French Toast

French Toast is one of the simple & easy to prepare, yet delicious meal (for simple people like me).

Step #1 : Cut cut cut.. ( or should I use Chop chop chop?) Potong ini, potong itu dan buang itu, buang ini.. Apa tu? Cut the slices of Gardenia bread into triangular shape.

Step # 2 : The tired and exhausted bread deserves a warm bath. Dip & soak the poor bread into the mixture of beatened eggs with milk, salt & pepper.. After that, don't forget to give the bread "a good shoulder massage" by flipping them inside the mixture so that both sides are evenly coated. Mesti adil dan saksama, or else the bread will merajuk.

Step # 3 : Since these are angmoh bread, they need sunbath. So, what to do next? Easy lah.. Place the egg-coated breads on the frying pan and cooked until both sides are browned (give the bread chance to enjoy the heat) :P

Step # 4 : The happy & satisfied French Toast...
And a happy me too .... cos this is my simple meal for the day. Hope you all enjoy the crappy cooking session for the day :)

Daniel Yiek said...

Too oily lah. Try this:

Put a cheese slice on a slice of bread and microwave very briefly to melt. Put kaya on the other slice. Slurrpp

Chen said...

milo O or milo susu or milo peng? :P

pink cotton,
aiyoh, jangan merajuk lah :P
u get tau sar pneah to eat woh..
so nice :)

I know u can cook lah..
LOL at your mutton curry episode :P

aiyoh, why u so tai sai chiu one? bully the last few pieces of bread.. Mine, I still have little bit of extra egg mixture.. which I made into telur goreng towards the end :P

ah nel,
cutting bread is much easier than cutting people.. at least no spurting of blood :D

daniel,
that one sounds good & tasty :)
Just that I don't fancy cheese..
Too bad butter is not a healthy choice :) But eating the roti just with kaya is nice too

Joycelyn said...

Chen,u can make many variety of nice food just using gardenia bread...hmmm...well done!
french toast is my favourite too but i only add butter n sugar to the beaten egg only.
have tried some from the cafe.some put the butter n jam as topping.some put butter n kaya(in BM) as topping.u may convert this "angmo" toast to "chinese" style by adding peanut butter as topping too(had this in HK style cafe)...we can globalise n localise food also:D

Mr. Goober said...

i am going to have french toast in the next couple of days. and it is all because of your post. today cannot have because already eaten my quota of eggs.
my style only put egg and sugar and a little water, because the bread soak up quite a bit of the eggs and i don't want to eat too many eggs. sometimes i will put strawberry jam on top after it's done. i also eat all the sides of the bread. partly lazy and partly so liuliu nice eat everything on sight!
DYK i went looking for rempeyek because of your last post?

since on this topic of french toast, savoury toast with chopped prawns on top also very nice. cut bread into cubes and have the minced prawns on top. bagus. but oily.

Chen said...

misti,
kam ngam geh?
I was posting comment at your blog and u were here at the same time.. LOL

aiyak, u made me feel guilty pulak.. made u search for rempeyek today :P
*paiseh paiseh*

yeah, i added in little bit of water too to the mixture, but I lazy to include in that earlier on ;)

Wah at the "savoury toast with chopped prawns". Lao hau sui leh.. Liuliu loh..

angel said...

Simple American said...

I must coax the missus into making some French toast this weekend. Been a while. Though I only eat ang moh Whole Wheat bread. Need all that fiber and other healthy stuff.

Chen said...

angel,

wah.... Apple centre ah? Can play and drool at all the "handsome" & "good looking" Mackie liao :P
*jealous*

misti,
kekkee... LOL at the way u describe Angeliu :P
Very creative.
U really made me ponder for a while leh regarding "the one with wings in london bridge"
*wink*

nyonya pg,
Roti Benggali ah? Haven't eat that for long time liao.. Last time I bought that on & off from the Roti Man moving around on his bike :)

Whole wheat and whole meal bread is good :) More healthy and higher fiber content :) I eat that too on & off..

zeroimpact said...

I want more pepper
yum yum yum

Chen said...

joycelyn,
no lah.. no black magic here :D
here is very clean ..
There is a origin for the liuliu thingy.. It all started 4 months plus back :D
Long long story…

Bengkali Roti or Roti Benggali is nice to eat when dipped with curries. We bought that in loaf form from the roti man and the bread is cut into the thickness we desired. Normally most people will cut the bread into thick slices :)

aceone,
okay okay and will DHL to u (DHL = Delivery Halfway Lost, I just learnt that from Kenny) LOL

ah nel,
surgical field has to be 100% sterile and free from unsterile materials. No contamination allowed from unsterile equipments or foreign materials. I guess u don't want an infected wound or abscess to develop if u undergo surgery due to unsterile equipment or contamination. U get what I mean?

zero impact,
u just wanna eat pepper? :P
I give u pepper sweet then?
Or u wanna pepper cookies?

Kristopher said...

Robin said...

Yummy Yummy..

Dr, Marvin has done a restoration on the Great Buddha temple at Le Shan.

Do visit my post and give your comments. Thanks

Chen said...

kristopher,
Yes, we have.. The World Bread Day falls on 16 October :D
Let's celebrate World Bread Day by eating bread on that particular day ;)

ah nel,
Hospital is indeed a dirty place – so many germs and bugs everywhere.
That’s why visitors who visit their family members, friends or relatives shouldn’t bring small children or babies together with them to the hospital. By doing this, they exposed the little ones (with weaker immunity system) to infection..

robin,
Time for lunch soon :)
Restoration of the Great Buddha temple at Le Shan?
Okie, I will visit your post soon….

We don't allow small children to enter our ICU for their own benefits (as visitors of course, if they come in as patients, then different stories). But sometimes, the parents don't understand why we don't allowed them to bring the small kids in.. They will say, "just for a short while only lah.." Haii...
