I started making French Toast as a preteen. It was one of the first breakfast foods that I learned to make. One of the first foods I made on the “stove”. I remember thinking that I was pretty skilled because I could make something on the stove, not just peanut butter and jelly sandwiches that I served on a paper plate. I was so proud of my skill that I could not wait to make it for everyone. Oh, how many times I had spent the night at my best friends house and made french toast for her and her family. I remember getting up early before everyone and quietly making it as a surprise for them. Thinking back on it, my friends family was very kind to me. I am sure it was not the best tasting french toast.
I have learned a few things over the years about french toast. For example, if you use bread that is still slightly frozen it makes it easier to dip in the egg mixture. It does not absorb as much of the egg mixture, just the right amount. For a crispy outside make sure the pan or griddle you are using is just hot enough to hear the bread sizzle but not too hot that you burn the butter. The thing I have learned the most about making french toast is- always make more than you think you need. You can never eat just one piece! Oh, and if you make too much, french toast freezes great!
