How to Make a French Toast

How to Make a French Toast?

With the tiniest effort, some eggs, some milk, sugar, cinnamon, and thick bread slices, here is the best and easiest way to make a french toast. The best bread for french toast is the bread that is a few days old, in this way, it is easier for the bread to hold up in the milk and egg mixture, and when we fry them. If you slice them thin, the bread will be loose and fall apart even before frying.

Best Way To Make French Toast

For 4 serves of french toast, here are the ingredients we’ll need;

  • 4 eggs
  • 2/3 cup of milk
  • 1 or 2 teaspoons of cinnamon
  • 8 thick slices of bread (2 days old)
  • Butter

First, we’ll make the egg mixture. Whisk the eggs in a medium bowl, then add the milk and cinnamon. Stir until it’s mixed well. Place the mixture in a bowl that pieces of bread can fit in, and put them to soak some of the egg mixtures.

After waiting for our pieces of bread to soak a little bit, take a pan of your choice and melt the butter in it. Shake the excess mixture off of the bread and put it in the frying pan. Turn them around when they get a milk-coffee brown color. When both sides are done, our french toasts are ready to be served. If you like, some maple syrup or some berries can make them better, Bon Appetit!

How to Boil Eggs

How to Boil Eggs?

In a simple breakfast, in toasts, in ramen, or in cakes… We use eggs in almost every meal. Preferably, I like my eggs hard boiled in breakfast, but not all of us like them in the same way. Do you put your eggs to boil, and once you think that they boiled, you peel them and it is almost the same? No worries, in this article, I will teach you how to boil your eggs from soft boiled, medium, to hard boiled.

3 Different Ways to Boil Eggs

Soft - Boiled Eggs

If you like your eggs’ yolk very runny, it is the most simple one. Put the water in a pot you usually use for boil eggs, put your eggs in the water, run the stove, and once the water starts to boil, wait for 3 minutes and your eggs are ready! Now take your tea spoon, add some salt and some spice if you like, and enjoy!

Medium - Boiled Eggs

For medium boiled eggs, you should wait for 6 to 8 minutes, again, as you prefer. But you can not eat a medium boiled egg with a tea spoon, so slice it in two or three pieces, put it together with any other ingredients you like, and ta-daa, it’s ready!

HARD - BOILED EGGS

The last and the best part –at least for me- is hard boiled eggs. I usually wait 10 to 15 minutes for my eggs to boil and become the hardest of eggs. Then I peel them carefully so I don’t get burnt, slice them into pieces, add some spice. I also put other things I like, such as fries, a little bit strawberry jam, toast, and of course a beautiful coffee. 

And a tiny little note; try your hard boiled eggs in any salad of your choice, you’ll love it!

In both methods, it is important that each part of the food is cooked equally.

FRYING

Deep Frying

Frying in oil is a method that should not be preferred. In the deep frying method, the proteins in the mixture (such as milk and flour) in the food surface are coagulated and the food attracts less fat, contrary to popular belief.

Time is also very important;

When cooking thick pieces, the temperature should be reduced and sufficient time should be, otherwise the food may be cooked less allowed. The opposite is also true; small pieces should be cooked in hot oil and in a shorter time.

Cooking In Liquid

Cooking in Liquid

1. Foods such as fish, chicken are cooked with a minimum of liquid (water, liquid, milk and wine). The liquid should never be allowed to boil, but should be kept as close to boiling point as possible. Baking in a hot oven of 100 ° C is suitable for this method.

2. The term boiling is defined as “Poche” in French. With 8 cm water this method Simmering can be given as an example to. Cover all the fish and chickens with cold water and leave to boil, slow cooking over medium heat until cooked.

This method can be applied to many foods:

  1. Deep cooking; whole fish, shredded / portioned fish, seafood, whole chicken, eggs, fresh / frozen fruit.
  2. Cooking with little liquid; small whole fish, fish tenderloin, fish fillet.

Sautéing

Sautéing

It is a frequently used method for quick cooking of small and finely divided foods. There is absolutely no need to add oil if you are using a non-stick pan. However, if you do not have such pan, it may be possible to sauté by adding a teaspoon of oil.
