What's up everyone!!! It's my first Taste of Tuesday this year with Ashley & Jessica. Last night I decided to cook breakfast for dinner! How fun is that!? Well, you might not think so, but I had the best time making it! I have had this delicious sourdough baguette sitting in the freezer and I've been dying to do something fabulous with it...like healthy baked french toast! The ingredients are very simple, it took 5 minutes to put together and only 20 minutes to cook. Now you can't beat that!!
- 4 slices of crusty bread...12 slices if the bread is baguette style. (I like sourdough bread because I'm trying to remove heavy wheat/gluten from my diet, but any type will work).
- 4 eggs
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup almond milk (or your milk of choice)
- 1/2 tablespoon cinnamon
- 1 ripe banana
- Toppings: Maple syrup
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
- Chop bread into 2 inch chunks. Place in small greased casserole dish.
- In a bowl, combine eggs, milk, cinnamon, and vanilla.
- Pour egg mix over bread and slice in a banana.
- Stir and let stand for a minute. Stir again, thoroughly coating all the bread with the egg mix. Pat down with spoon.
- Bake at 375 for 20 minutes. Remove, let stand for one minute, and slice (makes two servings).
- Top with nuts and maple syrup.
- (Serves 2)
I cooked up some bacon (my personal favorite is Applegate Farms Natural Sunday Bacon) and made mimosa slushies. They are so easy to make...try not to hurt yourself! 1) Freeze champagne in ice cube trays. 2) Once the champagne ice cubes are frozen place them in a cup. 3) Add the orange juice and stir to mash up the cubes. Voila...Mimosa slushies!
*Word to the wise...the champagne ice cubes melt and get crumbly very quickly (see color change from pic 1 to 2). Therefore wait to take the ice cubes out of the freezer until you are 100% ready to make your drink.
