Penelope and I are snowed in on this Friday and I'm completely unopposed to spending the early days of 2014 at home, looking glamorous in sweatpants and unbrushed hair. I thought a treat was in order, so I whipped up a little whole wheat French toast for us to enjoy.
Mix 2 eggs, 1/4 C milk, a splash of vanilla extract and a dash of cinnamon in a shallow bowl.
Dip bread into mixture on both sides (don't leave it soaking for too long...I did that for the first slice and it soaked up almost all of the egg mixture!). Cook about 2-3 minutes on each side in a buttered skillet over medium heat. Makes about 4 big slices of French toast.
I made just 3 slices...2 for me, and 1/2 a slice for Penelope. I think she can have the rest tomorrow! I even added the tiniest bit of real maple syrup to hers (and a dunkin' puddle to mine). We both loved it!
Have a great, warm and safe weekend everyone!
*Updated to note: Penelope ate her entire slice.
