Country French Toast
I’m all about simplicity in the mornings. I’m not a morning person to begin with, and most days it’s all I can do to drag myself out of bed to make coffee. So add cooking an elaborate breakfast to that short, but often excruciating, to-do list? No, thanks. I won’t even begin to pretend that that’s going to happen. I’ll reserve casseroles and the like for brinner or a potluck. Or maybe a special holiday. Maybe.
Anyway. There are a couple things that I am willing to whip up on your average morning. Cereal, Pop Tarts, toast. If I’m feeling super fancy I’ll make eggs and bacon, or pancakes, and this quick and easy Country French Toast recipe makes the list, too.
This classic Country French Toast is a family favorite, and I love it because it’s so easy to make and so yummy to eat. Adding a pinch of sugar to scrambled eggs (or the beaten eggs in this recipe) is a family tradition that keeps the eggs a little bit more fluffy.
Top this Country French Toast recipe with your favorite toppings. Butter and maple syrup, if you’re a traditionalist, or have some fun with peanut butter, Nutella, whipped cream, and berries.
