Good Morning! Happy Monday! I have been meaning to share this recipe with you and I truly forgot. On Christmas, we always make a big breakfast, it has been a tradition sense I was a little girl. This year instead of biscuits, eggs and bacon, we decided to make french toast, eggs, and bacon. French toast is so good, especially when you use a thick sliced bread cinnamon swirl bread. French toasts reminds me of my Grandma. She always made the best French toast. French toasts is super easy and doesn’t take very long at all. I find making French toast is much easier than pancakes. Be sure to try this recipe, its so yummy!
1 thick slice loaf of cinnamon swirl bread (or bread of your choice)
4 Large Eggs
2 teaspoons of cinnamon
1/2 cup of Heavy Whipping Cream
Butter or EVOO for coating griddle/skillet
Pure Maple Syrup
On a cutting board slice your loaf of bread into thick 1″ slices (my bread was already pre-cut). In a large glass bowl, crack 4 large eggs, pour 1/2 cup of heavy whipping cream, and 2 tablespoons of cinnamon. Whisk all the ingredients together. Drizzle EVOO into a large griddle or skillet pan and place on the stove on high heat. The key is to get your pan very hot and then turn down the heat to medium heat once ready to grill. With the ingredients all whisked together begin dredging the thick slices of cinnamon swirl bread. Place the bread slices, one at a time, into the bowl, letting slices soak up egg mixture for a few seconds, then carefully turn to coat the other side. Dredge only as many slices as you will be cooking at one time (for me I cooked 4 at a time). Transfer bread slices to griddle or skillet, heating slowly until bottom is golden brown, takes about 1 to 2 minutes on each side. Turn and brown the other side. Serve French toast hot with butter and warm pure maple syrup.
