This recipe makes 5 pieces of French Toast.
1. Put 1.5 tablespoons of powdered milk into a bowl. Add about 1 cup of water and stir until it dissolves.
2. Break the egg, beat and pour it into the milk. Stir and mix thoroughly.
If you are using liquid milk, use about 1 cup, just pour the egg into it and mix both together.
3. Add the vanilla, nutmeg into the egg-milk mixture. Mix.
4. Take a piece of sliced bread, gently dip it into the milk mixture. Make sure the whole bread is submerged in the egg-milk mixture. Soak for about 5 to 10 seconds then set aside on a tray. Do this until you have soaked all the bread slices.
5. Coat a non-stick pan with butter (or oil), heat up until hot, put as many bread pieces as you can comfortably fit in the pan. Then on medium-low heat, let it cook.
6. When the underside is brown enough, flip to the other side and let it cook and brown.
Done. If you have more to cook, put the already cooked ones in the oven to keep warm.
Eat alone or drizzle some maple syrup (or honey) on the toast. Eat alone or serve with some eggs. Mine was served with some vegetable omelette (see second picture).
***Be sure to serve immediately while it is nice and warm. French toast tends to get soggy when it gets cold.
You can substitute nutmeg with cinnamon, but I find that it tastes better with nutmeg. Just a personal preference :).
