Good morning! Happy Sunday!
Getting to wake up on Sundays is one of my favorite things to do, because I always have time to make myself a delicious, not to-go or quick-and-easy breakfast. But the one big problem with that is, when I try to decide what I want to eat, everything sounds good. It’s awful! My brain just plays the loop of “I want eggs. No, oatmeal. No, pancakes.” over and over and over! I call it my breakfast crisis.
It’s no surprise it happens. Breakfast foods really are the most delicious kinds. Maybe I’ll just eat a different one each meal today.
Once I had made up my mind, I tried out a semi-new recipe to me. At some point, someone I was eating out with had ordered crispy french toast. I literally can’t remember who I was with and where exactly it was, but I remember that the french toast was coated in oatmeal and it sounded really interesting. I decided to try to recreate that recipe as best as I could today (and satisfy my craving for carbs, oatmeal, and eggs all in one!)
French Toast Batter
-Two eggs, whisked
-Splash of soy milk (but any milk will do, that’s just all I had)
-1tsp-ish of vanilla
-Lots of cinnamon
My set up. The bread was really dense so I let the pieces soak for a few minutes to absorb all the eggy goodness.
They turned out a little toastier than I wanted them to but, but I blame that on my ancient and finicky stove. It goes from blazing fire to matchstick-size flame with nothing really in between.
I topped mine with a little bit of brown sugar and peanut butter. They were so good! Not too sweet and really filling, and the oats were nice and crunchy on the outside. I didn’t have any maple syrup, but I think that would have tasted great on this too instead of the peanut butter. A successful experiment for sure!
Do you experience the breakfast crisis?
What’s your favorite breakfast food?
All the time, duh. And if I see something on a menu that involves an egg skillet with chorizo, I’m sold.
