Lipstick in the Kitchen: Berry Simple French toast

So she finally came home with you last night now its morning and you can’t believe she’s still there lying next to you, so now what? Make her breakfast! Show her you got skills in the kitchen too, you will definitely impress her with this fancy French toast. You’ll keep her coming back for breakfast if you know what I mean (wink, wink). The presentation, the colors, the sweetness…yeah you got this!


French toast

4 slices of bread your choice
3 eggs
2/3 cups of whole milk or buttermilk
¼ teaspoon of vanilla
¼ teaspoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon sugar
½ tablespoon butter

Berry Topping

11/2 cups fresh sliced strawberries
1 cup fresh blueberries
1 tablespoon butter
2 tablespoons sugar
¼ teaspoon vanilla
¼ cup water

French toast: mix eggs, milk, vanilla, cinnamon and sugar thoroughly till completely blended. Take your four slices of bread and cut them in half so you have 8 pieces Texas toast is great, but my favorite bread to use is a grainy bread with nuts. Take your bread and submerge in mixture place in a large heated grill pan with your ½ tablespoon melted butter on medium heat about 2 minutes on each side till cooked thru.

Berry topping:

Melt butter in medium saucepan add sugar and cook still blended together about 3 minutes add your strawberries and blueberries, vanilla and water cook for about 3 to 4 minutes so your fruit is tender and warm but not soft. Let berry sauce cool for a bit and then top your French toast you can add whip cream of ice cream for an extra treat but very good on its own.
