Oh just a delicious stack of Your Basic Weekend French Toast recipe! Simple, straightforward and no fuss or frills. Sometimes you just can’t beat a classic.
Thank goodness the weekend is here! Last Saturday WE GOT A PUPPY! It’s actually been months in the works, but he was ready to come home last weekend. He’s a 8 week old Brittany spaniel and his name is Finnegan, but we call him Finn or Finny. And boy has it been an adjustment, it basically feels like I have a newborn baby again.
Working around his sleep schedule has been the biggest hurdle. I miss my freedom, but Finnegan is ridiculously adorable and for being so young, he’s such a good puppy. Plus he likes to snuggle in my lap while I work at night. He’s such a love nugget.
This French toast was the first recipe I made while Finn was napping because it’s so easy.
Remember back when I posted Your Basic Weekend Pancakes? Well, now I’m sharing a pillowy French toast version to match. Your Basic Weekend French Toast is an easy, go-to recipe with simple basic ingredients. Nothing fancy or hard to find.
Because everyone’s weekend morning needs an easy, go-to French toast recipe.
To Make Your Basic Weekend French Toast You Will Need:
- kosher salt
- texas toast
Into a mixing bowl, crack in 3 large eggs. Whisk well until the egg whites are broken up and mixed well with the yolks.
Next, pour in 1-1/2 cups milk and 1-1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract.
Lastly, season with a pinch of kosher salt and grate in some fresh nutmeg.
Whisk well one last time to combine!
Using one slice of Texas toast at a time, quickly dip each side into the egg custard. I like to dip all of the pieces of bread, placing them onto a rimmed metal rack set into a baking sheet pan before griddling.
Preheat your griddle somewhere between 250 and 300°. Spray or spread the coconut with coconut oil or butter. Working in batches, place the dipped bread slices onto your preheated griddle and cook about 3 to 4 minutes a side, flipping when the underneath side is golden brown. Repeat with the remaining slices.
Butter each slice of French toast and stack before drizzling with real maple syrup.
I like to use texas toast in this recipe, however any thickly sliced bread will work perfectly.
Fluffy and delicious! You’re going to love this homey french toast recipe.
