Quick & Easy French Toast

We have been eating our Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Pancakes for years and years and years on Saturday mornings.  It’s our favorite breakfast recipe.  That being said, the other day, Andrew asked if we could make French toast for a change…and being a French toast lover myself, I was totally on board.  So, this isn’t so much a recipe (because everyone knows how to make French Toast!)…this is more of a reminder to make it.  We had forgotten how much we loved it and now,  we’ve had it three Saturdays in a row.  True love.
My version can easily be doubled for larger families, but for us, we use half a whole grain French baguette which produces 5 nice thick slices.  You can use any kind of bread you like (our bakery just makes an amazing whole grain baguette).  You can use a regular French baguette, thick slices of sandwich bread, Challah…whatever you have will work.   
Tomorrow morning…sleep in and then enjoy this Quick and Easy French Toast.
Happy Saturday!
This recipe serves four but can be easily doubled.
Shopping List
1 French baguette (or the bread of your choice), about 5 or 6 slices
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 1/2 cups milk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup butterscotch chips
1 cup slivered almonds
Maple Syrup to garnish
Preheat your griddle or a large non-stick pan to medium-high heat.
In a large mixing bowl, beat your eggs and milk together with a whisk.  Whisk in vanilla.  Dip each slice of bread in egg mixture and place it in your hot skillet.  Brown each side about two minutes before flipping.  Once browned on both sides, remove to serving plate and sprinkle chocolate and butterscotch chips down over the top along with slivered almonds. Drizzle syrup down over the top.
I mean…it’s just your basic French toast with a few fun toppings.  Saturday mornings shouldn’t be complicated :).

    What? No Cinnamon? I love the smell of making french toast. I have an overnight french toast casserole that is amazing~ though not as easy as this to put together šŸ™‚

    I'm a sourdough gal myself when it comes to french toast. But I love the idea of adding slivered almonds – yummy!

    Shay, why don't you use cinnamon? I know it can easily be added or left out…but I'm just curious- it's my favorite part šŸ˜‰

      You can totally add it!! I love, love, love cinnamon…but in this version of French Toast, I feel like it competes too much with the butterscotch and chocolate chips, so I omit it. Feel free to add it though :). Happy Saturday!
