Whole Wheat French Toast

Feb 1, 2012 by


Hello friends! Can you believe it’s already February? Wow, time certainly flies. I’m looking forward to creating more recipes and working on my photography. How am I doing so far? I’m so excited for what this year has in store! My love for photography is never-ending! And apparently, its keeping a lot of folks quite hungry too :-)

I picked up a loaf of whole-wheat homestyle bread at the supermarket and I couldn’t wait to dig into it. The thing is, when you buy a loaf of bread like this, you have to eat it all within a day or so of cutting it otherwise it will get hard. After that, the only thing it will be good for is breadcrumbs. And that’s not a bad thing ~ I’d just prefer to eat it :-). I thought it would be a good idea to make French Toast using lovely thick slices of fresh bread. Its a family favourite and its a change from the usual suspects around breakfast time. I used French Bread before to make French Toast. Do you remember that post? Here it is: Stuffed French Toast. That was some tasty toast! But time is always a factor in getting breakfast ready. So the traditional way was good for me this time around. The kids loved it and so did I!
