Prep time: about 15 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 c. milk
  • dash of vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp. margarine
  • 2 pieces of bread

Directions:

  1. Crack the egg into a medium-size bowl and beat well. Then mix in the milk and vanilla extract.

  4. Cook the bread in the frying pan on low heat until the underside is light brown (about 5 minutes).
  5. Use a spatula to flip the bread over, and cook again for another 5 minutes.
  6. Use the spatula to transfer the French toast to a plate.
