Sweet and Simple
One of my all time favorite breakfasts is french toast. Of course having a HUGE sweet tooth probably has something to do with. It's just such a simple breakfast, yet it hits the spot every time. Of course it seems like every family has their own way of making it. Jesse looked at me like I had 3 heads the first time I put cinnamon in our french toast. So this is MY version of french toast.
Jessica's French Toast
4 slices honey wheat bread
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla
a pinch of sugar and a dash of salt
1 tbsp butter
Powdered sugar and/or maple syrup to taste
Beat the eggs in the bottom of a wide flat bowl (I actually like to use a small baking dish). Stir in the cinnamon, vanilla, sugar and salt. Let each piece of toast soak in the egg mixture on each side for 30 seconds. In the bottom of a large flat skillet or griddle melt the butter over medium high heat. Add the slices of bread and cook for about 2 minutes on each side or until the outside of the bread has a nice golden brown color. Serve with powdered sugar and/or maple syrup.
