Project Name: Super Secret Ingredient French Toast
Brief Description: My assignment began last week when kid2 asked me to show him how to make French toast. This was an odd request, because he's never shown an interest in cooking. Whatever, I'll take the bonding time. Turns out, he presented the recipe to his school, which was having a breakfast food contest, and he won! Tomorrow he gets to prepare his "Secret Ingredient French Toast" for the breakfasting high schoolers and will be on the news. Tonight he prepped for his first public culinary experience by making the recipe for his sisters (even though the grocery was out of the intended bread). Here's my secret recipe sssshhhhhh....it's a secret!
Ingredients: Makes about 10-12 slices
sliced White Mountain bread
splash of orange juice, from zested orange
splash of milk
about 1/4 cup (secret ingredient) International Delight Vanilla Coffee Creamer
zest of 1/2 an orange, or to taste
whole nutmeg or a pinch of ground nutmeg
Preheat griddle to 350.
Crack eggs a la Alton Brown (NOT on the edge of the dish, but on the counter!) into shallow dish and beat til combined. Add a splash of milk, splash of OJ, and coffee creamer, whisk til uniform in colour. It'll be pale buttery yellow. Add orange rind, and sprinkle cinnamon/sugar mix on top. Grate a bit of nutmeg with a microplane (or sprinkle ground) over mixture. Not too much! Dip slice of white mountain bread into mixture, turn over, then add to hot griddle. Repeat until bread, or mixture, is gone. I usually add more cinnamon/sugar to the mixture after every third bread slice. Also, it is best to lay your bread out the night before or use day old bread. Unless you like floppy French toast, and that's okay too. Here's kid2's toast tonight, using white Italian bread, which I don't recommend because it's just wrong.
NOOOOO!!!! My picture won't upload!!!!! I'll be back in a minute.
Got it! Kid2 kept slapping me when I attempted to "garnish" his toast. I gotta learn to let them grow up and do things themselves.
