If you are planning a special breakfast for the holidays, make it easy on yourself. As a tradition, we use Hawiian Bread (you can find it by the deli) for our holiday frech toast...but that's not the best part (or maybe it is, but that isn't what my post is about). Last year I had some left over flavored coffee creamer from a get together. I like my coffee black so was not going to use it the conventional way. Always looking for new ideas to make normal things extraordinary (I was probably out of milk) I used the creamer in my french toast mixture. So different, but so good!
There are a ton of flavors out there to make your french toast festive. How about Belgium White Chocolate Macadamia, Southern Butter Pecan, White Chocolate Raspberry, or Mocha Almond Fudge. They have sugar free and fat free choices as well. I went with the Vanilla Caramel, as I didn't know how adventurous my little ones would be. Also, I'm not a huge fan of chocolate for breakfast. Substitute it for the milk you add to any french toast recipe. It really does give it a kick.
I don't have a set recipe for french toast. Just throw together some eggs and creamer. I usually add sugar, vanilla and spices, but because there is already sugar and flavoring in the creamer you can skip it. Need a french toast recipe? Go to RecipeZaar to find one that fits you.
Just think of the possibilities.
