Easy Sunday Morning French Toast & Oven Cooked Bacon...
Updated: Oct 19, 2019
The Story –
I’ve always loved a good French toast breakfast when going out. I’ve even tried several different recipes at home because let’s face it, French toast isn’t all that complicated to make!
But you know how that goes… if you don’t follow the recipe exactly you end up with too much of this or too much of that and the taste is a little off; I can’t say anyone in my house but me would catch the subtle differences when I make it from scratch but it’s still something that bothers me but I’m not really a perfectionist either.
So I came up with an idea a few months ago and I’m not going to say that it’s an original one but I just can’t seem to remember hearing it from anyone so I’ll just claim it as my idea until someone calls me out on it.
This simple recipe calls for one main ingredient that will cut the prep time down to nothing and you’ll end up with a pretty good and tasty breakfast. Check it out, try it and let me know your thoughts. Oh, and by the way, I’m including my easy no mess method for making bacon too. Here you go:
What you will need:
4 to 6 slices of Pepperidge Farm Thick Cut French Toast Bread
½ TBS Cinnamon
1 tsp Vanilla
1 Cup Milk (2%, whole milk or buttermilk will work)
Whisk the cinnamon, vanilla, egg and milk until blended
Heat a pan or griddle with butter
Coat the French toast bread on both sides and place on hot griddle and repeat for the other slices
Once all slices are on the griddle lower flame to medium low
Check for doneness and then flip (it’s really your choice how browned you’d like it)
Once cooked, slice into triangles and top it with butter, powdered sugar and don’t forget to warm up your syrup.
I serve mine with a side of scrambled eggs with cheese and bacon.
Oven Cooked Bacon
You will need:
Large baking sheet WITH edges to keep the bacon grease in place
Heat oven to 425 degrees
Line a sheet with aluminum foil (this is critical for easy clean up)
Lay bacon on the baking sheet with edges
Place in the oven (the oven does not have to be at temperature)
Set timer for ten minutes
Once timer goes off, remove bacon and turn
Place back in the oven and set for another three to four minutes and check to be sure it’s not over cooking.
Once the timer goes off or once removed, place bacon on paper towels then blot grease and serve
Clean up is simple… once the baking sheets have cooled simply gather up the foil and discard. No scrubbing or scraping.
Thanks for reading and let me know your thoughts and any improvements on the recipe and bacon instructions.
