I watched a french toast recipe on YouTube last night and bought ingredients today, I'm tempted to make it now but that's probably not the smartest after-gym food I should cook steak instead

I made french toast successfully, but too much of it. It probably won't be a regular thing for me.

@gargron recipe for french toast or french recipe for toast

@Gargron @fraggle
I leave in France for about 50 years now, and never seen this. It looks a little like "pain perdu" (lost bread), that we made sometimes with old and hard bread, but rarely with this kind of bread and that's note so popular, but not so bad. Maple syrup make me think about Quebec (french speaking Canada) recipe instead?
We instead use baguette (french stick bread), or "pain de campagne" (countryside bread) bread bowl with less refined grain flour, to make toast for breakfast, but only by put in in toaster, and add butter and/or jam when it's still hot.
@Gargron @fraggle
He perhaps think about Croque-Monsieur that is very popular here (Croque-Madame is a variant with an egg above).

@Louisa Let's see how I feel after steak/pasta. I usually feel too tired to do anything.

@ocean I'm trying to remember if I've ever had tofu. I probably don't want it though.

@Gargron Y-you've never h-had tofu *Cries*

You gotta eat some Chinese food!!!!!!!1
It's sooo good!!!!!!!!!!

It's also really common in Japanese food!
Have you never had Miso soup?

@ocean No, I've had pork curry katsu in Camden once

@Gargron When this pandemic junk is over
You gotta get some Chinese food! And get something with tofu~
It's sooo delicious owo

@ocean @Gargron

Soft tofu, scrambled, with some soy sauce, chili oil and (this is very important) Sichuan Pepper oil, heated and served on toasted wholegrain rye bread

(entire populations of both East and West turn to stare at me in horror)

don't knock it until you've tried it

@Gargron Hmm, a steak after a workout does not sound like an option (I would not go for it anyways). You need energy and digesting meat will take time.

@copyme I usually eat meat after gym, it'll be fine.

@Gargron increase the protein content by making a monte cristo, which is to say, a french-toasted ham & cheese sandwich

@Gargron You need Protein *and* Carbs after working out! So french toast sounds perfect. :) (One could argue about the fat, maybe, but where's the fun in that?)

@Gargron hey I'd rather send you a toast that you don't poison yourself. What is Mastodon doing without you. The elephant as you know, so hope I never forget. So stay healthy. Cooking often went wrong for me. So I know how this can happen or how it can happen quickly. Because I experienced it personally.

@Gargron Almost looks like potato pancakes. Well then, good hunger. Did you bake bread And is that sugar on the fried bread? Enjoy your meal.

@Gargron doesn't look like too much to me. Slap some brown sauce on there and get it down yer face hole.

re: auto cw: could contain food 

@gnomon @Gargron
That's just not french toast... we call this "pain perdu" and only use eat to avoid to throw away old bread... As french are really addict to bread, they don't eat very often this, because bread is finished quickly and don't have the time to become old, dry and hard. The two mosts eaten toasts are just, as said in a branch of this thread more salty: toasted bread + butter for the morning (sometimes add it jam), or croque-Monsieur/croque madame) bread + ham + béchamelle + cheese. This is the most famous toast in france, than we can eat in any bar/brasserie.

@remram44 @Gargron 👌 👍 😎 Geiles Desing leider für mich nicht übersetzbar & mit Englisch. Ich hatte es nie wirklich gekonnt. Besonders nach meinem Unfall wie Es war ein leidenschaftlicher Sport. Den ich genauso betrieben hatte. Nur nicht das Geld dafür hatte. Doch in meinem Leben hatte ich immer Bleifuß. Downhill war mein Sport & einen Tag später als Michael Schumacher dasselbe passiert.Bei mir mit dem Fahrrad.Daher überhaupt kein English mehr

@Gargron It's just a big image (2.7 MB), took a while to load on my phone. You said you had "too much of it" so I made a joke 😐 sorry

@remram44 Oh no, that was funny, I just didn't realize the photo was 3 MB large 😅

@Gargron I tried to make french toast once, but eventually it looked like "鸡蛋馒头片”(a Chinese fried food made from egg liquid and sliced steamed buns). But now I realize that at least in terms of apperence, there are no difference between french toast and 鸡蛋馒头片.😂 😂 😂


It freezes well. Just toss into toaster to thaw and warm.
