My kitchen guard was on duty early this morning.
I made French toast for the masses and the smell was a bit more than she could handle.
How could anyone say no to this gimme face?
I also made a simple tuna salad and thought I would show you the recipe. I emptied 2 jars of tuna with it's oil into a bowl. Always use the oil. It has lots of flavor. I also added a can of black beans. You can use any kind of beans.
Add a diced medium onion.
And several chopped carrots.
Some diced celery.
I like green olives in my tuna salad so I added them too.
Add the juice of one lime.
Some salt and pepper.
About four diced hard boiled eggs.
About half cup of sour cream.
And one cup of mayonnaise.
Mix this thoroughly.
Then add some prepared pasta.
I serve a scoop of it on some spring lettuce.
My new deep fryer.
And my new All-Clad griddle. This is a wonderful griddle.
I tried them both out this morning. I made sour cream doughnuts in the deep fryer.
Quite a nice deep fryer. It is a Waring Pro.
I made maple frosted doughnuts.
And some glazed, a few with jam.
Here is my recipe for French toast. Add 10 eggs to the bowl of your mixer.
Add about a half cup of sugar.
A teaspoon or so of vanilla extract.
I also add about a teaspoon of vanilla powder. You can skip this step if you don't have the powder.
Add about a cup and a half of milk.
Slice a dense loaf of bread into 1 inch thick slices and lay them in rectangular pans. Pour the egg mixture over the bread.
Turn them over a couple of times to coat them and let them sit and absorb the egg mixture. This recipe made 27 pieces of French toast so you can half the recipe for less.
Lay them out on a buttered griddle. You can use a frying pan if you don't have a griddle.
Cook them until they turn golden brown.
Serve them with maple syrup.
