Waking up in the morning for some people can be sheer drudgery, with the prospect of having to groom for the day coupled with the prospect of needing to prepare something to eat. To expedite the latter concern, many individuals simply eat a quick bowl of cereal or gulp down some coffee, since that’s the simplest way of dealing with the issue.
Any elaborate preparation of a meal is usually only reserved for holidays or lazy weekends, where there’s no rush to do anything. However, the ease that comes with one recipe of French toast is not only simple but can also use up bread that’s no longer fresh. The only major appliance you’ll need to craft this meal is a slow cooker with a six-quart capacity.
To begin, simply toss as many pieces of bread as you’ll need for the meal. Depending on individual tastes, they can be thrown in as they are, or torn apart to offer those eating the finished product easy bit-sized opportunities.
The mixture that the bread will soak in is prepared next, with the quartet of ingredients consisting of eggs, milk, vanilla extract and cinnamon. The vanilla is merely one option, with virtually any other possible flavor also serving that purpose.
Once this concoction is mixed together, it’s then poured over the bread, making sure to extensively coat each piece. Brown sugar is then added one, again with the amount dependent upon the likes of those eating the meal.
Once these are all combined, the slow cooker should be covered and the meal should cook at least for a few hours (for lunch or dinner considerations), or simply overnight. In order to protect against the possibility of the mix spilling, make sure to use a locking lid.
Waking up to French toast that’s ready to be eaten is something that figures to delight most parents that have to cook wither for themselves or their children. The food can be topped with whipped cream, syrup or even whatever fruit happens to be available.
French toast actually dates back to approximately the fourth Century, but its name obviously points toward France as the country that popularized it as a meal. The French term that’s used to signify it actually is a translation for “lost bread,” which simply defines bread that’s either gone stale or is otherwise not desirable anymore.
