Feed your son with yesterday’s bread

It’s Sunday evening and you ran out of anything useful for a dinner. Yeah, you could order a pizza or something, but then you’d wait for it 30 mins or so. And your son is kranky. Sounds familiar? Yes, I often found myself in such situation.

If you have some leftovers, most importantly a slice or two of yesterday’s bread, a spoon of milk and an egg, you can make him a quick French toast. For those of you who by any chance didn’t know how to prepare this simple meal, let’s explain.

Step by step

  1. First, pour the whole egg and some milk in a bowl and beat it with a fork, until you have a yellowish consistent liquid. Add some salt and/or some Parmesan cheese if you like.
  2. Next, slice your yesterday’s bread and prepare the pan. Pour some oil in a frying pan and warm it on a stove.
  3. Soak bread slices in the mixture (prepared in the step one) and dip them into the hot oil. Be careful when doing this – the oil might start jumping on your hands! : )
  4. Fry each side of the bread for about a minute and a half, at the most.
  5. Take it out from the pan and place it somewhere out of reach from your starving child, at least until it gets a little bit colder (for obvious reasons).
  6. Serve with butter and milk…
  7. Enjoy… Yummy!
