Foodie Friday: French Toast

Welcome to yet another Friday, dear reader. Once again, we have reached the end of another week and are one week closer to spring. With the fast-approaching baby season, I am pulling out all the stops for easy, convenient meals. Especially during baby season, meal planning and preparation get pushed aside. Our schedule is so unpredictable this time of year that I don't always have time to create well-planned, elaborate meals. There are weeks when going to the grocery store is impossible because we care for our nanny goats or babies. This time of year, simple and convenient, is the name of the game for meals.

One of the meals I know I can prepare easily and quickly, and almost always have the ingredients on hand, is breakfast for dinner. The Bibbed Wonder is always happy when a meal includes sausage or bacon, and The Bean is tickled to have French toast or pancakes. I can create a meal that pleases everyone with just a few on-hand ingredients. The Bean claims I make the best French toast. However, my recipe for French toast is merely what my daughter is used to eating, and she can be generous with compliments to make me feel good.

I thought I would share my easy recipe for French toast as an easy and convenient meal for you on a busy night. With just five staple ingredients, a source of protein, and a fruit salad, you have a well-balanced, simple, delicious meal that can be prepared in minutes.

French Toast


2 Eggs, well-beaten

1/4 Cup Sugar

1 tsp. Vanilla

1 tsp. Cinnamon

Loaf of Bread Cut Into 1.5-2 Inch Slices

Optional: Powdered Sugar, Maple Syrup, Fruit Syrup, or Jam

-Using a whisk, whip the first four ingredients until frothy.

- Heat a well-oiled skillet over medium heat

-Dip the bread slices, one by one, into the egg mixture, coating both sides of the bread

-Place on a hot skillet and fry until slightly browned; flip and fry the other side

Optional: Lightly dust with powdered sugar.

-Top with maple or fruit syrup or fruit jam

Pair with bacon, sausage patties, or sausage links and serve with a simple fruit salad.

French toast will be on standby and in our weekly meal rotation for the next several weeks. Having breakfast for supper is one of my easy go-to options on a busy weeknight. I hope you enjoy it as much as my family does. On this spring-like winter day, stay safe, be smart, enjoy simple and delicious meals, and keep washing your hands.
