But my recipe for french toasts has a secret ingredient for it that is making a nice crunchy outer layer…

I always make it around this time of the year since my husband always get a loaf of bread from work in march… don’t ask, we don’t even remember why they are getting it 😉 And since it’s not a really good loaf I always use it to make french toasts, to my kids delight!

First thing, you need to have stale bread. Using fresh bread will make your toasts soggy and slump.  Since the bread we get is quite dry, i just let it sit unwrapped on the counter for a whole 24 hours. Switching side once in a while to make sure it dries evenly.

Next, you need to slice you bread about 1/2 inches thick. (if your bread is really moist, slice and let stale half a day or a whole day)

And then you make the eggs mix 🙂

here’s my recipe:

4 eggs

1 to 1 1/2  cup milk

a bit of vanilla

and …. a big table spoon of granulated sugar! (that’s my secret ingredient….!)

Whisk everything well in a big bowl.

heat a skillet over medium high with BUTTER! (do yourself a favor, and please use butter!)

when your skillet is ready, working quickly coat your slices of bread with the egg mix, you DO NOT want the bread to suck it up. You  really just want to coat it quick. and just do the right number of slices for your skillet. Do not prepare more bread in the mix if they are not ready to go into the skillet.

let the bread get as golden as you like it and serve with a good maple sirup!!! The sugar will make a nice crunchy outer layer 🙂

We had ours with a nice side dish of fruit salad Rachel made all by herself!

Ma petite recette de pain doré 🙂 avec un ingrédient secret qui vous fait une bel extérieur croustillant!
Premièrement, vous aurez besoin d’un pain rassis (qui a séché quelque temps, pas un pain frais et tout moelleux!)

que vous couperez en tranche de 1/2 pouces.
Mélangez ensemble dans un grand bol:
4 oeufs
1 à 1 1/2 tasse de lait
un peu d’essence de vanille
et…. une grosse cuillère à soupe de sucre granulé! (le sucre va vous donner une bel extérieur croquant!)
Faites chauffer un poêlon à medium-high avec du BEURRE! (ok, laisser faire le régime et faites-vous plaisir! utiliser du beurre!)
En travaillant rapidement, trempez vos tranches de pain dans le mélange d’oeufs, ne les laissez pas se gorger du mélange, une trempette très rapide seulement et ajouter à votre poêlon. Cuire des 2 côtés jusqu’au degré de doré souhaité. Ne préparez pas d’avance les tranches de pain dans le mélange, sinon vous aurez des tranches de pain détrempées et molles.
Servir avec une bonne dose de sirop d’érable! et une salade de fruits préparée avec amour par une petite fille de 5 ans!
