Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day.
Correction: Breakfast used to be my favorite meal of the day.
Stop and think about what you order at your favorite brunch spot. Eggs Benedict? A crispy waffle? What about a mushroom omelet? In my experience, unless the restaurant is specifically vegan, you’re eating oatmeal. And if you order toast, make sure they leave off the butter. Sigh…
Now I like oatmeal. Obviously I like oatmeal. But I eat oatmeal Every. Single. Day. If you read my WIAW’s, you can vouch for me.
And I’m starting to fall into a breakfast rut. During the summer, I mix it up with yogurt parfaits or smoothies, but I already run cold (if your name is Matty B you can vouch for me) so I need a hot breakfast, especially on December 20.
Could French Toast be the catalyst for change?
I’ve seen recipes that call for silken tofu, but I’d just purchased this egg replacer and was curious to try it out.
This was one of those “guess and dump” recipes. Everything went into the blender because nobody wants fake eggs chunks. Fake egg chunks could quickly turn breakfast into my least favorite meal of the day…
Since its December 20 I feel vindicated in using cinnamon bread versus my usual whole wheat. Why do I need an excuse to use yummy bread? It’s how my brain works.
With the vanilla and the pumpkin spice, (and my cinnamon bread:), this French toast is flavorful enough that it wouldn’t need any syrup- maybe just a smattering of powdered sugar.
I sure don’t know how to leave well enough alone…
Trader Joe’s cranberry apple butter and honey pretzel peanut butter.
Eaten with my kiddos while sitting by the fire?
Who needs oatmeal?
