With bonus days off from school this week, you can take advantage of the extra time and have the kids pitch in on breakfast! French toast is an old favorite, and super easy for kids to master. Depending on ages, you can have them crack eggs, beat them, or even work at the stove to flip the toast if they’re a little older and have adult supervision. This recipe will easily scale up to make enough for the entire family. Enjoy your week!
Cinnamon-Sprinkled French Toast
- 2 large eggs
- 2 tablespoons milk
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 2 slices whole-wheat bread
- 1 teaspoon butter
- maple syrup
In flat-bottomed bowl, crack eggs. Thoroughly whisk in milk and cinnamon.
Dip bread slices, one at a time, into egg mixture, wetting both sides. Re-dip, if necessary, until all egg mixture is absorbed into bread.
Meanwhile, heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat.
Add butter. Place dipped bread slices in skillet. Cook 2 1/2-3 minutes per side, or until both sides are golden brown.
Drizzle with syrup. Serve when warm.
