French Toast

Materials

  • eggs (3)
  • milk (1 cup)
  • kosher salt (1 tsp)
  • butter (1 tbsp)
  • sugar (1/4 cup)
  • cinnamon (1 tbsp)
  • French bread (5 slices)

Procedure

  1. Crack eggs into a bowl and beat until consistent. Add a pinch of kosher salt and mix.
  2. Pour milk into a separate bowl. Add a pinch of kosher salt and mix.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix sugar with cinnamon.
  4. Melt butter in a non-stick pan over medium heat. Swirl the pan so it is well-coated.
  5. Once the butter is hissing, plunge a slice of bread into the milk, then shake the excess off. Plunge the slice into the bowl of egg, and shake off excess. Lay the slice in the butter. Repeat for the remaining bread slices.
  6. Flip each slice of bread once it has been browned and caramelized. Use the bread slices to soak up the remaining butter so it doesn't burn.
  7. Remove the bread slices. In a large mixing bowl, coat the toasted bread slices in the cinnamon sugar mixture. Toss until liberally coated.
  8. Serve immediately. Wipe out the pan of any remaining butter before beginning another batch.
