Quick French Toast in a Mug
I am on a new Kick, making Foods in Mugs, Cups and Muffin Tins, Single servings you can whip up in minutes, a meal, a snack easy and fun to make, teach the kids how to cook, save making a whole pan of something you don't need to finish or don't want to!
What you Need:
First you need bread. white will work fine, or whatever you have on hand. I prefer my french toast soft-ish but if you like a little crunch go for a baguette. You’ll need one or two pieces of bread per mug. I like to make 2 mugs at once so I can split an egg, but you can totally make one big mug with more bread and a whole egg. Use what you have on hand, stale is good
Cut up your bread.
Get your mugs ready. Butter the inside, either rub a pat of butter around, or you can melt the butter in a microwave and slosh it around. Up to you.
Place the bread in the mug of your choosing. I used two mugs this time but one big cup totally works. About a slice or a slice and a half will do it. Smash it down a bit but don’t compact it so much cause you need the liquid to be able to work it’s way in.
Now in a separate mug or safe glass do the following:
-crack and egg into it
-add 3 tablespoons of milk
-if you like your french toast really sweet or vanilla y, add a single drop of vanilla extract(I love my vanilla)
How to Make it:
Mix it all together with a fork.
Pour the mixture into your mugs. Smash it a little, and give it a minute to soak down into the bread.
Now stick your mug in the microwave. Start with one minute, then add ten seconds at a time until it’s cooked to your liking (no runny eggs). In my microwave that’s 1 minute, 20 seconds.

Add syrup. You have to have syrup. Or whip cream.Or Both
