My Hubby’s breakfast of choice? Thankfully nothing too fancy (I am no guru in the kitchen) French toast with strawberries and of course, bacon.  I took it to the next level by attempting turn the french toast into hearts with a heart-shaped cookie-cutter.

MY SIMPLE FRENCH TOAST

Ingredients:

-1/4 tsp nutmeg & 1/4 tsp of cinnamon

-2 eggs

-2/3 cup milk

-4 slices of bread

-1 tsp vanilla extract (optional)

Directions:

Whisk the eggs, nutmeg, cinnamon, milk and vanilla extract in a large bow

Dunk the slices of bread into the bowl, allowing the bread to soak up the mixture

Fry wet slices in a frying pan until golden brown

Add desired toppings and enjoy!
