I don't write many recipes, mostly because I'm a bit lazy. I like simple things. Things with very few ingredients and very little prep. If you're like me, maybe you'll like these, too.
I probably already did a post on French toast, but because this is a bit different, instead of adding to the original, I decided to make this its own post.
Lately most mornings I have been having toast for breakfast. With peanut butter and bananas. And it’s Super Tasty! So this is a peanut butter and banana stuffed French toast.
This amount in this recipe depend on how many you want to make.
Bread (I used what I had on hand, but French bread is ideal, or that nice thick D’italiano bread)
Chocolate hazelnut spread
In a bowl, put your egg, a tsp of sugar, milk, a couple shakes of cinnamon, salt and pepper and a splash of vanilla. (I made one sandwich and with one egg, there was still some left over) Combine these ingredients.
Spread the peanut butter on your bread. (You can spread chocolate hazelnut spread on one slice and peanut butter on the other) Once the bread is spread to your liking, heat up your nonstick frying pan. Slice your banana. Fill one slice of bread with your banana slices and then drizzle with honey. Put your two slices together to make a sandwich. Dip your sandwich in the egg mixture, coating both sides, and put it in the frying pan. A couple minutes in either side.
When it’s done, transfer to plate.
In the same frying pan, mix together honey and water, and add the remaining slices of banana. Don’t overcook the banana.
Before all the liquid cooks away, pour this over your French toast. If you wish, you can then sprinkle cinnamon or powered sugar over the top.
And voila! You’re done! So yummy!
Sorry it takes me so long in between recipe posts. Obviously, I’m not much of a cook! But that’s why I like to post super quick and easy things. I’ve been making french toast for years, and I rarely switch it up. Except for around Christmas time. So I’ll start with my basic recipe of Cinammon Sugar French Toast. Yum!
As with most of my recipes, I don’t measure. So we’ll go through the basics.
Bread. Usually 3 slices for one serving. Today I used thin bread, but thick slices are much nicer to use.
2 eggs (or one really big one?)
Milk, sugar, cinnamon, vanilla, salt
Warm up a non stick frying pan. I turn the burner on to about 6-7. Too hot and you’ll just burn the outside and the inside will be soggy. I’m a bowl big enough for a piece of bread, crack you eggs. Add milk until it looks like enough. If you only have 2 slices of bread, use less milk. Stir. Add a good spoonful of sugar, a sprinkle of cinnamon, a few shakes of salt and a splash of vanilla. Stir.
Ive never done the overnight soak for French Toast. I’m never that prepare for my meals. So just take your bread and make sure it’s coated in the mix. Flip it over. And then put it in the frying pan.
Fry until lightly browned, then flip it over. Same. Transfer to plate.
When you put the next batch in, turn the burner down slightly. You won’t need to cook this one as long. As you can see here.
And done. Sometimes I’ll top it with sliced bananas. Sometimes just maple syrup. Do what you like!
Now this morning, I didn’t use this recipe. It’s just after Christmas and I still have a little bit of eggnog left. It’s super easy. Instead of using milk, sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla, just mix the eggs with some eggnog and a little bit of nutmeg! See? Easy!
Sorry I don't post many recipes. I'm lazy. Which is why I'm doing an omelette.
This is morning I got up and decided to blow out a couple eggs. So what do you do with the eggs after? Make an omelette of course. I scrambled them up a bit, added some milk, salt, pepper and some homemade salsa that a friend gave me. Yum!
Omelettes are great because you can put in them whatever you want. Salsa, ham, cheese, spinach, the possibilities are endless! Have some fun with it, mix it up a bit.
You heard me right. And I can't wait to eat it tonight. And it's simple. Took about an hour.
salt and pepper
Notice I didn't use measurements? Use whatever you like! I'm only feeding 2 people so I used 5 potatoes, 5 eggs, whatever leaves I could get off the dill in the garden and a few good globs of Miracle Whip. I didn't have sour cream this time around, but it does make the dill pop a bit more.
I can't fry bacon. I burn it. So I threw it in the oven!
This is my all-time favourite wrap!
Boil the eggs and potatoes.
I read a tip about peeling fresh boiled eggs. Just as they start to boil, turn the burner off and add salt, baking soda, and the lid. Let it sit.
Worked pretty well except for that first one!
When everything is cool, cut the eggs up and put the yolks in a large bowl.
Mash them up and mix with everything but the eggs, potatoes and bacon. After it is mixed, then you can add in the rest of your ingredients. Mix well. Store in the fridge until you're ready to eat!
Super easy. Seriously. If I can do it, anyone can. Start with a muffin tin. Spray it with Pam (or whatever). Take a piece of bacon and wrap it around the inside of it, covering as much of it as possible. Crack an egg into it. Add a little salt, pepper, and shredded cheese (or whatever the hell else you want!) I put it in the oven at 450 for about 20 minutes. And bam! Done. Enjoy!
