Leftover Dinner for Breakfast…

I’m not talking about pizza or chinese, a la college.  Last night we had a birthday dinner for the lovely Miss Lisa…spaghetti, french bread, and cheesecake were on the menu.  We had a wonderful time, so glad Lisa decided to share her day with us. 

Fast forward to this morning.  It is a gloomy, overcast, chilly(ish), lazy kinda morning.  I have about a quarter of the loaf of french bread sitting on the counter.  I’m thinking FRENCH TOAST!  Just enough for me & little Em.  I was so happy to find all of the ingredients on hand.  This is one of those recipes I just accidentally came up with…and it was awesome.  The texture of the middle of the bread when done is custard-y (one of my favorite things on the planet). 

Here’s what you do:  Beat 2 eggs with 1 can of evaporated milk in a shallow & wide dish, sprinkle in cinnamon (do this to your liking).  Slice french bread into 1 inch pieces.  Put bread slices into egg mixture & allow them to soak it up like a sponge.  Cook on a hot (greased…I use butter) griddle or frying pan over medium-low heat.  Flip when browned.  It is done when the center is somewhat firm (you can always cut it to check).  Serve with whatever strikes your fancy…today I used Mrs. Butterworth’s.

Today’s secret revealed…cooking that & writing this have been the most productive things I have done today…I really need to get motivated!
