Ingredients french toast

  • 8 slice of bread
  • Butter for greasing the skillet
  • 4 eggs
  • half cup of milk
  • 1 tablespoon of sugar
  • 1 coffee spoon of salt
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon

Way of doing french toast

Melt the butter in the frying pan while in a large bowl place all the ingredients except the bread and beat everything so that it is very homogeneous.

Place one slice at a time in the previous mixture so that the slice absorbs some of the mixture and place directly in the hot skillet.

Fry on both sides and dry on absorbent paper and warm are the best way to eat them.

For those with a sweet tooth, you can put a little more cinnamon and powdered sugar on top or even strawberry jam, pumpkin, etc…

If it's made for a snack, you can also top it with a little syrup made with port wine and sugar.
