French Toast For Breakfast



French toast is one of my favorite foods. It is delicious, and it takes no more than 5-10 minutes to make! So, not only is it a great addition to a Sunday morning brunch, but it is also a great weekday morning treat... Try making it on a weekday, really, and it will feel almost as if the weekend is starting early...

Did you know that French Toast in French is le pain perdu, which literally means lost bread. Apparently, a long time ago when preservatives did not exist, and eating fresh bread was a norm, in order to save a day or so old bread, the French brilliantly came up with the idea of the French Toast. And for that I am very grateful!

I love my French Toast with butter, maple syrup and organic berries. My boys have it with lots of sugar powder and, sometimes, with a little bit of cinnamon for that special kick.

Shopping list for 2:
2 tbs butter
2 eggs
1/4 cup milk (I mix skim milk and heavy cream for a better taste!)
1tsp honey or sugar (optional)
1/2 tsp vanilla
Pinch salt
2 slices of bread of your choice (I use whole grain bread, but, obviously, French Baguette works well also.)
Organic berries, maple syrup, sugar powder, cinnamon sugar, sautéed apples or peaches (optional)
Break eggs into a wide shallow bowl (I personally use a pie dish - it has a flat bottom and makes it easy to soak in the bread), beat eggs lightly with a whisker or fork, stir in the milk, honey, vanilla, and salt.
Soak the bread slice for 30-45 seconds on each side. Repeat with the second slice.
Over medium heat, heat skillet coated with a layer of butter. Transfer bread slice to skillet, heating until golden brown on both sides and cooked through.
Serve with butter, syrup, or powdered sugar, or cinnamon powdered sugar, AND organic berries.
Enjoy!
