The Case of French Vanilla Toast

Have we talked breakfast yet? Well, we must. Most important meal of the day and all that. At the very least, food (preferably something sweet) is my reason for getting out of bed in the morning. Kinda kidding. Kinda not.

Here's a perfect example of Becki Green getting-out-of-bed motivation. And it's not just an indulgence. It has protein. The secret here is the 1/4 tsp vanilla. Which starts me wondering... Should I invent a Dutch Chocolate Toast? 

French Vanilla Toast

2 eggs
1/4 tsp vanilla
2 slices whole-wheat bread
1 tsp butter
icing sugar
maple syrup

In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, vanilla and salt to taste. Dip both sides of the bread in the egg mixture and let soak just a little. Fry in the butter until golden brown on both sides. Dust with icing sugar and serve with maple syrup. Serves 1.


  1. This looks and sounds sooooo yummy. And LUV the sliced bananas on top. Sounds like a perfect 'breakfast for lunch' idea today. :D

    1. Good morning Patti! Ah, you came to this post through French Banana Toast. Yes, I think the bananas are a great addition. They make it a meal. And a healthier one with the portion of fruit. A comfort meal for any time of day, as you say.
