Basic French Toast

1 large egg
2 tablespoons butter, melted
3/4 cup milk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 tablespoons sugar
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
6 slices day-old bread
oil to grease the pan
1. Heat the pan over medium heat for a few minutes.
2. Beat the egg lightly in a shallow dish or pie plate. Whisk in melted butter, milk and vanilla. Then add sugar, flour, and salt. Whisk until the mixture is smooth.
3. Dip the bread in the egg mixture – about 30 seconds on each side. Let the excess drip off each slice back into the pan.
4. Coat the pan with butter or oil, then cook the bread on each side until golden brown – about two minutes for the first side and one minute for the second side.
Note: If you have extra french toast and re-heat the next morning in the toaster oven for about five minutes. Re-heating in the oven or toaster oven keeps the bread crispy, not soggy.
