A few weeks ago, Daddy and Mommy went on a date. Kitty was making French toast for supper (my favorite!), so I asked if I could help. We had lots of fun together. She rolled the bread in the goopy stuff and then put it in the pan. Then we let it cook for a little while. We had two pans going so that we could get it made faster, so she flipped the bread on the square pan and I flipped the bread on the circle one. I learned that you have to be very careful and keep your hand away from the hot sides of the pan, because I accidently burned myself! Ouch! I still got to help finish making supper, though. I like to cook!
When it was all done, all of us kids ate it with maple syrup. Yummy! Here is the recipe:
3 beaten eggs
¾ cup milk
1 Tbsp. sugar
1/8 tsp. cinnamon (optional)
¼ tsp. salt
10 slices of dry white bread
In a shallow bowl, beat eggs, milk, sugar, cinnamon, and salt. Dip bread in egg mixture, coating both sides. In a greased skillet, cook bread on both sides over medium heat until golden brown. Serve with syrup.
Notes from the cook:
The French toast is best (and better for you) when made with Mommy’s homemade whole wheat bread. It fills hungry boys like me up faster that way.:)
It is also yummy when eaten with powdered sugar instead of syrup.
Kitty doubled the recipe for our family, but used a few more pieces of bread than the double batch called for, just to use up the goopy stuff.
