French Toast to Family

My morning moose!
All this talk about dieting and fitness is making me hungry & tired!  In case you didn't know, I am currently on a mountain top somewhere in Wyoming.  It is cold and makes you want to cuddle up next to the fire and eat some comfort food.  I know for most of you it is the start of the weekend and I wanted to just pass on a recipe for you to try with your family this weekend.  I say embrace the winter, cuddle with the ones you love most, go back to an old favorite, and forget about calories for a second.  I often forget about simple things I love in my drive to try something new and different.  Remember how much you loved french toast and pancakes when you were a kid? For me, my dad would always make pancakes and I would always get to order french toast when we went out to eat.  When was the last time you took the time to make it?  Well, here is my favorite french toast recipe from the dear Emily of course because I get all my good material from her.  I hope you all have a fantastic weekend, make some memories for people in your life, and enjoy every single decadent bite!!!

Everybody wants some!

French Toast

3 Eggs
1 Cup Whipping Cream or Half & Half or Milk 
3 T Sugar
1 tsp Cinnamon
1/4 tsp Nutmeg
1/4 tsp Vanilla
8 Slices of Bread 

Warm up a frying pan, melt butter in it, dip each slice in the batter, place in pan, and cook until well toasted on each side.  I modify everything but this recipe is just perfect the way it is.  I say go for the whipping cream, that is how I make it and it is worth every bite.  Emily's mom suggests serving it with Lime & Sugar if you want something different but I love it with butter and syrup.  You can of course use a griddle if you have one.  I use Texas toast but sourdough, french bread, and King's Hawaiian are good choices as well.  If you want a restaurant tip, bacon is best cooked on a cookie sheet in the oven.  Put tinfoil or non-stick cooking spray on your cookie sheet to make clean up easier, layer with bacon (can be touching), and bake until cooked perfectly.  This usually about 20 minutes on 375 degree oven.  Enjoy!!!

Happy Winter! 


  1. My mouth waters when I look at french toast. I find the batter at most restaurants too sweet so I always need to bathe them in butter. The moose-whoa!!! That's one big one!

  2. I've been using this recipe since our ranch days...probably once a weekend. Use whole grain bread and serve it with some fruit and it's not that bad for you after all. This is a great simple recipe. Just sweet enough.

  3. Love this with french bread and lots of lime and sugar (sounds weird, but it really is amazing). I followed your advice and cuddled with the one I love and made memories this weekend! Happy Valentine's Day!

  4. Megan you are the expert on good breakfast with all of your cooking from the ranch! French toasts my favorite but I've never made it on my own. I'll have to give it a try!
