Earlier in the week, I shared Pancakes, Camp Wander Style. If you missed it, take a minute to click on the link and learn about our secret ingredient to a fluffy stack of blueberry pancakes.
For today we're going to finish the skillet breakfast sweets series with French Toast!
Just in Time for the Weekend!
The heart of a sweet breakfast, now where's the bacon?!
A loaf of good bread, fresh or a few days old
3/4 half & half
Splash of orange juice
Cinnamon for sprinkling
Powdered sugar for sprinkling
And of course: CW highly recommends using a cast iron skillet.
If you don't have one yet, it's time to go shopping! They're very inexpensive and can last decades if cared for properly. In fact! We're still using one that Rustic bought in the 70's for his camping adventures in WY. Trust me, they get better with age, like me!
Cast iron does age well. Me? That's a big negative, Ten Four.
While we're on the subject of cast iron skillets...it's time to start warming yours up. It's best to give your skillet about 10 minutes to get good and hot. I like to start mine at med/low because very soon, you will be adding a pat of butter and you don't want it burn for the love of Paula Deen.
But, you do want it to sizzle when it hits your skillet.
Slice enough bread for your needs, a generous 1/2 inch thick.
Break 3 eggs, pour in half and half , vanilla and just a splash of orange juice!
Start putting your slices to soak in the egg mixture.
Melt a couple pats of butter.
Here we go! With enthusiasm, place the eggy slices in the hot bubbly butter and prepare for a great breakfast. Especially, if you serve bacon along side because seriously, bacon with French Toast covered in maple syrup is a killer combo and make children, husbands, boyfriends, girlfriends and strangers happy campers!
Bubble, bubble and sizzle...
As your French Toast approaches perfection, sprinkle with powder sugar and a bit of cinnamon.
God bless cast iron cookware!
Enjoy your weekend, it's almost here! Spend some time preparing a delicious breakfast for yourself, your family and friends...it's such a great way to start the day!
Rebecca... feeling french and craving bacon.
