We don't generally eat a cooked breakfast, I try to do one on a Sunday at least once a month, we eat Pancakes, Waffles, Egg and Bacon and the boy's all time favourite is the Breakfast Burrito which we have more often than not.
I have until now never made French Toast. I did have a moment and think... Scott is going to hate this! Then I thought... Cover it in cinnamon sugar and maple syrup and well he may just eat it!
Let's say I gave him no choice, I just made if for brunch and served it.
This is a fantastic way to use up a loaf of bread that is a couple of days old.
3 to 4 eggs
1/4 cup caster sugar
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup milk
1 loaf 2 day old bread
maple syrup and cinnamon sugar to serve
In a flat dish place your eggs, sugar, vanilla and milk.
I have cinnamon sugar in this handy dandy little sprinkle jar as Scott tops his Cap with this in the mornings.
Slice your bread, I like about an inch think.
I trimmed the crusts off and cut each slice in half, this is my preference.
Dip in your egg mix quickly on each side until coated.
I use a hotplate, you can do this in a frypan. Pre heat and brush with melted butter.
Fry on each side until golden. This will only take a couple of minutes.
Serve sprinkled with the cinnamon sugar and drizzled in warm maple syrup.
P. S. Scott LOVED this!
