French Toast, To-Go!

French Toast, To-GoI never meant for this to be an on-the-go meal—I was just making it to save myself some time. But yesterday, right after I popped my frozen french toast in the toaster, I got an emergency phone call from a friend. I grabbed a paper towel, wrapped the toast up in it and headed out to the car. As I was driving to meet my friend, I ate it like toast. Because the syrup was baked in, it was just as delicious as ever!

French Toast, To-GoYou will need:

  • One egg (for every 2-3 pieces of bread)
  • Cinnamon
  • Vanilla
  • Multigrain bread (any kind will do, but I love the texture the grains add)
  • Maple syrup
  • Butter or non stick spray (butter is best for baked in flavor)

Directions:

  1. Grease a skillet or electric griddle (a large griddle makes this process much faster) and preheat on medium.
  2. Beat eggs. Mix in approx. one tablespoon of cinnamon and a teaspoon of vanilla for every three eggs.
  3. Coat each slice of bread with the egg mixture evenly on both sides. You can dab away excess egg using another piece of dry bread.
  4. Place each egg-dipped slice of bread onto the preheated skillet/griddle. Lightly brown each side (be careful not to over cook—bread will brown more during reheating).
  5. Place browned french toast slices on wax paper and lightly brush maple syrup over each slice. If you don’t have a culinary brush, use a knife to spread it.
  6. Allow french toast to cool and syrup to soak in for about ten minutes.
  7. Place two slices in a sandwich bag and place all the sandwich bags in larger freezer safe bags. Freeze overnight.

In the morning, all you have to do is grab a sandwich bag, toss your two slices in the toaster (don’t let it burn!), drop them on a paper towel, and hit the road. The butter and syrup are already baked in, so there is no mess and no silverware needed. Add a banana, and you will be starting your day with some extra protein and fiber!
