This new year has started off with a different twist for me. A vanilla latte the morning of January 1st. I was warming up for my intended every-day-blogging routine for 2016. The new routine took the warming up with coffee and a yummy comfort meal before the actual blogging began.
dinner breakfast omelet was wonderful, and I finally managed to get the post published around midnight I think. What made the meal delightful, though, was adding French toast as a side. Omelets and French toast fit very nicely in my comfort food list.
French toast sprinkled with powdered sugar has shown up on menus for years, but I’ve never added pecans until now. It tastes amazing! I’ve added my recipe below so that you can try it out.
Vanilla Pecan French Toast
- Vanilla, 1 tsp.
- Powdered Sugar
- Pecan pieces
- Butter, 2 tsp.
- Eggs, 2
- Potato bread, 2 slices
- Beat eggs.
- Stir in cinnamon, vanilla, and milk.
- Dip both sides of potato bread into egg mixture.
- Put potato bread into melted butter in pan.
- Turn the bread over to the other side after a minute or two.
- When both sides look golden, put the French toast onto a plate.
- Sprinkle powdered sugar on top.
- Sprinkle several pecan pieces on top next.
- Drizzle your favorite syrup over the French toast and enjoy.
If you like buttery toast but not so sweet with powdered sugar, try frying it. One time, many years ago, I spent the night with my two friends that were sisters. We got the crazy idea of frying toast. First, we put the butter into the pan then fried each side of each piece of bread. We went through a whole loaf. Around 2:00 or 3:00 am, their mom woke up and saw that we were still up. She got to laughing at that stack of toast on a plate and thought we would never finish all of it. We ate every piece of it, but we did add apple jelly to it.
I do love toast – with just butter, butter and jelly, garlic, the loaded kind with powdered sugar and pecans, and even dry toast. Though bread is not something I always allow myself the pleasure of, I eat eggs often. I think I could eat them almost every day for any meal and not become tired of them. Boiled, fried, scrambled, omelet – they’re all good. Eggs taste good and contain A, B, C, and D vitamins plus more nutrients. It’s hard to beat the amount of nutrition you get by eating one egg.
