Hello beautiful! I'm excited to share a simple, delicious meal with you today. Although it is typically found on breakfast menus, I like to eat it any time of the day! =) But if you are a bit more traditional, tomorrow I'll share how to make it more "lunchy".
Easy Cinnamon French Toast
Ingredients: 3 eggs 2/3 - 3/4 cup of half and half (milk works too) Cinnamon 1 Tbsp Coconut Oil ( or butter) Pat of Butter 1-2 tsp Powdered Sugar Syrup
Place a cast iron skillet on the stove top and preheat the pan to medium high.
While the pan is preheating, place the eggs and half and half in a pie dish (or other shallow pan). Gently whisk the eggs into the half and half. Generously sprinkle cinnamon over the mixture and whisk it in a bit. The cinnamon will tend to clump, so be careful.
Place some butter or coconut oil in the pan. Swirl the pan as your let the oil melt. The pan should be lightly coated in oil.
Dip a piece of bread in the egg mixture. Quickly flip it. Then gently let a bit of the excess egg drip off before placing it in the hot frying pan.
Wait 1-2 minutes and then check the underside of the toast. When it is turning brown and golden, flip it over and allow the french toast to cook on the other side.
HINT: To test if the french toast is done, you can gently touch the center of the toast to see if you feel and wetness or you can look for bits of uncooked (raw) egg still on the toast. If you see or feel either of these, your french toast needs a bit more time. Feel free to flip it back and forth several times if necessary.
Top the warm french toast with butter, syrup, and a bit of powdered sugar.
HINT: The syrup is best warmed up.
Then grab your knife and fork...and ENJOY!
I hope you all enjoy this simple recipe! And don't forget to check back tomorrow for an awesome expansion of this dish!
