This will be my post for the 2nd day of Blogging Marathon. It’s been quite a while that I posted back to back and since I’ll have to do this for the next 5 days, I better get used to it. Follow up on my camera, I think I might have lost the egg fried rice pics from yesterday’s post, but I’ve quite a few photos to make up for that in this post.
Coming to the recipe, Our weekday breakfasts usually consist of toast or cereal. Which is why I try to make something interesting on the weekends, just so it feels like a weekend and not another rushed weekday. My son loves pancakes & waffles and these items feature on most of my weekend breakfast menus. Also I freeze the leftovers in individual portions for quick weekday breakfasts.
This past weekend, I decided to try something new and made French toast from America’s test kitchen. I made some changes to the recipe: I used 2% milk instead of whole milk since we don’t buy whole milk in our home. I also reduced the quantities of the ingredients as I was making only 3 serving instead of 4 as in the original recipe.
The recipe is copyrighted by Cook’s Illustrated/ America’s Test Kitchen(AND I don’t want to get into trouble them for tweaking/ changing the recipe), so I’m not going to give the recipe, but will give you a partial pictorial. (So yesterday’s post has no pictures, this post has no recipe–you guys must be thinking this lady is a sham. Please bear with me and come back tomorrow for a post with both, I promise there will be both even though it will be about something extremely basic and simple).
All my previous attempts left me with eggy & flavorless French toasts. This recipe makes EXCELLENT French toasts with just the right amount of sweetness and the texture is beyond belief. I’m going to be using this recipe for a very very long time.
