Instructions

Preparing The Egg Mixture:

  • To prepare the egg mixture, take a medium bowl and crack the two giant eggs in it. (Make sure there is no piece of eggshell in the bowl. It will ruin the taste.) Use a fork to break the yolk and beat it with a spoon or mix it with the egg whites.

  • Add the almond milk or the regular milk to the bowl and mix it well with the eggs. (Milk is an essential ingredient when it comes to making french toast. Don’t forget!)
  • Now, add vanilla, powdered nutmeg, powdered cinnamon, granulated sugar, and salt into the bowl to make that perfect egg mixture for our french toast. (Feel free to change the measurements according to your taste.)
  • Finally, whisk and mix everything for a few minutes.

 Our egg mixture is ready. You can now put it aside. (It is an essential part of our French toast recipe. Prepare it well.)

Preparing The French Toast:

  • To make French toast, take a non-stick skillet or your regular pan. You have to put the skillet/pan on the stove at medium-high heat. (You can use a large skillet to cook two of the French toast simultaneously.)
  • Add some butter and vegetable oil to it and wait until the butter starts turning golden brown. (Why both? Because oil will prevent the bread from sticking and will help it cook well. Butter will give the toast a rich and crunchy taste.)
  • Now, Get the mixture you prepared. 
  • Before using the egg mixture, make sure to whisk it one more time. The mixture will become smooth. 
  • Take the thick slice of bread and dip it into the mixture. Make sure that both sides of the bread are fully covered with variety. (Bread for French Toast has to be thick. If you use thin slices of bread, the toast will become too crunchy with no softness. A narrow slice of bread absorbs less of the egg mixture.)
  • Put the bread in the skillet and let it cook for 2-3 minutes or until golden brown on medium heat. Flip over to the other side when one side is fully cooked. Transfer it to a plate. (Baking sheet can be used to soak the extra oil and butter from the cooked french toast.)
  • Before cooking the other bread slices, make sure to add butter and oil to the pan.
