French Toast Recipe

Two years ago on Christmas Day, I got all Super Mom and made a huge breakfast.  We had Baked French Toast, Sausage Egg Casserole, Bacon, hash-browns, on and on.  We were a family of 4 then, with one being a newborn and another just 2 years old.  What was I thinking?  I was stressed beyond belief by the time breakfast was over. Plus, I had friends coming for a big dinner as well.

Not this year!  I made it easy on myself.  It did help that we were all getting over that nasty stomach bug that was going around.  I made French Toast and it was delicious!  What was even better was that it took me very little time and effort.  Everyone was pleased, bellies full and ready to enjoy the rest of the day as a family.  I think it will be my new Christmas morning tradition!

French Toast Recipe

4 eggs
2/3 cup milk (whole or 2%)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Butter
Warm Syrup of Choice
Day old French Bread Loaf (or more-you will have plenty egg mixture for 2-3 loaves)
Griddle or Large frying pan

Beat eggs, milk, vanilla and cinnamon in a large bowl.  Cut French Bread into one inch slices (or larger).  Dip French bread and evenly coat both sides in egg mixture.  Place bread on Griddle and allow to thoroughly cook on both sides (about 2-3 minutes per side).  Bread will brown from toasting.  Serve with butter and warm syrup.

Tip:  I get my French Bread from Sams Club.  You can get about 6-8 long sub rolls for under $4.  We love to use this bread for french toast, bread for Italian dinners and turkey subs for lunch.

I hope that you enjoy this recipe.  Learn from my previous mistakes.  Make something simple and delicious for those holiday meals.  You will be less stressed and get to enjoy the day more!
