Classic French Toast

This is now my official my go-to French toast recipe. It is sooooo good! I guess I forgot about eating French toast for breakfast, because I haven’t had it in several years. Pancakes and waffles seem to always overshadow french toast, and they shouldn’t.

This recipe, from Tastes Better From Scratch is super easy, and takes just minutes to whip up. It’s so easy, you can do it holding a baby in your arms (just Harper lol).

Mmmmm. Sooo good! I seriously may eat this for breakfast every day of the week, especially if Harper has a vote.

She absolutely loved it. I think we all get in a rut of eating the same foods over and over, and both Harper and I enjoyed a delicious change.

At her age, I still chop up her foods in pea-sized bites, but she was so excited, she reached across and grabbed a slice and stuffed it in her mouth! I had to pull it out because she looked like she was attempting the chubby bunny (stuffing as many marshmallows as you can in your mouth!) haha.
