The Classic French Toast

As classy as a French toast!

This had to be on the top of my priority list for easy and yummy recipes! I typically avoid adding any vegetables, however, if you want you can add finely chopped onions, tomatoes, and green chillies to impart a more savoury taste.

Ingredients

  • Milk
  • Eggs
  • Powdered sugar/normal sugar
  • Cinnamon powder
  • Butter (for frying)
  • Whole wheat bread

Recipe

  • Beat the eggs in a bowl.
  • Add some milk, sugar, and cinnamon powder. Mix thoroughly.
  • Dip the bread slices in the batter and fry in butter.
  • When one side of the bread is partially done, flip the toast and fry from the other side as well.
  • Fry till the slice turns brown, then serve hot with some strawberries!

There is nothing a grilled cheese sandwich cannot fix!

I used to refer to this sandwich as ‘The Heartattack’ for the sheer amount of cheese that my mother used to put in! However, the divine taste of this classic sandwich stayed with me and I still find myself sneaking into the kitchen to make one in the middle of the night.
