On Christmas day, we opened gifts together as a family. Here is my dad opening up one of five watches. He got one for every day of the week.
My Uncle Jeff. (He's single!)
- Texas Toast sandwich bread or any other thick cut (tip: try to buy it some days or a week prior)
- 3-4 eggs (tip: pour on a rectangle Ziploc container-the ones used by most companies for ham.)
- Salt-to taste... less than a 1/2 teaspoon for sure-to taste
- Whole or 2% fresh milk (tip: pour enough milk to make the egg mix look a "light yellow" color. all depends on how much of egg taste you like on the toast)
- 1-1 1/2 teaspoon of sugar-to taste (white or brown, I use white)
- Cinnamon-use shaker and put as much as you want up to your personal taste, you can always add directly to the bread loaf when cooking
- Vanilla-if using pure vanilla 2-3 drops should be enough, if using imitation use close to a teaspoon
Ok, mix should be ready.... taste it and make adjustments as necessary
Set your range to mid-low temp. (I set it up at 3) You want enough heat so that when you put the toast you can hear a low sizzling but do not over heat because it will burn the outside but it will not cook the inside. Also, I use PAM... spray and dry up excess with a paper towel.
Now, cut the bread slice in half in order to create "triangles" and cut some fresh strawberries.
Use a semi-flat plate in order to pour the mix just enough for two triangles-one at a time(do not dip in mix bowl as bread will get too soggy (mojado).
Take a slice and put into your semi-flat plate (do not let sit-just turn fairly quick to each side including the new third edge).
Put on pan (salten) and let it cook for approximately 1 minute per side until toasted or golden brown.
After both side have been cooked, stand up slice in order to cook the new edge.
Take out and let it site for a minute, do not serve right away.
Add butter to taste, add domino (white powder) sugar, add syrup, and don't forget the strawberries!
I hope everyone else had a wonderful holiday, a merry christmas and a happy new year.
