Can You Join Me?

I'd love to have you over for brunch (or late supper?)!
We still have two slices of French Toast hot on the griddle!
 Have you ever made French Toast? It's super easy...and takes just a few ingredients. 
 Here's how I make mine.
(For every person, I use 2 eggs and 1/4 cup can get by with 1 egg if need be)
Beat eggs up in a bowl with a fork. Add milk. Add a sprinkling of sugar (optional),  1-teaspoon of vanilla flavoring, 1-teaspoon of ground cinnamon.
Pour mixture (part of it if you are making for a crowd) into a shallow bowl or plate with high sides. Place one slice of Texas Style Toast (thick slices) bread...or plain ole loaf bread if Texas Toast style is not available..into the mixture. Turn over to coat both sides...and place on a hot griddle (or skillet if you don't have a griddle.)
BUT, a griddle is saves me so much time!
 Mine is from Presto, and can be ordered on line from Walmart for less than $25. This is my second griddle...same exact model, because I love it so much! I just sit it up on top of my flat-top range, which substitutes for counter space in this tiny galley kitchen.
After French Toast is done on one side (about 3 minutes at 350 degree) flip it over to cook on the other side. Then place in your dish and top with whatever you like.
Aidan likes butter/margarine and syrup.
I prefer a little margarine and a dusting of powdered sugar...and whipped topping when available (thought we had some, but grand-daughter had already cleaned the fridge of that)...and when we have it, some fresh fruit on the side. Aidan made some wonderful fruit salad last night (she is learning to "cook") I took advantage of the left overs.
Add a little yogurt and some milk/juice...and you have a great breakfast, brunch, or even dinner occassionally!
French toast is great for feeding a uses far less eggs than trying to scramble some...and is so inexpensive for a large group.
