Simple French Toast




French toast is a terrific dish to serve with sausage or bacon for a weekend brunch when you have more time to spend cooking.  However you can also freeze it and reheat it during the week as well.

Making French toast is very simple and really doesn't require a recipe.  You just need to adjust the amounts for the amount you want to make.  I allow one egg per serving.

First, beat eggs with a little heavy cream, cinnamon and nutmeg.  You can also add a few drops of vanilla, but this is optional.

Slice your bread on the thick side because you don't want it to fall apart after soaking.  Then dip it into the egg mixture and allow both sides to absorb some of the liquid, but don't leave it in too long because you don't want it to get soggy and disintegrate.

Meanwhile melt some butter in a large skillet over medium heat.  Place the soaked bread into the melted butter and let it cook a couple of minutes until it is golden brown.  Flip the bread over and repeat.

Remove and serve, or allow to cook, then pack in a Ziplock bag and freeze.  To use just heat in the microwave or even in your toaster.

Variation :  For a great breakfast sandwich, once you've cooked one side of your french toast turn it, then place 2 slices of bacon on top of one slice, and then cover with a second partially cooked slice.  Continue flipping until both sides are cooked.  The bacon will then be incorporated into the batter. (see the cooking photo above.)

You can freeze it, then reheat in the microwave when needed.  If you decide to try this make your slices reasonably thin otherwise you will end up with a very thick sandwich.
