Normally I wake up at the crack of dawn (or before), schluff off to the kitchen, pour a bowl of cereal and milk, and chomp down, just trying to wake up. Then about 30 minutes later my husband wakes up and does the same thing. It is one of the things that just is what it is. When you have to head out at 7:10 in the morning -- and you are not really a morning person -- that is as good as it gets.
But not during summer! Whenever I have time off of work I get to sleep in until 7:10 (yes, I try to wake up at that time even though I have nowhere I need to be) and I can enjoy my breakfast.
Surprisingly, that "All I need for breakfast is cereal, every single day, nothing different ever, please" man of mine was down for this, as well.
Really, who wouldn't be?
Nutella (or in my case, cocoa almond spread) sandwich fried into french toast, with strawberries and powdered sugar on top... Even though he does not believe bacon and eggs are breakfast food, this counts. Ok, ok... we can save bacon and eggs for dinner. But this is a new breakfast favorite for us!
1/2 lb. of strawberries, tops cut off and sliced in half
3 T of white sugar, divided
8 slices of bread (white, preferably)
Nutella or Cocoa Almond Spread
1/4 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
a few dashes of cinnamon
2 T butter, divided into for parts
- Mix strawberries and 2T of sugar together. Set aside.
- Make four chocolate sandwiches.
- Mix eggs, milk, cinnamon, remaining white sugar, and vanilla together. Dip on sandwich at a time into mixture, putting on non-stick skillet with butter melted, medium heat. Make sure to get both sides eggy.
- Fry each sandwich until light golden color on each side. Top with powdered sugar through fine mesh seive (if you have one) and put strawberries on top.
