Quick French Toast… Video Post

FrenchToast

…and I mean quick! Seriously, the video is 15 minutes. It took me 15 minutes to make a warm, healthy home cooked breakfast for the toddler before school. That 15 minutes included a bit of discipline, a pumpkin show off, a mini-commercial, the toddler cracking my eggs and scooping my spices. It was fun, fast, healthy, and everything I want family time to be (although, I do have to curb the toddler’s self expression to talk to you! LOL)

I don’t know about you but I can wake up 15 minutes early every day if this is what I have to look forward to! :~)

Oh! and YIKES! I totally forgot my intro screen! LOL not a big deal, you probably wouldn’t have even noticed.

Here’s what I did but remember, take it and run! Quick French Toast

  • 1 egg
  • splash of your favorite milk (about an ounce)
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 4 slices of your favorite whole grain bread
  • non-stick cooking spray

Heat a non-stick frying pan or griddle over medium heat.

whisk the egg, milk and spices in a flat bottom bowl or dish.

Spray the skillet with non-stick spray.

Dip the bread quickly in the egg (both sides) and place on the skillet.

Flip after 2-3 minutes when the toast become a nice golden brown.

Serve with a bit of syrup!

Note: the Nutritional Information may vary based on the bread you use. And I take back what i said in the video. I ate my second with just a bit of maple syrup and oh.. MY! YUM! (Notice it in the picture)

    I love french toast but I always think it *seems* like too much work in the morning. I’ll have to remember your video next time – you had a toddler and still got it done in less than 15 min!

    Hey Roni…i watch but rarely post. this looks like a good take on an old fave! I always smother mine in butter and syrup…but you’re right…it really isn’t necessary. THe cinnamon and nutmeg sound great…and adding a vanilla flavor to the egg mixture like Tricia said is a fab idea too…we are gonna try this the next time we do french toast! Thanks for letting us sit in on your morning w/ the toddler!!

    my mom just yelled at me… saying I forgot the vanilla! LOL At least I used vanilla milk I said! HA!

    I added it to recipe as she always added it too!

    OMG… when Ryan asked you “Mommy, why are you talking to yourself?” I just melted. That was so cute and so funny! Another great video guys!

    Laura – There’s a name for that… can’t think of it right now. You need to beat the heck out of it fish that membrane out before dipping.

    But yea… I get it sometimes too.

    Wow that looks good! YUM! Too bad I have a cold, i dont feel an appetite for that :( Ryan is being a very good helper, and hes getting BIG!

  7. Deb

    lol just passed the part of ryan asking why are you talking to yourself then he said oh yeah Im talking to myself! LOL

    you could skip it all together. I only add it to stretch the egg a bit. If you want to use yogurt then just thin it with some water.

    Hope that helps!
