I made this breakfast for my sister, Jenny, on her birthday week way back at the beginning of June. It instantly brought back memories of growing up and our dad, Scott. Whenever our mom was out of town when we were little (which wasn’t that often), our dad would make us French toast for breakfast. We would shop for Barbies and even watch “American Gladiators” at International Market while we ate Thai food for dinner. These were very special treats. I am deeply grateful for these vivid memories that fill me with warmth like this yummy breakfast!
1/4 cup milk
Splash vanilla extract
1 tsp cinnamon sugar
8-10 pieces of white bread
Butter for cooking
Powdered sugar and/or syrup to finish
In a Pyrex pan, mix the eggs, milk, vanilla, and cin sug. Turn the stove on medium heat. Put a pad of butter in a frying pan and let the pan warm up. Soak a piece of bread on the mixture. Pick up the bread, gently drip, and place in the frying pan. Cook the bread for about two minutes on each side or until light to medium brown. I put the toast on a plate in the microwave (not turned on) to keep it warm. You could also put them on a cookie sheet in a warm oven. You will want to add a pad of butter periodically as you cook. Finish Scottie’s French toast with a dusting of powdered sugar, a drizzle of syrup, or both!!!
