MJ's Great Nana's French Toast


When I was a kid and when we visited my grandmother there was no greater breakfast treat than when she would make french toast.  Even though my dad knew the recipe and would make it every once in a while it just didn't taste the same as when my Nana would make it.  Thankfully my dad taught me the recipe and I now make it for MJ whenever I get a chance and I am proud to say that she loves much as I did as a kid.  You tell her that she is getting french toast and the singing starts and the proclamations that you are the best ever or that this is the best day ever starts.  Hum, might need to make some this weekend.

1/2 loaf wheat bread
4 eggs or egg substitute
1/4 cup non-dairy milk of choice
2 twists of pepper grinder
2 twists of the salt grinder
1/4 stick of Earth Balance non-dairy butter melted
Plus more Earth Balance to grease pan

Preheat electric griddle to 350*.  In a bowl mix together egg, non-dairy milk, pepper, salt, and melted Earth Balance.  Dip bread in egg mix and place on griddle.  Cook each side for approximately 2 mins each or until egg is cooked and bread is golden.

I like to sprinkle each slice with some ground cinnamon and then top with a little pure maple syrup.
