Johns Basic French Toast Recipe

So I attempted to get John in the kitchen, since he said he would start cooking, or learning to cook on this trip. Well that was 5 months ago, and while he's proven he's very capable of boiling water, that's about where it ends. So I proposed that for 1 week where he takes over in the kitchen and I do the dishes. Somehow he managed to weasel his way into only making 4 breakfasts and 1 lunch, but at least I was able to push him to try something new (the French toast), baby steps, right? So here's Johns simple but delicious French toast recipe that actually turned out great- I was so proud! We used special Bahamian bread (cinnamon and coconut) which made it extra yummy! 

Preparation Time: 5 mins Cook Time: 10 mins

4-5 pieces of bread
2 eggs
1 Tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
2 tbsp milk or cream

Mix eggs, milk and spices (I also like to add a tsp of vanilla) in a shallow bowl. Take each slice of bread and dip it in the mixture until it is completely covered. On a greased frying pan or skillet, fry it for 1-2 minutes on each side, or until golden brown. Continue with remaining slices. Serve with maple syrup. 

It's also delicious if you mix cinnamon and brown sugar together and sprinkle it over the French toast right after its done.
