French Toast

It is a beautiful spring day in Alabama.

What a better way to start a Sunday morning than with a cup of coffee and some french toast? Well, some fresh strawberries and a dollop of whipped cream will definitely put a smile on your face.

French Toast
sourdough bread
1/2 cup milk
4 eggs
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp vanilla

Whip the eggs and milk, add spices. Pour into a 9x13 baking dish. Slice the bread into 1 inch slices and place in the egg mixture. After several minutes, carefully turn the bread. Allow to soak until most of the moisture is gone. Heat a griddle or skillet with a little cooking spray. Cook toast until golden brown, turning once.
Top with butter & syrup, fresh berries & whipped cream, or that yummy peanut butter that I picked up in Amish country.

While you are at it, make a few extra pieces for a quick breakfast later in the week. Monday through Friday are grab it and go days. Sunday should be about enjoying the morning, a news paper, and a good cup of coffee. Of course with a breakfast like this an hour in the gym is not a bad idea!
Y'all enjoy!

Hi, Sandi...thanks for stopping by for a visit! I see you are all about food...and we are all about eating, so I'll be back to see what other yummy recipes you post. I saw your aspargus recipe too & yep, Publix has had it on sale for weeks, so we've been eating it a lot. Have to get it while the price is right. So, you like Petals from the Past too..that was my first visit, but certainly not my last. Glad to meet you. Where are you in AL?

Please stop by anytime!

Love the flowers, they remind me of my mom's home in Florida. The french toast looks devine.
