LETíS GET SOME FUCKIN FRENCH TOAST

French toast is the goods as a breakfast/lunch/snack/dinner/sex accessory, and let’s be honest – if you fry something in butter then drown it in maple syrup, then a) you’re probably American, and b) it’s gonna taste meeeean.

Here’s a way to do French toast that is cheap, doesn’t take long and will please even the pickiest of eaters. Also it makes you look like a fancy as fuck cook without actually having to do a hell of a lot. 

Step 1: Get a baguette (French stick). They’re like $1.80 and are mean for a bunch of things, but best used for French toast imo. Cut thick slices - maybe 3-5 centimetres thick.

Step 2: Crack two eggs into a bowl, and, using a fork, mix the eggs with about a teaspoon of cinnamon. Caveat: If you don’t got any cinnamon, don’t substitute nutmeg. But also, apparently you can get high from eating a shit-tonne of nutmeg. 

Step 3: Preheat a frying pan to a low-medium heat and melt a bunch of butter in the pan. I don’t care how much you use, as long as the base of the frying pan is covered, then you’re sweet – and the more you use, the tastier your French toast will be.

Step 4: Place your bread slices in the egg mixture on both sides so they get a nice little soak on before placing them on the buttery frying pan. Lightly fry them for a few minutes on either side so that they get a slight browning but no more that that otherwise the egg gets overcooked and tastes kinda rubbery.

Step 5: Mix cinnamon and sugar together in a bowl, and as you remove the toast from the pan, place it in this bowl so that each side gets a good coating. 

Serve absolutely drowning in maple syrup or with fruit if you wanna salvage some level of healthiness in this dish.
