Hello easiest breakfast to make ever. I’m glad we’re friends.
Let’s talk about this french toast. Cause’ it makes me super happy.
Not only is it mixed with Silk’s dairy-free holiday nog, and some eggs, and nutmeg, and cinnamon, and a little salt, but it’s also topped with powdered sugar, maple syrup, marshmallows, and anything else that your heart desires.
The actual toast of the french toast combo is day old challah bread, and the way it soaks up all the yumminess of the french mixture is delicious.
Then you just fry it on the skillet and voila. French toast for days.
I literally made this in three batches. Yes, we’re one of those families that NO ONE has the same wake up time ever.
So I made it once for an early morning breakfast, then for a midmorning snack, and lastly for an early lunch (and yes, I cooked it for other people, crazy.) and the french toast tasted just as good every time. I just stored the mixture in the fridge in between each.
So if you have family or some friends staying the night, and not everyone wakes up at the same time, I recommend this brekkie. For shizzle.
This week things are a little nutso in my neck of the woods. My parents host an annual conference for our school, and scheduling gets cray cray. So I made this breakfast.
And it’s officially the perfect breakfast to make wednesday thursday and friday too to get everyone’s creative juices flowing while we finish getting everything together.
It’s a really fun conference, and I even get to show off this here blog. Vivian and I have to give a speech (yikes) and it’s just mayhem over here, in a totally good way. I’ll make sure to post some pics when we’re done.
So I first found the recipe for this french toast on the side of Silk’s nog carton. It looked amazing and I couldn’t wait to try it. I did take some liberties and changed it to make it my own, and I think it is so good.
Chestnuts roasting on an open fire, jack frost nipping at your nose. Name that tune.
Can we just sing Christmas carols and eat this french toast every day until Christmas?
I’m down with that.
