French toast: not really French and not really toast. But it still rules. You can cover it in berries and literally any sweet food on the planet except for maybe Good & Plentys, but who knows, try it. Here’s a super basic, super easy French toast recipe that you should think of as your blank canvas for experimentation. Before you attempt a pumpkin-stuffed French toast or a decadent foie gras French toast, you need to learn how to crawl—mouth first into this iconic breakfast recipe.

Basic French Toast

How to Make It

Step 1

In a smallish bowl, beat the eggs with milk.

Step 2

In a frying pan on medium heat, melt a little butter but be careful not to burn it—that’ll make Paula Deen mad, y’all!

Step 3

Dip each slice of bread into the bowl and swoosh it around to ensure it soaks up the egg mixture. Raise the slice with a fork, let excess mixture drip into the bowl and fry that bad boy in the hot pan. Do this with every slice, unless you enjoy soggy-raw-egg bread. And in that case, you’re weird.

Step 4

Flip each slice when the bread is slightly brown.

Step 5

Build a stack of French toast goodness with the cooked slices. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and “accidentally” spill a whole bottle of maple syrup over this masterpiece.
