|There is nothing like waking up on a Saturday morning! The weekdays here are just so busy that it seems like before you know it, the afternoon is here and the time has just flown by. This morning we woke up a little later and enjoyed our morning cup o' joe while watching our favorite home improvement shows. That is, by far, my favorite part of any day! This morning the kids were asking for something extra for breakfast. I suggested some French toast and bacon. They were sold! I had some left over beer bread in the fridge and we were in business! I love the smell in the house when you make a full blown breakfast! Especially when it involves cinnamon and nutmeg! Needless to say, it was a nice beginning to the last weekend before school starts!
Beer Bread French Toast
8 slices beer bread (1/2 to 3/4 inch thick)
2 eggs (or 1/2 cup egg substitute)
1/2 cup Lactaid Milk
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla extract
freshly grated nutmeg
Preheat griddle. Whisk eggs and milk together. Add vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg. Dip sliced beer bread in egg mixture. Turn a few times to make sure that it soaks up a good bit of the custard. Spray the griddle with cooking spray and then place the bread on the griddle. Cook to desired crispness. Serve with powdered sugar or syrup or both (as the kids seem to like it)!
Have a great weekend!
