Last night my wife was up throughout the night with our two year old who had a slight fever. He couldn’t sleep and spent a lot of time crying. It was miserable for me and I wasn’t even the one taking care of him. So this morning I decided it was a good morning to bust out some easy, yet amazing french toast and let my wife sleep in till 9:30.
These french toast don’t require you to make a mess, only a bowl, a pan and a few ingredients and little to no cooking skills required.
- Bread – I like Texas Toast but any firm, not too thin and flimsy bread will do.
- 1 Cup Half and Half
- 2 Eggs
- 1 Tablespoon Sugar
Mix the half and half, eggs and sugar together in a bowl. Whisk them until they form a pudding like texture. Preheat your pan on medium heat and spray with non-stick spray. Once your pan is warm, butter it. The non-stick spray before the butter keeps the butter from burning on the pan.
Soak your bread in the mixture for roughly 2 minutes. If you only dip it quickly it will not soak into the bread and you will have dry boring french toast. Cook on pan for roughly 3-4 minutes per side. You want to cook the french toast slowly, but not too slow. A slightly moist inside is the goal here. If it is under-cooked it will just be wet and mushy and if it is over cooked it will be dry.
When finished, a sprinkle of powdered sugar will sweeten up the french toash (my kids love the sugar on it).
Kelly was thrilled that I let her sleep in until 9:30 and even more thrilled to wake up to some coffee and french toast. +10 Points for Me!
