Imagine: Eggs smothered in cheese and hot sauce; hash browns dipped in ketchup; toast dripping butter, and sausage steaming in the pan.
Last night my roommate and I decided to make breakfast for dinner; well, not just breakfast, a breakfast feast. Somehow we convinced ourselves that we could each eat seven pieces of sausage along with toast, eggs, and hash browns. We stuffed ourselves to the brim and only managed to eat about three pieces of sausage and half of the hash browns. The breakfast feast defeated us. Nevertheless, it was super delicious.
The only thing that would have made the feast better would have been French toast. I literally dreamt about French toast last night. Cinnamon and nutmeg coated toast, dripping with syrup and topped with fresh fruit. Mmmm…
Obviously, there was only one thing to do when I woke up this morning—make a sandwich. Just kidding, I made French toast, and ate it faster than it took to make it, and it was fantastic.
SINGLE SERVING FRENCH TOAST
½ cup vanilla almond milk
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 large egg
2 slices of whole wheat bread
This is a really simple recipe. All you do is put the almond milk, pumpkin pie spice, and the egg in a bowl and whisk it. Then, soak the bread in the egg mixture and place on a heated pan until browned on each side.
I ended up with a little bit of extra egg mixture left so I just poured it over the toast in the pan. The French toast ended up really eggy because of it, which I like. However, you can skip that step if you prefer a less eggy French toast. Also, if you don’t have almond milk, regular milk works just as well. Just add in a little bit of vanilla extract and sugar.
I cut up a nectarine and layered it between the pieces of toast and then drizzled a little syrup on top. It was a quick and delicious breakfast that anyone can make.
