  • When completely mixed and foamy, add each slice of bread to the mixture, turning to coat both sides.  When fully coated on both sides, place in heated pan or skillet.  Let cook and work on the scrambled eggs.

  • Check your french toast by gently lifting with spatula to see if the cooked side has a nice golden to brown colour.  If it does, it’s time to flip it.  If it does not, your heat may not be high enough so just turn it up a little.
  • Add your egg mixture into a frying pan or skillet and let cook for a minute or so.  When the eggs start forming into a nice golden pile of eggs, flip them over and using your spatula, chop it up to prevent it from becoming an omelette.  When eggs are fluffy and cooked lift them up and plate them.  Add your cooked French toast.
