French toast

serves 3

Using a shallow bowl whisk together milk, eggs, sugar, vanilla, and salt.

Dunk bread into the egg mixture.

(This step could take a little practice. Leave it too long and the bread disintegrates; not long enough, the bread doesn’t get coated.)

Melt 2 Tablespoons of butter in a fry pan over medium heat. Add however many slices of bread fit in the pan without squishing everything together.

Cook the bread until it is golden brown and then flip it, preferably with a spatula. Let the other side cook until golden brown as well.

Serve it immediately with your favorite topping.

(How about a dusting of powdered sugar or some blueberry or maple syrup?)
