Saturday mornings are special for us. I make a big breakfast, we watch T.V. and hang out together. I don't like to go anywhere. I LOVE making a big breakfast. This used to be every day of our lives before my oldest son started school. Not going to lie, I miss those days.
So, for the past week my oldest son keeps asking for French Toast. I laugh, because it has been forever since I have made us French Toast. I am surprised he can even remember those days. But he does have a memory that amazes me, so, really, I shouldn't be surprised.
So, this is what I made this morning and it was so delicious, I had to share.
Saturday Morning Sourdough French Toast
2 farm fresh (not grocery store) eggs, beaten
1/2 cup milk (Whole, Organic or RAW)
1 tsp homemade vanilla (click here on how to make it yourself....super easy)
Pinch of Redmond's sea salt
3/4 tsp of organic cinnamon (more or less to taste)
Bunch of KerryGold or RAW butter, melted in your cast iron skillet
4-6 slices of sourdough (ours was a little old and dried out and was perfect for this)
Beat eggs, milk, vanilla, salt and cinnamon until well blended (I just use a fork or whisk). Heat your cast iron skillet and butter that skillet up with real butter (if your butter is white, it is not real. sorry, even if it's organic).
Dip 1 slice of bread into egg mixture, flip, coating both sides of bread, hold the soaked bread over your egg mixture bowl for a few seconds letting the excess egg mixture drip and then carefully place in your hot skillet with all that amazing butter and cook until golden brown, flip, repeat. (Think butter is bad for you? PLEASE read this and this and this.)
And since organic strawberries are finally making a comeback here, I served our French Toast with a bunch of sliced organic strawberries, maple syrup and a couple dashes of powdered sugar (hey, it's Saturday morning. :-) ) And of course a BIG glass of RAW milk from Pasture's Delights.
