Wyatt's Easy French Toast
Time for another amazing breakfast recipe for your weekend! This week I'm so excited to have Christina from The Whole Cook on the blog! Christina is a wife and mommy to two sweet hearts. Christina blogs about life with her littles, her faith, and so many delicious recipes. Fun fact about Christina? She can sing Jingle Bells while skipping the first letter of every word... ummm I need to hear this! But without further ado, here is her recipe for Wyatt's Easy French Toast.
I ate a lot of french toast growing up. A lot. If I had to evaluate my childhood breakfast tastes I'd say that the pancake was the fancy version of toast, the waffle was the fancy version of the pancake, and the french toast was the greatest invention in the history of breakfast food. Now as an adult all that has changed as I've discovered the joys of a quiche. Hallelujah! But as a kid I knew it was going to be a great day when I woke up to french toast.
My son completely shares this sentiment. He's only five and he's already figured out the joys of a sticky plate of eggy toasted goodness. Smart kid.
Today I'm so excited to share his current favorite french toast recipe with you. We do some pretty creative versions in my home but it seems like we return to this more basic recipe time and time again. The addition of vanilla and cinnamon make it special. The toppings of honey and powdered sugar make my son giggle. All in all it's a dish that will get your weekend off to a great start.
It's perfect for entertaining because you can do a toppings bar and give your guests lots of fun options. Who wouldn't enjoy a little strawberry puree? Blueberries? Almond butter? The possibilities are endless!
I hope your family enjoys this recipe just as much as we do!
- 6 slices of bread
- 3 eggs
- 1/4 cup of milk
- 1/2 tbsp vanilla extract
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- Toppings: honey & powdered sugar
In a mixing bowl combine your eggs, milk, vanilla extract, and cinnamon. Whisk. Dip each slice of bread into your mixture one at a time. Flip your bread so that both sides are coated.
Add a dab of butter to a hot skillet. I typically cook my french toast on medium high heat but every stove varies. When the butter is sizzling I know my pan is ready.
Add your coated bread to the pan. Flip when browned. Cook the remaining side and remove from heat. Repeat until all bread slices are finished.
Pile that glorious toast on a plate and add your desired toppings. If you want to dine like Wyatt you'll want honey and powdered sugar.
