Quick French Toast
Welcome to Culinary Wednesday. The goal is to share with you, every Wednesday, quick and easy recipes that I have tried, would like to try, as well as my experiments in the kitchen.
Today I am going to share oven baked french toast. First of all...the background behind this kitchen experiment...what made me introduce it to my family. It's really simple really 1) My children have a slight aversion to eating eggs, whether scrambled, fried, boiled -- whatever. 2) One of them is really picky 3) They (my children) love carbs, bread. 4) It's quick. I make them this for lunch.
Confession: One of my children...the picky one...doesn't like drinking milk either. What does french toast consist of? That's right, milk and eggs, so you see I get the picky eater to consume milk and eggs without any protest. One more thing I got this idea off Pinterest.
Prep time 5mins Cooking time: 11mins
Serving: 3 (2 children and 1 adult)
8 Slices of bread (we use Whole Wheat as organic as we can get it)
Brown sugar (about 1/2 cup)
1 Stick of butter or 2 Tbsp coconut oil (the coconut oil adds flavor)
1 Tbsp Ground cinnamon
Salt (about 1/2 tsp)
1 cup milk (I use whole milk. To stretch the milk I use 1/2 cup milk and 1/2 cup water)
Cookie sheet, whisk, measuring spoons, measuring cups, small sauce pan, butter knife and forks.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Line cookie sheet with foil and spray with cooking spray or spray cookie sheet without lining with foil.
Melt butter or coconut oil in the sauce pan on low heat. Slowly add milk while whisking. Cool and add eggs, beat or whisk. Add the remaining ingredients and whisk till smooth, pour over bread slices, ensuring that they are soaking in the mixture. Place in a 350F degree oven for 10mins, then broil for 1min or until bubbly. Cool, cut the bread slices vertically then horizontally to form squares and serve. There is no need for syrup. We eat straight from the cookie sheet, it's fun and saves dishes. Enjoy!
Notes: I adapted this recipe from a Cinnamon Toast recipe found on Pinterest. Sometimes it's crunchy and sometimes it's moist. It's quite filling. We have water or tea to "wash it down".
