Friday Foods – French Toast
Just because you don’t have a kitchen doesn’t mean that you can’t whip up a five-star breakfast. This French Toast recipe from A Fork in the Trail is simple to make and will be sure to get everyone’s day started on the right foot!
Makes two servings
4 slices bread
2 servings powdered scrambled egg mix
11⁄2 teaspoons vanilla sugar
2 tablespoons nonfat powdered milk
Maple syrup or freeze-dried berries 3⁄4 cup water
Put the bread in a large ziplock freezer bag and compress the slices until they are somewhat flattened. Pour the eggs, vanilla sugar, and powdered milk in a smaller ziplock freezer bag. Put some of your favorite syrup in a small leakproof bottle, or put freeze-dried berries into a small plastic bag. Seal the smaller bag and syrup bottle (or bag of berries) inside the larger bag. Add a little vegetable oil to what you will take on your trip.
Remove the bag with the egg and milk mixture from the large ziplock freezer bag and dump it in a pot. Add 3⁄4 cup of water and combine well. Put a little vegetable oil in your frying pan and preheat it over medium heat. Dip a piece of bread into the egg mixture and fry it, flipping once, until golden. Repeat with the remaining slices. Serve with a drizzle of your favorite syrup or rehydrated freeze-dried berries.
