French Toast

With all this snow on the ground, I walked the mile to the co-op where I do my grocery shopping. Some of the items I was looking for were out of stock due to deliveries being held up by the local weather. I was hoping for some egg bagels, but when seeing that all of the bagel bins were empty, I picked up a loaf of local artisan bread and decided on making French toast for a late lunch.

What You Need:
  • Bread of choice (I used a loaf of artisan bread, and cut 4 thick slices)
  • Eggs (2 eggs were enough for the amount of bread I used)
  • Milk (1/2 cup of almond milk)
  • Spices, if you choose (yes please! cinnamon and nutmeg for me)
What You Do:
  • Crack the eggs into a pie dish and beat with a fork. Add the milk and spices.
  • Slice bread and dip slices into the egg mixture, letting each side soak for a few seconds until it becomes saturated.
  • In a non-stick pan, lay slices out and cook until a golden brown crisp on each side.
I wasn't sure that I was going to want all 4 pieces of toast, but it was so good and that walk made me so hungry (uphill both ways, if you can believe it...this place isn't called the Wissahickon Valley for nothin'). To make French toast with an entire loaf of bread, use 4 eggs and 1 cup of milk. I like mine buttered with a little powdered sugar. Mmm. Over the past two days, I have trudged 5 miles in the snow and loved every minute of it. If only we could stay snowed in for just a little bit longer...
