Adventures in Healthier Eating with 2 Kids and a Picky Husband

Quick French Toast…

5 WWPP Posted by 9 years ago 15 Comments

…and I mean quick! 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.

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. I ate my second with just a bit of maple syrup and oh.. MY! YUM! (Notice it in the picture)

    October 22, 2008 are great when they're chipper in the morning ;) I think I will have to try Silk now.

    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!

    Roni, Try using fresh grated nutmeg and a splash of GOOD!!!!! ~Tricia

    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 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!

    Hi Roni, Thank you for posting the video. It was a good one. I am looking forward to seeing what you do with pumpkin seeds.

    Have you ever noticed that if your egg is really fresh, most of it sticks to the first slice of bread, and it gets to thick protein-y strings of white? What do you do about that?


    February 28, 2009

    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.


    October 1, 2009

    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!


    October 1, 2009

    ...can I use a bit of greek yogurt instead if milk?


    June 22, 2010

    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! -Roni
