Quick and Easy French Toast

I came up with this idea one morning after trying to make french toast with really spongy sandwich bread. It was a soggy mess. James loves carbs for breakfast: pancakes, waffles, toast with jam, oatmeal, etc and it's difficult to get him to eat egg unless it is disguised smothered in ketchup, so this is an easy way to get half of an incredible egg into him!

Makes 3 pieces of french toast

1 egg
2 tablespoons milk
pinch sea salt
1/2 teaspoon butter for each slice
3 pieces of bread

Mix the egg, milk and salt until fluffy. Heat your skillet over medium heat and add butter. Holding a slice of bread in your hand, spoon the egg mixture onto it and cover surface well.

Place onto skillet and spoon egg mixture on top side as well. Flip when golden brown and cook for another minute or two.

Sprinkle with cane sugar and cinnamon and top with maple syrup to make it perfect. These reheat well in the skillet, and soon I plan to make a weeks worth so I can freeze them and pull them out, heat them in the toaster and serve. My little guy wakes up ravenous, so the faster I can have breakfast on the table, the better!

David and I enjoyed two slices each... so good! Like cinnamon toast crunch, only better for you!

James approves!
