Mom’s French Toast

Sunday mornings are usually great for having a family breakfast. If you want to try something a little different, then my mom’s french toast may be just what you’re looking for.

Growing up, I didn’t call it french toast. If I do an exact translation of what we called it, it would be “bread with egg.” There was a sweet and spicy version and today I will be sharing the ‘Mitha Pow’ or ‘Sweet Bread.’

It’s actually a pretty simple recipe that only needs four ingredients and doesn’t even require syrup. It’s sure to be a hit with everyone.

Here’s what you’ll need:

French Toast ingredients

3 slices of whole grain bread (or any bread you like) cut in half
1 large egg
2 Tbsp white sugar
1/2 -3/4 cup of milk

In a bowl, that’s large enough to dip a slice of bread, add the egg, milk and sugar. Whisk all three really well.

Lightly coat a pan with oil and heat it on medium/low. Dip each slice of bread in the mixture (make sure the sugar isn’t stuck to the bottom of the bowl) and soak completely.

It’s best to cook two slices of bread at a time. When one side is golden brown, flip the bread to cook the other side. Do that until each slice is done.

 Then plate and serve, no syrup needed. We had it with chicken bacon and fresh fruit. This is usually enough for the kids and myself for breakfast so you can double the recipe if you have more people for breakfast.

  1. I haven’t made French toast in so long. Maybe it’s time I do it this week! A nice change up for the kids. It’s funny because we all disagree on what to have for breakfast. My kids like chocolate crepes or eggs and bacon. My husband like eggs, sausage, and rice. And I like oatmeal with a blueberries. It can be an interesting (long) morning.
    Thanks for sharing!! 🙂
