Hello, in this instructable, I will show you how to make French Toast. This French Toast recipe is super easy to make, if I can make it then you can make it. If you have any questions or comments, put them down below and I will make sure to get back to you. Follow the easy steps, or watch the short video tutorial, or do both!


French Toast Recipe:

1 egg

2 pieces of thick sliced bread (whatever bread you like)

2 Tbsp of Milk

1/4 tsp of vanilla extract


Tools Needed:





Shallow bowl/pie pan

Step 1: Combine Ingredients

First let's combine our egg, milk, and vanilla extract in a small bowl. Then using a fork or whisk we will mix them together really well.

Step 2: Dip the Bread

Now we take the batter and place it in a shallow bowl or pan. I like to use a pie tin. Shallow tupperware container works great as well. Then you dip your bread slices, making sure to cover both sides, and draining the excess back into the pan/bowl.

Step 3: Cook Them

Now we turn our stovetop on to medium to medium high heat. Then take a bit of butter once the skillet is hot, and coat the pan with it. Next, lay your batter soaked bread on the pan.

Step 4: Continue Cooking

Let them cook for about 1.5 minutes on each side, until they look nice and golden brown. Then take your same butter and while the top is still hot, put butter on the top of the french toast.

Step 5: Toppings

Now you just add whatever toppings you like!

Note: One egg makes about 2 french toast, so double, triple, quadruple the recipe as needed.

Step 6: Video Tutorial

Now enjoy your French Toast!

    I add sugar. I do not like it soggy so I add bisquick and outside gets a little crust but middle is soft

    I use one egg per piece of bread, and only a couple teaspoons half and half and a half teaspoon vanilla per egg. Very eggy, but so decadent!

    I must try them with vanilla :) If you take dark brown sugar and cinnamon instead of vanilla you will have the dutch 'wentelteefjes' My grandmother always made them when she had some old bread left.

    Doesn't everyone do it like this already? Only other way I know how to do it is without vanilla.
