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
1/4 cup milk (I mix skim milk and heavy cream for a better taste!)
1tsp honey or sugar (optional)
1/2 tsp vanilla
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)
