French Toast

Quick & Easy Home Cooked Breakfast…

Some days you’re just in the mood to have a warm, home cooked breakfast. Pancakes, French toast, cinnamon rolls, you name it; they all sound pretty appetizing, but can take up a significant amount of time and effort.  Well thanks to Pinterest, here’s a quick and easy recipe for some classic French toast. Another bonus to this recipe: it makes two pieces of French toast, so you don’t have to worry about what to do with leftovers if you’re just making breakfast for one.

french toast ingredientsOne of the nice things about French toast is that the ingredients are pretty basic, so you probably have everything you need lying around in your kitchen. Simply whisk together your eggs, milk, cinnamon and vanilla extract, and you’re ready to start dipping your bread! Don’t forget to start heating up your pan (or griddle) while you mix all your ingredients. Although the recipe says to heat your pan to medium-high, it might be best to cook your French toast at a medium to medium-low heat so that you can cook the French toast through and not just burn the coating (I learned the hard way).

If You Know What You’re Doing

french toast dippingWhen dipping your bread, try not to let the bread soak in the egg mixture. Although the recipe simply said to dip and coat the bread, I let it soak in the mixture for a bit and I’m pretty sure that’s what made my French toast a little unappetizing (this was also my first time ever making French toast).

Once you’ve dipped your bread, lay it on your pan and cook both sides until golden brown. Add some syrup and sprinkle on a little powdered sugar (of which there was none in my pantry) and enjoy! Quick and easy French toast that is ready to enjoy in just minutes. Unfortunately, I wasn’t a big fan of the taste, but you already know why.

Green Eggs & Ham

I think at some point or another, we’ve all read the Dr. Seuss classic Green Eggs and Ham, or at least have had someone read it to us. I remember my little brother used to be OBSESSED with this book. He especially liked it after his teacher brought in green eggs and ham for the whole class to eat for breakfast, and after that he went through a phase where he would only eat his eggs if they were green.

With St. Patrick’s Day coming up this weekend, I was trying to look for some fun activities or treats on Pinterest that would help us get in the holiday spirit, and I was so thrilled to come across a pin that featured green eggs and ham. It brought me back to the days not only of when my brother was younger, but when I was a kid as well.

Green eggs & ham rawMaking green eggs and ham really is as simple as just adding a few drops of food coloring to your scrambled eggs. The recipe in this pin uses six eggs so it recommends 3 drops of food coloring, but if you’re cooking fewer eggs then a drop or two will do. The milk in the eggs helps make your eggs nice and fluffy (a trick I learned a long time ago). I also liked that the ham was scrambled right into the eggs instead of being served on the side.

Making green eggs and ham is a fun and easy treat to make with your kids, or to just bring out your inner child one morning. If you are going to make them for your kids though, I would recommend reading the book with them the night before and then surprising them with this pinperfect breakfast! And in the spirit of St. Patty’s day this week, we can all use a little green eggs and ham.
