3. French toast
Delicious doesn’t have to mean complicated. But if you want something a bit more involved than just Weetbix and milk for a camping breakfast, French Toast should do the trick.
Basic recipe- ingredients
- 2 eggs
- 1⁄2 cup milk
- 1⁄4 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)
- 1⁄2 teaspoon cinnamon sugar
- 6 slices bread/rolls – if large, can slice into fingers
- Beat eggs in a shallow bowl. Add milk, vanilla, and cinnamon sugar, and beat until frothy.
- Soak each slice of bread in the egg mixture, first on one side, then the other.
- Cook both sides on a preheated hotplate/frypan until golden. If needed you can season the hotplate/frypan with a knob of butter before toasting the bread.
- Serve with maple syrup drizzled over bread, or cinnamon sugar sprinkled lightly. Adding bacon on the side makes it that extra bit yummy!
