No-Plan French Toast
Any bread will do, even the cheap stuff from the market. I happen to have some raisin challah in the freezer. That's as fancy as this gets.
I'm giving the single-serving, one-egg recipe. (Or 2 small children.) That makes it easiest to scale up.
1/4 C milk
2 slices bread
1 Tb margarine (so you don't have to salt the egg)
1. Beat the egg in a shallow pan. I use a pie tin. Add the milk and beat to combine. If you want to get creative, you can add spices directly to the egg like cinnamon or nutmeg.
3. Place the bread slices in the skillet and allow them to cook undisturbed for about 5 minutes. You're cooking this over a lower heat so the outside doesn't burn before the egg on the inside is done. It's also how I make grilled cheese, so the bread is browned around the time the cheese melts. I used to throw out any egg that didn't absorb, but they're expensive nowadays, so I just pour it on top of the bread in the skillet.
4. Turn the bread and cook until browned, about 3 minutes. Serve hot with powdered sugar and/or syrup.
