Breakfast

French Toast

Lazy Saturday morning breakfasts are a favorite of ours and french toast is in the normal rotation. French toast is also great for a quick mid-week dinner, who doesn’t love breakfast for dinner?!

French Toast is also a sentimental food for me because it is one of the first meals that the hubby and I made together when we were dating. It’s been a special treat for us ever since! I never thought I needed a recipe for french toast. I mean, you just dip bread in an egg and milk mixture, sprinkle with cinnamon and then fry it up. A few months ago I decided that our french toast needed a makeover. After doing some very scientific recipe research on Pinterest I noticed that there were lots of french toast recipes out there.

After lots of taste testing I finally figured out the right recipe for us! Comment below and let me know if you try it.

French Toast

Since the bread is soaked in an egg mixture, this recipe is a great way to use up stale bread. In the pictures I used a french loaf, but the bakery at our local grocery store has a great homestyle loaf that I typically have on hand.

1 and 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 large eggs
1/2 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/8 cup sugar
8 slices bread

  1. Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat.
  2. In a shallow bowl whisk together eggs, milk, cinnamon, vanilla and sugar until combined.
  3. Dip bread in egg mixture and cook in the skillet, approximately 2-3 minutes per side.
  4. Serve topped with syrup, fresh berries or powdered sugar.
