In this house we are BIG fans of breakfast. On a lazy Saturday morning one of our favorite things to do is make a yummy meal together. My mom's delicious french toast recipe is a go-to, served with maple syrup, bacon and a fresh fruit salad. perfection.

Thick slices of sourdough, challah or crusty french bread
3 eggs
3/4 cup milk or cream
1/4 cup orange juice
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 tablespoon vanilla

Mix eggs, milk, orange juice, vanilla and cinnamon together. Set aside.
Over medium-low heat, melt 1 tablespoon butter. 
Dip both sides of bread slices into egg mixture and place in skillet. Cook, until golden brown on each side. Transfer to cookie sheet and bake in a 375F oven for 5 minutes. serve warm and enjoy!


You are the best, the most, the everything.
