You might have seen thousands of french toast recipes around the Internet. Savory, sweet, stove-top fried, oven-baked, french toast sandwiches or served in sticks. I wasn’t aware that there are that many variations in other cuisines until I started blogging and learning from others. However, today I want to go simple and share mom’s easy french toast recipe which we grew up with.
If you are one of those who can not think of breakfast without bread, you have something in common with Turkish people. We LOVE to spread something on bread such as butter, honey, cluttered cream, strawberry jam or even a spicy pepper paste. Breakfast is like a big ceremony with lots of foods at the weekend when all family members are together. It is a BIG reason to wake up! Although I love to go with quick and easy breakfast recipes especially during weekdays like Warm Bulgur Breakfast Bowls, Overnight Coconut Oatmeal , Banana Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies or Low-Carb Egg Muffins for a grab-and-go breakfast, weekend breakfasts are always my favorite.
How To Make Easy French Toast
Nobody can refuse newly made french toasts for breakfast. We make it in the simplest form: Beat eggs, season with salt and spices. Dip bread slices into beaten egg mixture so that they absorb the mixture well and then fry. No additional flavors. Since my mom loves to add spices on almost everything, she sprinkles some into beaten eggs when making her easy french toast recipe.
Easy French Toast Without Milk
This recipe doesn’t have any milk. The mixture contains just eggs and spices, which makes the toasts fluffier. What’s more, we use olive oil for frying the toasts, so it’s great for those who are allergic to dairy products. If you don’t like the flavor of olive oil, use another plant based oil like sunflower oil or coconut oil.
