Nothing beats a home cooked hot breakfast on a cold morning. A filling breakfast of egg, ham or bacon can help make a day seem shorter. For some people, there is not competition for a stack of pancakes. Sweet and buttery taste of maple syrup are pleasing to many pancake lovers.
However some people need their eggs and their sweet syrup too. For those folks it is French toast in the morning or nothing at all. Bread submerged in a battered egg is the first step in making French Toast. Melt butter onto a pan or skillet then lay the bread onto it.
The Development of French Toast
The development of French toast is continuously debated. France is not the root of French toast. One of the earliest forms of the dish can be traced back to fifteenth century. It was known as pain perdu in England and torrijas in Spain although the recipes varied a bit from today’s standard.
Preparing French Toast
The perfect French toast is a matter of taste. Bread that dries overnight allows for a cook to create the perfect French toast. In order to reduce to much egg soaking the bread, dry it overnight. French toast experts may prefer extreme egg-soaked bread.
The basic preparation of a classic French toast is to take a slice of white bread. If you really want a treat, choose a thick slice of challah, a twisted egg bread. Dip the slice of bread in a beaten egg. For thick bread or several slices, you will need several beaten eggs. Make sure enough egg is absorbed. You may need to poke a few holes it in with a fork.
While the bread is soaking, heat a fry pan or skillet and throw in a pat or two of butter. Place the bread in the pan after the butter melts. When the bread has cooked to a golden brown, flip the slice with a spatula and cook the other site. Cook the raw egg out of the bread by completely cooking both sides. Pushing on the bread with a spatula can help determine how done the French toast is.
Use butter and maple syrup to enhance the taste of the French toast when it is ready. Fruit, bacon and sausage can be included with this dish. Although traditionally considered a breakfast food, French toast can be enjoyed at any meal or for a late even snack to replace cake or other baked goods.
