Saturday French Toast
This is starting to become my own personal Saturday morning ritual. My sort of, ‘congratulations for making it through the week self…here is your prize.’ I seriously get excited come Friday night in anticipation of my little Saturday morning treat. You get the idea, I really like my French Toast, and warm, dripping berries on top……watch out! So, make some coffee, get your caffeine buzz on, stay in your pj’s a little longer, and treat yourself.
Prep Time : 5 min/Cook time: 10 min / makes 4 pieces
1/3 cup whole milk
cinnamon (to your preference)
1/2 stick butter
agave nectar (or honey)
4 slices thickly sliced bread
(we used Rudi’s Organic Whole 14 Grain bread)
Start by combining your eggs, milk, and cinnamon into bowl. Whisk eggs until scrambled and ingredients are evenly distributed. Then pour the mixture into a plate for better dipping. I also go ahead and slice my butter into 8 1/2 Tbs. sliced, so that it is ready to throw into the pan. Go ahead and place butter slices into the saucepan for as many pieces that you can cook at once. Get your pan hot. Dip your bread and cover both sides by dipping into your egg mixture. Place bread into pan. Cook on medium heat for 3 minutes, or until golden brown. Throw some more butter in your pan, flip your toast and do the same for the other side. And, wah-la.
Prep Time : 1 min/Cook time: 10 min
4 oz. blackberries
4 oz. raspberries
4 oz. blueberries
Simply wash your berries and toss them all into a small sauce pan. I also add about 1/4 cup water. Cover and cook on medium heat for 10 min. I love the tartness of the berries, but if you need a little sweetness, add some agave nectar or honey.
Did you know that berries are low in calories and high in fiber and minerals that your body needs to function properly, and they are full of antioxidants! You know, those serious disease fighters! One cup of strawberries contains almost as much vitamin C as a cup of OJ. Blueberries contain antioxidants which aid in reducing the risk of diseases such as inflammation and cancer. A diet with blueberries, also aids in reducing symptoms of high blood sugar, as well as factors associated with memory loss and depression.
