I decided to make him some traditional French Toast. The fun thing about French Toast is that you can add some sugar to it (along with the pancake syrup) and it is like a breakfast dessert! Who doesn’t love eating sweets in the morning?!
I had never made French Toast before. It’s the simplest breakfast ever (well, not as simple as my bowl of cereal, but close!).
I like that you can make a lot of it at the same time. Griddles are so handy. This would be a good breakfast item to serve when you have a lot of guests, because you can make as much as your griddle will hold!
You can also switch up the type of bread that you use. I just used whole wheat sandwich bread that we had.
A fresh fruit topping (
and whipped cream)would be really yummy with it, too!
