Honey Wheat French Toast

Ahhhh...the perfect start to a Saturday morning includes sleeping in, waking up to sunshine, a run and an awesome breakfast. Today is going to be another 80 degree sunny day and we are getting ready to head out for our fun day soon.

For breakfast I decided to use our Gillwood's Honey Wheat Bread to make up some delicious French Toast.


1 egg
1/4 c liquid egg whties (about 2 egg whites)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon pure maple syrup (adds sweeteness)
dash of salt (optional)
2 slices of your favorite bread

Dunk your bread in the above mixture and brown in a nonstick pan or a pan sprayed with nonstick cookie spray over medium heat. Top with your favorite toppings - whipped butter, maple syrup, fruit, nuts, etc.

I made two slices for each of us with our gigantic bread. Served up with some Decaf Cinnamon Vanilla Nut decaf coffee ~ Yum!


I normally would top my french toast with some fruit, but, the only thing we have left right now is cuties. Somehow that didn't seem to fit in the mix. So I used about 2 teaspoons of Whipped Butter and a drizzle of Pure Maple Syrup (about 1-2 tsps) on each slice.

Have a great Saturday all! Enjoy the sunshine if you have it but more importantly make sure you have some fun today! See you all when we return back from our journey.
