French Toast

My kid loves French Toast. It’s one of his favorite breakfast foods. Now that school (pre-k in our case) is back in full swing – this is one of my life saver recipes for a super fast breakfast before school or even to pack as a morning school snack.

I grew up eating French Toast – and it was one of my favorites for breakfast too. So when I started making it for my kiddo it was a no brainer. I was chatting with a good friend of mine one day about feeding our babies-turned-toddlers some real food (when these milk guzzlers start requiring real food, it’s a brain buster at first trying to think of toddler friendly foods). Somehow we got to comparing French toast recipes and she told me an accidental secret weapon for making some fabulous French Toast. Want to know what it is?? Keep reading. Like most not-so-fancy French Toast recipes you should be able to whip this up from start to finish in about oh….7 minutes. And that includes gathering the long list of ingredients.

Ingredients:

  • 2 Slices of White Bread (or honey wheat or wheat or french bread)
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 tsp. Cinnamon
  • 3/4 Cup Coffee Creamer – CoffeeMate Natural Bliss Cinnamon Cream

That’s right. Coffee Creamer. That is the secret weapon in this French Toast batter. By the way, I love this creamer for my afternoon coffee, so I’ve always got a couple bottles of this stuff in my fridge.

You could even try different flavors of creamer. I prefer Cinnamon Cream. But the seasonal creamers (I’m thinking pumpkin) could be a lot of fun.

Directions:

It’s real easy y’all. Get your skillet warm and spray a little non-stick cooking spray. And make the batter…

Crack the egg in a bowl. Pour in the creamer. Sprinkle the cinnamon. And mix it. Voila.

Dip your bread slices in the batter.

Throw ’em in the pan and let it sizzle away to hot French Toast. While you wait for the French Toast to cook through on both sides – pour yourself a cup of coffee. Have a sip. You deserve it.

And just like that – with a sip of coffee. This French Toast will be done. Warm up a little syrup (one of my pet peeves is cold syrup – it’s just wrong) and drizzle it all over the toast. It doesn’t need much.

Plate it up. Serve it up. Cut it up. Bag it up (for a school snack). I don’t care how you do it as long as you eat it up. And you will. It’s rich and yummy – and it’s easy. 4 ingredients!! Can’t beat it. Try it. Your kiddos will love it. And so will you.

Enjoy – Laura!
