Bonjour mis amis! Je m’apelle Hilah. That
is all the French that I know, but today, we will be making French toast because it
has been requested by several people. You know who you are, and I am going to show you
how I make French toast today, so bon appetit! Okay, here’s about French toast. It’s a really
good way to use up stale bread, and so what I am, this is actually very fresh bread that
I bought this morning, but I am going to go ahead and cut it and set it aside and let
it dry out just a little bit before we cook it while I mix up my eggs and stuff. So it’s
basically like you make like sort of a custard mix with eggs and milk and a little sugar
and you dip your sort of dried out bread in that, and the trick is to put like equal parts
milk and eggs. You want it like real light and fluffy. You don’t want it like egg on
toast, it’s not like that, it’s different. Okey-dokey smokies. I am going to do a couple
of eggs, and I will see how far it gets me. So an egg is approximately, get out of there,
an egg is about a quarter cup of liquid, so I am going to put in like a half a cup of
milk. First I am gonna whisk these up, or scramble them, whatever. I want to get it
very well mixed. I don’t want any chunks of yellow or white. I don’t want any segregation
in my eggs. Okey doke. I am gonna eyeball it because that’s how I roll. Okay, now I
am gonna put in a little bit of vanilla like maybe half a teaspoon, or whatever that was.
I am gonna use my little microplane and put in about a teaspoon of orange zest. Obviously
I have to wash this orange before I zesting it, and it might even be this whole orange.
Let’s see what we have. There, okay, now I will use this very clean
spoon to put in a couple of teaspoons of sugar which you can leave that out if you like.
Okay, here we have our eggy batter, yayyyyyy! Now, I am gonna dip my bread in it. Oooh,
I am gonna turn on my skillet and heat that up. I am using a griddle today, not my cast
iron skillet. I hope it doesn’t throw me off kilter. Okay, bread, so I am gonna cook this
in butter. That’s the way we do it. So I have my thing heating up. I am gonna put a tablespoon
of butter down and get that swirly around and cover my dealy bopper, and probably could
cook two at a time on this griddle. That looks delightful. Turn it down a little bit to our
medium heat and then got my bread. I wish it was a little more stale, but what you gonna
do, life’s not perfect. You know what I am sayin’? Okay, so just sort of dip each side in it,
shake off any excess, and put it on yo’ griddle, and it makes that sizzle sound. Okay, I bet
your done. I am gonna flip you. Whoa! It’s sliding around. Oh, my God! It totally smells
like donuts in here, badass! Donuts are a good smell when you’re making French toast
because it means you have a perfect blend of sugar and spices. This is what it looks
like when it’s totally done. Beautiful! I am gonna eat it. Tres parfait mis amis. Okay,
I am gonna eat. Wait, I am gonna turn this one off so it doesn’t burn. I am gonna take
this one off too because look how purty. That’s just beautiful.
Now, you could put powdered sugar or maple syrup or whatever, but I am gonna just taste
the purity of the French toast itself. Wow! Look at that. That is nice. Mmmmm. Mmmmmmm.
The orange zest is so nice. Mmmmm. There you go. That’s how you make French toast. I am
gonna eat some more because I haven’t had breakfast yet. Breakfast is the most important
meal of the day. Okay, check out the website. I shouldn’t have done that before I talked.
