunch Favorite with butter and Maple Syrup
7 slices bread, regular sliced or Texas thick Bread
3 tablespoons regular whole milk
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2 teaspoon sugar
Extra Virgin Olive Oil or cooking oil (For frying)
Beat eggs, milk, salt, vanilla and sugar together well until foamy.
Heat a fry pan large enough for two slices, set heat between low and medium adding two teaspoon extra virgin olive oil. (Using too high of a heat will burn the olive oil flavor and also burn the toast before it is cooked.)
Place a slice of bread in mixture, count to 5, turn it over and count to 5. Fry each bread side about 4 minutes or until a light golden brown. Let finished pieces cool to just warm before serving, warm the syrup before serving.
Makes enough batter for 7 slices
Note *To change this recipe from plain American French Toast you can give it a Mediterranean taste by adding a pinch of Chinese 5 spice mixed in well with the batter.
Let finished toast cool, sieve on a generous amount of confectionery sugar.
Serve with favorite syrup, jam or jelly.
