Day 8: French Toast for Brunch

Day 8 of our 25 Days of Christmas list was make French toast for brunch.  It ended up being an impromptu gathering with a few great friends of ours.  I decided to make it into a “French Toast Bar,” mimosas, pigs in a blanket, and left over mini apple pies included.  Tim’s best friend, Theresa, had an awesome idea to add to our festive afternoon.  “Let’s make a gingerbread house with Liam!”  You don’t have to twist my arm to do anything festive this year, especially with our love bug.  Even though he can’t build the house entirely, he can help by snacking on some of the goodies and say his favorite  word “Wow!”  He also enjoyed eating the mini marshmallows during our snowball fight in the living room.

FRENCH TOAST RECIPE

What you need:

  • French toast bread (thick kind)
  • 5 eggs
  • 1 Tablespoon of honey
  • 1 Teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 1 Teaspoon of Cinnamon
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 Tablespoon of butter
  • Hot maple syrup
  • Powdered sugar (optional)

Whisk together eggs, honey, vanilla, cinnamon, and salt.  On low heat melt butter in pan (I sprayed nonstick olive oil in pan prior so that nothing sticks).  Dip both sides of bread into mixture .  Not too much cause you don’t want it too soggy.  Fry in pan 2-3 minutes on both sides until golden brown.  Then sprinkle powdered sugar on top and finish with the warm maple syrup of your choice!

Viola!  Amazing French toast!
