french toast

Posted on October 7, 2011


Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so please promise me you’ll try to eat breakfast everyday… K, thanks.

While cereal & milk is a perfectly good breakfast (but pretty boring), I don’t always want that. Even though mornings can be quite busy, I want to enjoy my “most important meal of the day.” Enter Quick French Toast

This Quick French Toast recipe couldn’t be much easier, and it’s pretty healthy, too. Whole wheat bread and an egg are both great breakfast items. Eggs are an inexpensive source of protein, and whole wheat bread gives your body necessary fiber. Both provide your body with healthy vitamins and minerals.

To make this easy, I like to prepare it the night before and leave it in the refrigerator, or I’ll make it and let the bread soak up the vanilla, cinnamon, egg-y goodness while I am on a walk. Either way, once the preparation is done, it will take you less than 10 minutes to make this breakfast.

Serve your Quick French Toast with a glass of milk or some fruit for extra nutrients. Enjoy!

Quick French Toast

Serves 1 (recipe can easily be doubled or quadrupled)

1 egg or ¼ cup egg substitute

¼ tsp cinnamon

⅛ tsp vanilla

1 slice whole wheat bread

optional toppings: 1 tsp maple syrup, ¼ tsp powdered sugar, ½ tsp butter

Mix egg, cinnamon, and vanilla together. Put bread in mixture. Allow it to soak for at least 30 minutes. Make sure to turn it a couple of times.

Heat a small skillet over medium-low heat. Spray with canola oil. Put bread in pan, and cook for 4 minutes. Flip and cook for another 3-4 minutes. Serve with optional toppings, if desired.

Happy Friday!
