So, if you think this is a food blog, you’re about to be sorely disappointed. I am not a food diva. I’m a mom. A busy mom with a son who has some food restrictions. I have learned to LOVE to cook for my kids. They are such healthy, happy and willing, taste testers. It sort of turns the potentially stressful mealtime into something I look forward to.
You will not find exact measurements here. But you will find the ingredients I used and hopefully be inspired to experiment with what you have in your own kithcen.
Bread (I used Gluten Free)
Eggs (I use 2 whole, 2 whites)
Cinnamon (my kids really like it so I used about a teaspoon)
Milk ( I used Coconut, I might use, Hemp or Almond as well. By all means if you do dairy at home use it) about a tablespoon
Oil (Again I used Coconut, which adds a flavor that my kids love but butter or safflower would work too)
Scramble up the eggs, add cinnamon and milk. Dip the bread in so it’s coated well on both sides. Add oil into a frying pan and cook egg dipped bread. SIMPLE.
The fruit was made from some plums (I’ve done similar with berries) that were on their way out. (about 4 small) I cut them up. Added some red wine, honey, maple syrup, nutmeg and cinnamon. The sauce and plums reduces to the consistency of chuncky cranberry sauce. I’d made it the night before and stored it in the fridgde. In the morning I put it in a pan added some diced apples (I had 2 small green) a tad more syrup. Cooked till the apple were warm but still crumchy. Served atop the French Toast along side some turkey sausages.
This meal takes under 30 minutes and is always a huge hit. I can serve it for Breakfast or Dinner with cheers from the judgdes.
