Level 1: I like ketchup on my egg toast. Level 2: HAHAHAHAHA this is so good. Level 3: I climbed through the rainforests of Mexico to find fresh cocoa beans and then I processed them in a factory so I could get chocolate for my babka.

Ketchup on toast wtf
Joseph Canning
Idk if this is maybe just me or its an American thing, but I'm Scottish and we don't make French toast as a sweet thing. It's like a breakfast thing and everyone I know makes it like level 1. The other two treated it like a pancake or something...
Emily: I put ketchup on it Me: Whatever floats your boat.

Chef #2 is better. He did a better job. But not the topping. He needed fruits.
Zerozilch Day ago
Penny is such a try hard and show off… just make a damn French toast lol
Katerina Patiniotis
Babka? That's a Jewish bread. French people don't use babka. Brioche is more accurate.

Does anyone cook sorta between a level 2 and 3??

Why does the food scientist always makes the level 3 chef sound the best and the level 1 chef sound the worst or something? Just my opinion

I've been having Emily's version of a French toast since my childhood and guess what it's actually good...just add some salt, pepper and chilli in the egg mixture.... No sugar! Goes pretty well with ketchup too 😂😂😂 Easy to make....perfect comfort food!
