feeling frenchy

i love breakfast. at any hour. on any given day. who's with me??

after reading this post & this post, i knew french toast was what i was going to make for 'breakfast'....even though it was one o'clock in the afternoon, breakfast is acceptable at any hour! here's a step by step to how i created my own little french toast breakfast.

what you will need: sliced bread (i had white, but it would be yummy with whole wheat, cinnamon raisin or even bread with grains and nuts), vanilla, egg(s), salt, sugar, cinnamon, powdered sugar, maple syrup and any other toppings you heart desires (i tried it out with chopped walnuts, coconut flakes and chocolate chips)

step 1: crack an egg into a flat-bottomed bowl
(i only needed 1 egg for 4 slices of bread)
 step 2: add a teaspoon of vanilla, teaspoon of cinnamon and a pinch of salt
 step 3: add a teaspoon of sugar (optional, but i like sweet!) & mix with a fork
step 4: cover both sides of the bread with the mixture
 step 5: cook on both sides until the bread is brown &crispy
step 6: drizzle melted butter, warm maple syrup and sprinkle powdered sugar
and other toppings on your french toast
 raspberries & blackberries on the side    =)
step 8: wash all of this sweet gooyness down with a tall glass of cold milk

  Enjoy, sweets!
