Bread. French, brioche, challah, or baguette bread are ideal for the classic version of French toast. However, I used whole wheat or Italian multigrain bread sandwich bread, which is soft and with fiber. Choosing white grain or whole grain is your personal choice.
Hot sauce. It spices up the toast and intensifies the taste. A dash of hot sauce would be perfect in here.
Serrano pepper. Deseed them to suit your heat tolerance. Leave the seeds on if you want a hot and spicy French toast. I usually remove the seeds partially for moderate heat. Swap with any green chili pepper according to the availability.
Turmeric powder. It enhances and brings out a rich golden color to the toast.
Garlic powder. An aromatic ingredient that makes the dish more inviting.
How to make French toast
This recipe can be made in many variations and ingredients. This is the basic recipe.
Add eggs, milk, hot sauce, turmeric powder, minced serrano pepper, garlic powder, and salt in a bowl. And whisk until frothy.
Gently dip each bread slice into the egg mixture to coat it well. And drip off the excess mixture. Cook it on the stovetop in a pan by drizzling half a teaspoon of butter. Cook for a minute on each side or until it becomes golden brown.
Serve French Toast with available fruits and top with roasted tomato.
Refrigerate. Transfer the excess or leftover spicy French toast to an air-sealed container. And store them in the refrigerator to use within a day.
Freeze. These are good to store for up to 3 months when frozen. For this, arrange the toast in a single layer until frozen. And save them in the zip lock bags. This way, it's easy to take out the right portion and saves freezer space. To thaw, leave them in the refrigerator overnight.
Reheat. This toast can be reheated in three ways: over the stovetop, oven, or toaster. For the oven arrange the toast in the baking tray, and bake it at 375°F for 10-15 minutes or until it turns hot. For stove top, the toast over the skillet and cook in medium heat until hot. For toaster-pop them into the toaster and toast till it turn thoroughly warm.
