Some things in life are meant to be blogged about. Breakfast is one of those things. Stuffed Husband and I live for breakfast. We’re those people who wake up, rub the sleepies out of their eyes, wipe the drool off their face, turn to each other and ask, “what sounds good for breakfast?” I don’t just like breakfast, I NEED breakfast. Catch me without my morning bite and I promise you’ll be sorry…and in the line of fire. Not a good thing.
Last Sunday I had a little extra time before heading out the door so I decided to surprise Stuffed Husband with a sweet treat, French toast! What can make a man, and his hungry wife, happier than the super-combo of SUGAR and CARBS for breakfast? I know it’s not healthy, but I’ll diet when I’m dead. Or I’ll be dead because I don’t diet. Who knows. Hey, I am training for my first marathon next month. Get off my back, geeez!
Here’s what you’re going to need to make this scrumptious bit of breakfast heaven:
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp of vanilla
- 1/4 cup of milk
- 5 pieces of bread, (I used whole wheat because I’m just health conscious like that…right.)
- confectioners/powdered sugar for topping
- butter to grease your pan
Follow with the milk and vanilla
Now…Stir it up until ingredients are combined. Meanwhile, heat up a skillet and melt a teaspoon or so of butter in it. You could use something lighter, like PAM, but if you’re eating the carb rich breakfast already, might as well go ALL. THE. WAY.
While your skillet gets hot, drop the bread into the egg wash
Be sure to get both sides…but dont let it sit too long or you’ll end up with soggy toast. And what a tragedy that would be.
Place the dunked bread into your skillet over medium heat
Sprinkle a little cinnamon on either side while it’s cooking. Gives it a nice color and taste. While your toast cooks, you could get a few pieces of bacon going and maybe even eggs. We have to balance out the carbs with protein…right? Notice I never mention fat. Because who needs to talk about fat when we can just eat it. Sorry to my health-conscious friends. I’ll work on it.
Allow your toast to cook on either side until golden brown. Make sure you keep a close eye on it and don’t get distracted by your ridiculously cute pups
or your ridiculously cute husband
Here is what your toast should look like
Sprinkle with powdered sugar and love…add bacon, eggs, and fruit to your plate. Try to eat just one piece of this stuff. Mission: Impossible.
Now that you’ve seen that even I can make this fine French cuisine, go make some for yourself! Make it for Saturday brunch or even for dinner! Gasp…breakfast for dinner?! Yep, breakfast for dinner is one of those things that proves God loves us. Breakfast…and beer.
