Breakfast For Dinner

I had breakfast for dinner last night. French toast with a side of sausage. It was awesome. I haven't made this French Toast in a while, but the best part about it is how well it freezes. I can make the full recipe on Sunday night, freeze it and have breakfast on the go for the rest of the week. Just turn the toaster dial about halfway (so it heats for about 2-3 minutes), put your frozen French toast in and you're done.

I think the original recipe is from Great Harvest Bread Company, but since they seem to be dying off where I live I am going to claim it as my own.

I use Texas Toast for this recipe. I mention this because usually when I tell someone this recipe they either don't know you can buy Texas Toast at the grocery store or they get confused and think I'm disgusting for using garlic bread to make my French Toast. With the internet and hyperlinks I can quickly illustrate the difference.

6 eggs
1 1/2 cups milk, can be skim or any other
1/4 cup sugar
3 tablespoons orange juice
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon salt
Cinnamon, optional
Nutmeg, optional

Mix everything together, batter your bread, throw it on the griddle and cook until golden brown. It will make an entire loaf of Texas Toast (plus an additional 3-5 pieces), which is roughly twice the thickness of normal bread.

YUM!! I LOVE breakfast for dinner!! Strange how I don't enjoy dinner for breakfast. A hamburger or steak do not appeal to me at 8am. Alton Brown did a show about waffles and said they freeze really well too. I'm thinking about getting a waffle maker and doing that b/c frozen waffles cost a ton and Fia eats them every morning.

Lauren has a restaurant grade waffle iron and it is so awesome. its the kind where you pour, put the handle down, turn and flip. Like what you'd see in the breakfast area of a nice hotel.

She has left it at work for like 3 months now, but it makes the best waffles ever. We used to be dumb enough to say "no waffle/pancake mix? that sucks, no waffles or pancakes for breakfast". Then one morning we decided we probably had all the ingredients they put in those boxes and looked up a recipe on Food Network. So good so easy.

Dude, why the heck does Lauren have every fricking awesome kitchen gadget imaginable? I'm so jealous....I want a waffle maker...and a food processor...and all that cool pastry stuff she has too. I never buy the "Just add water" pancake mixes anymore...its a waste of money b/c I almost always have all the ingredients in the house...and they're way better!
