My favorite breakfast
This breakfast is the easiest pesiest breakfast ever! Also, a great way to switch it up a little bit and have an E breakfast that is NOT oatmeal!
I have to say, French Toast is hands down my favorite breakfast.
I make a homemade berry sauce (Z’s Very Berry Sauce on my Recipe page) that compliments this dish amazingly! The berry sauce is also sugar-free and falls under the THM-FP status.
When you use my berry sauce, there is no need for syrups (see yesterdays post on The Skinny on Sugar in the Healthy mom page).
Yummy Sourdough Bread
I use the San Luis Sourdough bread because it has the best texture and ingredients in a store-bought bread. Of course, if you make your own homemade bread from a sourdough starter, then that is going to be AH-mazing! But, for “drive through sues”, this bread does great. You want to make sure that your bread is made from a starter, doesn’t have fat and doesn’t have sugar.
I also love to buy the unsweetened vanilla almond milk from Costco. It is not full of the fillers and sugar that other almond milks have. I also love the fact that there is a touch of the vanilla flavor in the French toast when you use this.
Of course, to stay in the THM-E territory, you have to stay with egg whites, but when I make this for my kids, I will sometimes whisk in a couple eggs with the yolks, for a yummy crossover. Crossovers are great for growing kids! Also, I think that whole eggs make it taste even better. But, alas, I need to stay in E (THM-Energyzing) territory. 🙂
My family absolutely devoured this breakfast!
When it is silent during any given meal, then I know I did something right! 😉
Now that you’re hungry….go make it! Enjoy!
