Lately, I have been making and eating all of my meals in mugs. French toast, macaroni, eggs, cake- you name it! If you want quick and easy meals or snacks, check out these recipes!
2-Minute French Toast in a Cup Recipe – from here!
First you need bread. This is pan de mie, which is basically just french for sandwich bread. Your weber white will work fine, or whatever you have on hand. I prefer my french toast soft-ish but if you like a little crunch go for a baguette. It truly does not matter. An old croissant. A nutty multigrain. A pile of tortillas might even work, i’m not kidding. Anyway, you’ll need one or two pieces of bread per cup. I like to make 2 cups at once so I can split an egg, but you can totally make one big cup with more bread and a whole egg. Work with what you’ve got.
Get your cup or cups ready. Butter the inside, either rub a pat of butter around, or you can melt the buter in a mircowave and slosh it around. Up to you.
Place the bread in the cup of your choosing. I used two small cups this time because my pesky husband wanted in on the action, but one big cup totally works. About a slice or a slice and a half will do it. Smoosh it down a bit but don’t compact it so much cause you need the liquid to be able to work it’s way in.
Now in a separate cup or ramekin do the following:
-crack and egg into it
-add 3 tablespoons of milk
-if you like your french toast really sweet or vanilla-y, add a single drop of vanilla extract (I don’t do this, but it might make you love it even more)
Mix it all together with a fork.
Pour the mixture into your cup/cups. Smoosh it a little, and give it a minute to soak down into the bread.
Now stick your cup in the microwave. Start with one minute, then add ten seconds at a time until it’s cooked to your liking (no runny eggs). In my microwave that’s 1 minute, 20 seconds.
Mmm, eggy cinammon-y bread. Yes!
