Good Morning French Toast

10.25.12

Casey brought home a delicious loaf of sour dough bread the other day. I was very grateful, but for a family of 3 1/2 eaters (1/2=Cali), a huge loaf is doomed to go to waste. What to do…make french toast of coarse and freeze all the uneaten pieces. Cali and Ava were fans, but who isn’t a fan of french toast. I used to be fanatical about only eating 100% whole wheat bread. This wasn’t the best mind set to have because one, we were missing out on some delicious other kinds of breads and two, it was making me a little OCD…never a good thing;) So yes, while 95% of the time we do go with 100% whole wheat, there are those few occasions we will indulge in the other yummy stuff. If you are interested in figuring out why eating 100% whole wheat is a great option for yours and your kids’ diets, go here.

 

 

1/2 cup  2% milk

3 eggs

1/4 tsp salt

1/8 tsp nutmeg

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Coconut non-stick spray

6-7 slices of sour dough

 

Preheat Griddle to medium high heat. Meanwhile, whisk all ingredients together. Once griddle is hot, spray with non-stick coconut oil. Dredge one slice of bread into egg mixture. One-two seconds per side. You don’t want these soaking wet! Place on the griddle and cook on each side for about 2-3 minutes. Should be golden brown on each side when done. Repeat with the rest of the bread slices. Serve immediately with slices of strawberries and  dusted with powdered sugar. To make them really yummy…spread a bit of butter on before dusting! If you have extras left over, place in a freezer ziplock bag and freeze. Thaw in the fridge, then heat to warm.
