My wife has gotten into the fine and homey habit of making French toast for my daughter every morning (my boy, despite his brown food adoration, passes it up most of the time). And she makes it an easy proposition by whisking up a batch of the egg mixture every few days and storing it in the refrigerator. Along with a smoothie, it’s an amazing foundation for the day. And I know that the kids (and myself) appreciate that comforting smell of melting butter and sweet spices in the morning.
Fast French Toast
Excuse the lack of measurements. It’s that kind of recipe.
a bit of milk
a pinch of salt
vanilla extract (some fancy kind)
[ed’s not: i’d throw in a couple hits of freshly grated nutmeg]
Mix it. Dip the bread (preferably something leaning toward a whole wheat). Cook it up in butter. Serve with Grade B maple syrup. The grade B is darker and has more flavor than the grade A. Plus, it tends to be a bit cheaper.
