I love traditions.
I love telling my kids, "this is what we do..." because that's what traditions are; they are the things you, as a family, do. They are part of who you are and part of what makes your family special.
In our home we do a lot of celebrating and a lot of feasting!
We celebrate, a lot. Whenever we have a good excuse, we celebrate and feast!
First day of school, last day of school, special awards, birthdays, holidays...you get the idea.
If we are doing a morning feast, such as birthday mornings or Christmas Morning I make my "Famous French Toast!" or so lovingly described by my children!
What makes them famous? Butter, Sugar and more sugar! They are yummy, totally not healthy and may make the kids a little crazy, but that's what beautiful celebrations are all about!
2 Eggs, 1 stick of butter, bread, milk, cinnamon, vanilla, brown sugar.
Melt the stick of butter.
In a bowl add 2 eggs, 1 cup of milk, 1 tsp of vanilla and 1-2 tsp cinnamon.
We like cinnamon so we add a little more.
Mmmm...cinnamon and vanilla!
1 to 2 cups of brown Sugar.
Stop eating the sugar!
Mix the sugar and the melted butter.
Pour it and spread evenly into a baking pan.
Put one layer of bread down and half of your liquid ingredients on;
then put a second layer and do the same.
Keep your helpers happy and give them a piece of toast.
Put it in the oven at 350 for 25 minutes.
Take it out and sprinkle some powdered sugar over it.
Enjoy Your Feast!
It's delicious! You have yummy French toast with a layer of slightly caramelized sugar at the bottom.
Tips: You can use any kind of bread, but a slightly thicker bread works well, like texas toast, french bread, etc. I don't like french toast to be eggy, so I only use two eggs and more milk, but you can experiment with this. We also don't like the bread to be soggy, so I pour the contents on evenly though you could dip each piece of bread.
Perfect for a weekend Celebration!
