Let them have French Toast! Kids and grown ups love these. In my house it's a sunday morning staple! You will also need butter flavored cooking spray and warmed sugar free syrup or sugar free fruit topping.
This is just so simple and versatile. You can put anything in it you like.
Make more to go with it or not. DH and I like it just this way because it can be filling depending on what you put in it.
Seasonings are to your taste. I change them all the time depending on what I add to these. The more servings you need, you can add extra of any of the ingredients. This is also a budget stretcher.
Cooking time does not include adding more than ingredients listed.
If you use meat, be sure to precook it first and drain.
After many years of yearning for the Pancakes I enjoyed as a youth at the local diner that was demolished decades ago to make way for a fast food joint and an adult mart, I set out to try or create pancake recipes until I found the right combination of the most basic ingredients. That silvered car that was a sliver of my youth can be your kitchen... sans the surly waitress with the Marlboro hanging from her lips.
Found this on the back of a Pillsbury Biscuit dough wrapper. These are so simple to put together. Making biscuits blossom and look like flower petals, sprinkle cinnamon & sugar on top and a scant of jelly in the center. Tasty!
This is a great camping or campfire recipe. I also make this at home as I had this breakfast at an old time family run restaurant. I couldn't get the recipe but this tastes close and DH said it is great. You can sub in ingredients that you normally would use or follow the recipe. I like the versatility. I have made it several ways now so will list some varied ingredients at the end.
This is an easy recipe to make into a 1 person or 10 person recipe. I imagine it could also be made larger but I have yet to do more than 10 guests for breakfast since making this.
A great healthy alternative to traditional blueberry pancakes. I found this recipe on the Biggest Loser Club. It works well with sugar free, low-calorie syrup for a truely healthy start to your day. I served it with two strips of turkey bacon.
Comfort food at it's best, this is a family favorite that goes back years! --- Jimmy Dean has a wonderful bulk sausage roll that will work great for this recipe, you may adjust the pepper flakes to suit heat level, my family likes extreme heat so I use 2 heaping teaspoons or you may use spicy sausage meat --- serve this over biscuits, I also like to serve it over mashed potatoes or fries :)
Alton Brown had a great episode on toast, and part of it featured French Toast*. This is our favorite french toast!
For a healthier alternative, replace some of the butter with olive oil. You could also use whole milk in place of the half-and-half, though Alton would not approve.
Another recipe that I found from the July/August 2006 edition of Simple & Delicious. This is a french toast bake that's a snap to assemple the night before and bake in the morning. While it's pleasantly sweet as is, drizzle raspberry syrup over the top for a finishing touch. It's really easy to vary this recipe buy using other fruits like strawberries or blueberries or even a combination of berries. Sometimes I like topping it all off with a little whipped cream. Time does not include chill time.
