French Toast

 Years ago  we had a craving for French toast and had it a lot !

There are diferent methods , however we loved it with cinnamon


  • 3 slices bread
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ cup milk
  • Small amount cinnammon to taste


  • In a large bowl, whisk egg and milk until well combined. Preheat a non-stick frypan to medium-high heat.
  • Dip each slice of bread in the egg wash until coated on both sides , sprinle with cinnamon,
  • and put straight into frypan.
  • Cook for 2-3 minutes each side until golden and separates easily from frypan.
  • If the bread is sticking to the pan, cook a bit longer.

If you don't add cinnamon you can eat it plain or try it with something else you like.

      This is great. I always find myself unhappy when I'm tired and hungry them wait for couple minutes for my food or when I'm busy.
