Recipe Wednesday

I just spent four days at my daughter's babysitting three young ladies ranging in ages 12(almost 13), 11 & 3. The one thing I made for breakfast they all could agree on was French Toast. Yes, I know...did a baked recipe a few weeks ago, but this one is standard pan cooking. In fact, it was so popular, the Toddler who doesn't like breakfast kept asking for it. And the older girls wanted a batch left in the freezer for quick morning eats.

1 loaf french bread (I use wheat)
2-4 eggs (depends on # of pices you're making)
1/2 cup fat free half and half
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoon brown sugar + extra

Combine eggs, half & half, vanilla & br. sugar. Cut the bread into 1 to 1 1/4 inch slices. Dip into beaten egg mixture. Place onto lightly oiled (spray works well) pan or griddle. While the bottom is browning, sprinkle brown sugar on top. When ready to flip, let brown sugar side cook until the sugar carmalizes. Serve to hungry kids with maple syrup or fruit topping.

In fact, the middle and younger girls were raiding the bag and eating it plain as an afternoon snack. Probably explains why I had to make a new batch to get them through this week.
