oil for frying
This is the way my dad made french toast when I was a kid. This is the best. I love the crunchiness. Not mushy like most french toast. This is my favorite french toast. I use lots of syrup.
This recipe was not fun to cook at all. Oil splattered everywhere. But I must admit, it was a great twist, if you dont mind your food a little on the greasy side (you can blot most the grease out). I used wheat bread, so I dont know what it's like w/white or texas toast. Prob way better! Have a go at it if you dont mind the greasy mess you'll have to clean up afterward! (Suggest a grease-splatter cover)
I found that 1 cup of oil for frying was too much at least for the first batch.....my son enjoyed the crispy texture.
This is a really good recipe. I usually never give review, but I really like this recipe. Simple ingredients that were all on hand and quick to make. I would, however, recommend that you should only make this if you have a deep fryer. I haven't tried making it on a frying pan but it would probably be messy (as one reviewer mention). I added a little nutmeg and cinnimon to my mix, I cut my toast into halves, diagonally, and then batter. I fried for about 3mins each side and then flip. They all turned out perfect. I had no problems. I gave some to my neighbor who loved it.
here are only a FEW of the problems wrong with this recipe *the center was all mushy,i cook for fun (this was no fun at all) the heat was too high, (anyone that dares to make this ,use less oil and heat,) i dont reccommend this. i hope i have helped.
This was a good french toast recipe. I cut down on the oil.
Great Recipe!! Alittle greasy though. I dipped the bread in corn fliakes after the milk and egg then fried them came out great with a nice crunchy taste.... For sure use this recipe in the future!
My, oh my! Husband told me to stop taking a photo of it and eat it because he thinks it's the best French toast he'd ever had! I was thinking maybe other reviewers had soggy toast because of the type of bread they used, and the amount of milk called for. I used French bread and a little more egg and less milk than called for. I also made sure my oil was really hot so the bread would fry in it, not just soak it up. I made a little blueberry sauce to top it off-just delish! Hubby rates it "Five stars and two thumbs up!"
