Breakfast for dinner is like the greatest idea ever. No one ever moans and groans about that. The thought of gooey syrup or loaded up eggs makes everyone in our house smile. One day this week when my dinner plans fell through we went to plan B, French Toast. But we gave it a spin making it Vanilla Brown Sugar French Toast with the addition of Bailey’s coffee creamer.Vanilla Brown Sugar French Toast #kidsinthekitchen

We happened to have a sliced loaf of country bread leftover from the weekend. That’s something that never happens. I said breakfast for dinner and the kids immediately say pancakes or waffles. They prefer sweet breakfast for sure. I mentioned French Toast and got YES’s all around.

I turned to Shae and said it’s time to make dinner. She cracked the eggs, whisked them up, dunked the bread and sprinkled the cinnamon. She was the last to eat because she wanted to be sure she made dinner not just her serving. She’s not too eager to use the spatula right now. She got a little burn a week ago and it tore down her confidence in the kitchen a little. We have to build up those skills a little more again.Vanilla Brown Sugar French Toast #kidsinthekitchen

French Toast is always one of those meals that gets eaten so quickly. It takes just a little syrup or honey or powdered sugar to make it perfect. This one was doctored up with my coffee creamer. I don’t use it very often so I thought it would make a tasty addition to the egg mix instead of milk. I now want to try this with all different kinds of creamers.

Vanilla Brown Sugar French Toast

Ingredients

  • Hearty Sliced Bread
  • 4-6 eggs
  • 1/4 cup flavored creamer
  • cinnamon
  • butter for pan

Directions

In a large skillet melt a teaspoon of butter over medium heat.
In a wide bowl whisk together eggs and creamer.
Dunk bread in egg mixture and place in hot skillet. Fit 2-3 slices in pan but don’t overcrowd.
Sprinkle cinnamon on bread in the pan.
Flip over to brown second side of bread. Continue through loaf of bread, adding more butter as needed.
Serve with butter, syrup or honey and powdered sugar.

Having the right bread is key for this recipe. It doesn’t work as well with super soft breads as you won’t get a really good crisp. Don’t skip the butter either.Vanilla Brown Sugar French Toast #kidsinthekitchen
