Dad's French Toast

My dad was and still is, a sports nut and as I was growing up, while it snowed outside, we spent many days and many nights watching football matches, ski jumping and Cowboy and Indian films.  They were my favourite.  I loved spending time with dad.  We did exactly what I wanted to do and that suited me just fine ;)

Dad also always cooked my favourite food - French Toast being one of them.  I do enjoy going out for breakfast a lot, but I also love making FT and reminiscing about my childhood.

4 eggs make about 8 slices.  I like to make the mixture on a flat plate - a bowl is too difficult to dip bread into.

Throw in a pinch of salt, a couple of tea spoons of flour and about 1/4 of milk and beat with a fork until mixed.

Dip both sides of the bread into the mixture.  I do it quickly, as I don't like my FT too soggy.

Throw into a hot frying pan with some melted butter

And enjoy!  My favourite FT is drizzled with honey with a dollop of sour cream.

Served with herbal tea and a chocolate (I rest the chocolate on the hot tea cup, so it's nice and soft and beginning to melt)

  5. You're my kinda gal. I don't like my french toast too soggy either (from the good ol' bread days) and whipped cream is excellent on top!

    What a wonderful idea to put the chocolate next to the tea. I'm going to try that right away before bed!

    Mat and I were looking at this post last night and he got so excited because he hasn't had french toast in ages (he didn't call it french toast though, he named it something which i can't remember but it meant missing bread or something?!) definitely will be making this on the weekend x

  9. I'm so happy to see that you're going to try it! Please let me know how you go!!
