We are not a big breakfast family at all, so its normally not a thing for us to eat it since we are always on the go in the morning, but Bentley has Spring Break this week so the other day I figured I would whip up some easy French Toast. Both my kids enjoyed it and got a thumbs up from the hubby so i think its a win. If you like it and decided to make the whole loaf of bread or have leftovers, you can put them in a zip block bag and chuck them in the freezer, then in the mornings you can cook them in the toaster a simple and fast breakfast to go. Yay for mom wins.
Easy French Toast
I let my bread sit on the stove top for a few hours to kind of dry out and easier to work with that I have found.
Preheat oven to 200 ( For Holding)
Combine eggs, milk, and vanilla in shallow bowl
Preheat large nonstick pan on medium-high 2-3 mintues, Add 1 tablespoon butter; swirl to coat
Dip bread slices one at a time, into the egg mixture coating both sides; remove and let excess drip off, then place in pan Cooking for 2-3 minutes on each side or until golden brown. ( place in oven, on baking sheet, to keep warm)
Serve with a little Powered sugar on top and some fruit on the side. (optional)
So recently we’ve been doing movie nights in the house, and I would make a corresponding dinner to go with it. We started with the classics and are slowly movie up, the other night we watched a movie not really that popular now but is still an wonderful movie. Lady and the Tramp. Of course the first thing that should come to mind is the iconic scene between the two lovers, while sitting at a table made just for them by the chef he brings out the delicious plate of spaghetti while the chef sings and Tramp scoots a meatball with his nose to lady then the two accidentally grab the same piece of spaghetti and kiss, so adorable!
So of course the dinner I made for us that went with this movie was spaghetti and meatballs, but my recipe I’m sharing with you today were for the awesome meatballs I made to go with it! I do have to say that when you mix everything together, mix it with your kids! We had a fun family cooking night, Bentley loved squishing the ground beef in between his finger. Just of course make sure to wash your hands before and after, and to never let anyone eat raw meat. It’s not like cookie dough, it will seriously get you sick.
Lady and the Tramp Meatballs
Combine onions, ground beef, eggs, garlic, pepper flakes, breadcrumbs, oregano, salt, fennel, and pepper.Mix until combined.
Roll into 8 to 9 large meatballs
Heat oil in large nonstick skillet over medium heat/high heat. Add meatballs, and sear on all sides a few at a time.
Add Spaghetti sauce and let simmer on Medium/low for 25 to 30 mintues or until the indise of the meatball reaches 160 F.
Serve on top of Spaghetti pasta.
