French toast might actually be my favorite breakfast food–at least this version. Some restaurant-style french toast dishes can be too sweet, or overloaded with stuff on top (bananas! peanut butter! strawberries! chocolate chips!), but this quick, five-minute version (seriously!) tip toes that line perfectly. It’s simple, it will make your house smell amazing and your Sunday morning even that much better!
- 3-4 pieces of bread (your choice which kind!)
- 3 eggs
- 1 tablespoon butter
Mix the cinnamon (again, it’s up to you how much. I like to keep my french toast mild, so I only use about 2 teaspoons) and eggs in a bowl, scrambling with a fork until combined. Heat a skillet over medium heat on the stove, melting the tablespoon of butter. Soak your bread in the egg mixture, being sure to coat both side evenly. Place in the pan and cook, flipping the french toast occasionally, until both sides are browned and a bit caramelized.
Serve the french toast with a dusting of powdered sugar (if you want) and some maple syrup (Vermont Maid was a staple in our house growing up). Cut it up, then enjoy with some coffee and these links from around the web this week:
