This is one of the easiest dishes to whip up, and even if there’s nothing else in the pantry it’s usually easy to find some bread and eggs.
- 3 eggs, beaten
- dash salt
- 1 loaf bread, or 1 dozen pan de sal, cut in halves
Herb and spice options
Curry French Toast:
1 tsp curry powder, dash black pepper, dash chili powder
Herbed French Toast:
1 tsp herbes de Provence mix, dash black pepper
1/2 tsp cumin powder, 1 tsp chili powder, dash allspice
1 tsp Thai or Vietnamese fish sauce (omit the salt), 1 tsp Thai red curry paste, 2 tsp brown sugar, and optionally, 1 tbsp roasted peanut, ground or chopped fine
Choose your poison and dump the listed ingredients into the beaten egg. Dunk each piece of bread into the egg mix so both sides are lightly coated, then fry in a non-stick pan until golden-brown.
