Two quick and easy holiday breakfast ideas…

Have you ever had the Apple Strudel bread from Costco?

It’s delicious, but made into French Toast it’s even better!

I just whisk together 4 eggs, about a half cup milk, about a tablespoon of sugar, a teaspoon vanilla and some cinnamon and nutmeg to taste.  Then I dip both sides of bread in egg mixture and grill on a lightly greased skillet like normal french toast. 

When done instead of regular breakfast syrup, try a little caramel syrup.  Yummm!



Some folks call it Oven Pancake, some Dutch Babies, and some German Pancake.

Whatever it’s called, it’s easy to make, delicious, and can be topped in numerous ways.

Place a couple of tablespoons of butter in a heavy skillet.

Place skillet in oven set to 425 while it preheats.

In the meanwhile, blend together 4 eggs, 3/4 cup milk, 3/4 cup flour, and a dash or two of salt.

Pour batter into the hot skillet and bake for about 15 minutes.

Sprinkle with powdered sugar and cut into wedges to serve.

Delicious with syrup, jam, jelly or warm fruit compote.







Happy Cooking!
