Breakfast foods are awesome, and especially for dinner. 😉 Buy a loaf of bread and a dozen eggs and you have yourself a cheap meal. Many have a tendency to forget about french toast but don’t put it aside any longer!
It’s so easy to make and is a cost effective meal AND it freezes easily! Just pop it in the toaster to lightly crisp and reheat. Great for those rushed mornings!
Here’s what you’ll need:
12-16 pieces of bread
3 TBS water or milk
a dash of cinnamon and/or nutmeg
Preheat skillet or griddle. I personally use an electric griddle because it uses less electricity than a stove AND it doesn’t heat up my kitchen as much, which is always a plus in the summer.
In a shallow dish whisk eggs and water. Dip one side in the egg mixture. Flip and dip the other. I like a thick coating so I leave it in the mixture for about 5-8 seconds before flipping to the other side.
Place the dipped bread onto the griddle/pan. Let cook about 2 mins and then flip to cook the other side. Remove once both sides are a light brown. Drizzle with syrup, peanut butter, strawberry topping (recipe below) and whipped cream. YUM!
Be sure to let the French Toast cool completely before you put into freezer bags to freeze. Ready for the best part? Add some homemade strawberry sauce!
Strawberry Sauce – great with waffles, french toast, cheesecake, pancakes, etc
Yields four (1/3 C) servings
1/4 C Sugar
2 TBS cornstartch
1/4 C orange juice
2 C Strawberries
1/2 tsp vanilla
In a large sauce pan, combine sugar, cornstarch, and orange juice. Stir until smooth. Add in strawberries and bring to a boil. Reduce to med high heat. Cook while constantly stirring until it the mixture thickens; about 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla.
Cool and then store in the refrigerator. Lasts roughly 9 days properly stored.
