Enough talk, let's toast!

Step 1: Ingredients - Raid the Fridge

There are countless variations on this timeless recipe, so go ahead and get messy. Make up your own and share, there's so many different ways to make this simple dish. Just about every recipe will have something similar as what i have for a base, feel free to use it as a guide and modify to make your breakfast super tasty.

    utensils + implements:
  • medium mixing bowl
  • fork
  • spatula
  • large frying pan
  • measuring cup

  • 6 slices of bread (any kind)
  • 2 eggs (brown, white, free range, ostrich, etc.)
  • 2 cups milk (3%, rich milk/cream means thicker batter)
  • dollop of butter
  • spices (cinnamon, nutmeg)

*yields 6 slices

That's it, simple!

Step 2: Preheat

Find a medium frying pan and set it on your range, set the element low-medium heat. If you are using a gas range maybe go a bit lower.

The trickiest part of french toast is the right temperature to use. Always err on the side of caution, in this case a lower temperature is what you need, you can always let it cook a little longer if you need to.

Keep in mind that the only ingredient which will actually needs cooking is the egg. Eggs don't need to be cooked to death, especially in such a thin layer. So keep that heat down!

Step 3: Mix and Dip

Blend eggs, milk and spices in bowl with whisk or fork.

Add a dab of butter into your heated pan, while it's sizzling away dip your bread in the mixture.
Ensure even coating over bread, soaking for about 30 seconds. You may soak for longer, depending on how you like it.

By now your pan should be hot enough, move dipped bread into pan.
Repeat until pan is full or desired number of slices have been consumed.

Step 4: Here's Where It Get's Different

Being a connoisseur of French Toast, I've had the pleasure of dining on this delicious dunked delicacy all over the world. There are variations of the egg mixture which allow for a skirt of the mix all long the outside of the toast, which is quite tasty!

This variation is slightly thicker and the mixture stays in a thin coat on the bread without much excess, to achieve different results you need to change the viscosity of your mixture, so maybe try adding a little more milk, then try leaving your toast in the mix a little longer, or just pour on additional mixture from your bowl directly on the cooking toast.
You can't go wrong with this recipe, so try it all and see what you like best!

Cook your sliced-goodness for about a minute, then flip it over.
Since I haven't let it soak too long in the mixture (you did take it out of the mixture, right?) then you don't need to worry about cooking it too long.

Step 5: Get a Little Cretaceous

So, now you're done...or are you?
All that's left is to find your favourite cookie cutter and start stamping out some friends to eat breakfast with!

Here we have some dinosaurs who wanted to come back 100 million years to enjoy some breakkie with me.
It's a little known fact that almost all dinosaurs favoured french toast above all other forms of flora and fauna, so it's important to note that if you leave the excess on the same plate as the dinosaurs that they are apt to eat them, so maybe you should gobble them first.

Step 6: Show Them Who's Boss!

grab your new friends and show them who's boss!
