To make French toast, you need the right equipment to get the job done. The better these tools, the easier it will be to create your morning meal masterpiece. We have listed all the things you will need for each stage of the recipe below. This equipment is available at any leading retail store at an affordable price. You may even want to spend more to get certain high-quality equipment, as several of them can be used for other uses within your kitchen area.
Before you can get started, you will need a measuring cup to make sure you measure your ingredients properly. Several seasoned home cooks have the right expertise to observe your portions, but for most of us ‘ordinary individuals’ we need some help from measuring cups. For French toast you don’t need anything complicated, just something that can measure thirds and fourths of a cup.
You will need something to combine all of your eggs, milk, vanilla extract, and other ingredients to top your French toast. You can use a standard bowl, however it is much easier to do if you have a separate mixing bowl. This is particularly important when you need to serve many people.
Once you have combined your components within the mixing container, you need something to help you combine everything. A regular putty knife will do the job, but it could also leave your arm stiff and sore. We recommend using an egg mixer or, better yet, an electric hand mixer.
Now that all the components are mixed, it is time to soak the bread and cook it. While a standard skillet is sufficient, to get the best and most uniform golden finish on your French toast, you’ll want a high-quality skillet. The thicker the pan, the better.
You need to prepare both sides of your bread and something tells me that turning it by hand is not the best idea. That’s where a turner comes in. All tumblers are just the same, but if you want one that will last a lifetime, you’ll want to spend a little more on a high-quality tumbler.
Now that your morning meal is complete, you need a presentation that does it justice. Plates and cutlery are a must. Also, it helps to get a tray to put them on. Ultimately, you can spruce up the presentation along with things like a fruit bowl, placemat, flowers, and other things. Get creative here and really do what needs to be done to make the morning special.
