Basic French Toast Recipe

Basic French Toast Recipe

It’s been so long since I have eaten, or prepared French toast; I can’t remember it. I was looking over my blog posts and realized I didn’t have one on here-so here it is.

I have seen a lot fancier recipes for French toast than this one, but this Basic French Toast Recipe worked well for me. I had some breakfast sausage in the freezer I wanted to use up and thought I would make a breakfast supper out of it, so I served the sausage with French toast, topped with pure maple syrup and it was delicious.

If you looking for a simple French toast recipe, give this one a try; it’s really good. Enjoy

Ingredients

6 thick slices of bread (I used Texas Toast bread slices)

2 eggs (beaten)

2/3 cup milk

1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/4 ground nutmeg

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions

1. Thoroughly mix all the ingredients together.

2. Thoroughly coat the bread by dipping it into the egg mixture letting it absorb some of the liquid. (I use a pie dish for this-it works great)

3. Cook using a lightly oiled skillet, or griddle over medium heat until golden brown on both sides.

Eggs and Sausage Casserole Recipe

It has been awhile since I prepared a breakfast dinner for supper. I had some homemade breakfast sausage in the freezer and decided to use it up. For some reason I have never prepared an egg and sausage type casserole-if have had Egg and Sausage Casserole at get togethers, and thought it was pretty good. When I came across this recipe I thought I would give it a try. Outside of the seasoning that is incorporated into the breakfast sausage there is no additional seasoning added, which leaves a lot of room to adjust the seasoning to your taste. Some good additions could be mushrooms or sweet peppers and maybe some cayenne or red pepper flakes if you want to turn up the heat a little bit. I prepared this recipe as written and it was very good. Enjoy

Ingredients

1 pound sage flavored breakfast sausage

3 cups shredded potatoes (drained and press)

1/4 cup butter (melted)

6 large eggs
