French Toast

French Toast

Prep time: about 15 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 c. milk
  • dash of vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp. margarine
  • 2 pieces of bread

Directions:

  1. Crack the egg into a medium-sized bowl and beat well. Then mix in the milk and vanilla extract.
  2. Put the margarine in a frying pan. Heat the pan on the stovetop on medium heat. It's hot enough when the margarine starts to bubble.
  3. Dunk each piece of bread in the egg mixture. Make sure the bread is totally covered.
  4. Cook the bread in the frying pan on low heat until the underside is light brown (about 5 minutes).
  5. Use a spatula to flip the bread over, and cook again for another 5 minutes.
  6. Use the spatula to transfer the French toast to a plate.
