today the mountain man is teaching his first official yoga class, so i figured he could use his favorite breakfast to start his day off right. he’s a glutton for french toast, but doesn’t like how soggy it gets with large slices of bread. so we always make french toast bites – just the right size to keep each piece perfectly cooked and delicious.
you can use any kind of bread for this – gluten free toast works great without having to let it sit a day to harden. we top ours with strawberries, blackberries, and maple syrup, but any side will do. add a little powdered sugar to really make it something special. enjoy!
6 slices bread
2/3 cup milk
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
remove the crust, and cut the slices of bread into managable bites, but not too small as they’ll fall apart. in a large, shallow bowl, beat together the eggs, milk, spices, and vanilla.
heat a little oiled pan over medium-high heat. dunk each piece of bread in egg mixture, soaking both sides. place in a single layer on the pan, flipping once slightly crisped and golden brown. serve hot with desired sides and a sprinkle of powdered sugar on top.
