I've always wondered how to make french toast - the real way.
However, I've never quite been curious enough to find out.
So, this is probably isn't how French people make their French toast.
I mean, is French toast even really French?
Anyway, this is how I regularly make my French toast.
My focus in making french toast this way is not to be fancy - but to be simple and delicious.
Believe me when I say, this French toast recipe is very simple and delicious.
As if that's not enough, it's also quite fast to do.

How to Make French Toast: 3 Healthy Tips
Before getting into the ingredients, here are 3 healthy tips for making this French toast recipe work with your fitness goals.
1. The bread
If at all possible, choose whole wheat bread over white bread. Don't worry, i've tried this recipe with both white bread and whole wheat bread.
Yes, the white bread is sweeter and more addictive.
However, I found the whole wheat bread to be just as delicious (and less guilt inducing).
2. The Eggs
Choose local, organic eggs if possible.
They don't taste that much different than conventional eggs (to me).
However, they're a good choice because of the reduced risk of exposure to some of the antibiotics that may be present in conventional eggs.
3. The oil
I make my french toast using vegetable oil spray.
This means I'm not adding any unnecessary calories to my breakfast.
Okay, onto the recipe.
This is how to make french toast.
French Toast Recipe - Naija Style
The best, healthy Nigerian French toast recipe you will find anywhere!
- 2 Slices Whole wheat bread
- 1 Egg
- Oil spray
- Salt (optional)
- Black pepper (optional)
Crack an egg onto a flat dinner plate, add a pinch of salt and black pepper, and whisk with a fork. Drop both slices of bread into the raw egg side by side
Let the bread soak for a few seconds then flip to the other side to absorb the remaining egg.
Heat a non-stick pan on medium heat. Once the pan is warm, lightly spray with vegetable oil spray and place both slices of bread into the warm pan (if your pan is too small, do them one at a time)
Once the egg on the side facing the pan is done, flip to the other side and make sure all the egg is thoroughly cooked (the egg should look fried and it should feel firm to the touch). Serve warm
