French Toast - a complete breakfast



Breakfast is a very important meal at my place. I guess that is the way it should be. The first meal of the day after the long gap must be wholesome. You must ensure that it is the right combination of carbohydrates, proteins and meets your nutritional requirements adequately. Several studies go to show that children and adults who do not have a healthy and complete breakfast remain grumpy throughout the day (rightly so as they do not have the energy to do all that they want to). Without a good breakfast you are unable to perform your best both physically and mentally.

This is a complete breakfast that would ensure that you are smiling all day long. For more on the french toast, check out wikipedia. You could add a bowl of cut fruit or juice of your choice for that little extra. This is a very quick and easy breakfast option you would enjoy.

I am forwarding this recipe to Mansi of Fun and Food as an entry for "WBB#20 Balanced Breakfast Meal".


Ingredients for the French Toast
Bread – 2 slices
Milk – 1 cup
Sugar – 2 tsp
Butter – 1 cube
Egg-1
Vanilla essence – 2 drops (optional)

Method for making French Toast:
1-Beat the milk, egg and sugar well in a bowl.
2-Soak the slices of bread in this mixture for 5 minutes.
3-Take a pan, grease with butter and add the soaked slices. Add a little more of butter while it is being cooked.
4-Sprinkle a little sugar on both sides of the slices before turning it over (I like the glazed look that the sugar gives). Golden brown and its ready to serve.Enjoy!!

Hi!just wandered into your blog from some one else's!
Just a thought (though I am no cook!!)... I love french toast but now I find it too oily... so is there possibility of the toast being baked in the oven instead of being fried?
