Home Made Love: Nick's Easy Like Sunday Morning French Toast

My baby is the grill master, okay? Ribs, chicken, fish, vegetables, Cocoa Puffs—whatever Nick cooks over charcoal always comes to our dinner table perfectly crisp, insanely juicy, and super flavorful. I mean, The. Boy. Is. Bad. (And plus, everything tastes better with a little smoke on it, and definitely when someone else is cookin'—I'm just sayin'.)

But dig it: Nick also has quite the special gift when it comes to breakfast foods, too. Home made waffles, bacon, grits, biscuits—when your boy wakes up and starts knocking around pots, pans, and the waffle iron? Right—everybody in the house gets really emotional. There's lots of fist pumping and jumping around and stuff, and when he calls us all down to the breakfast table, we do lots of happy dancing. We put our backs in it when he whips up his Early Sunday Morning French Toast, which is, in a word, amazing. Usually, he holes himself up in a corner of the kitchen, next to the spice cabinet, and, like some evil scientist, tosses together a potion of cinnamony, sugary goodness to dip bread into before he splashes it in a hot pan full of butter. Ha' Mercy. But Nick very generously figured out his Early Sunday Morning French Toast recipe so that I could share it with you. *Inserting pictures of you doing the happy dance here!*

  1. Nice Nice Nice!! A man that can cook?? WOW girl, we're not worthy *bowing down to you* That French toast looks amazing!!!

  2. Okay, maybe I shouldn't have read this post on an empty stomach! I'm gonna have to try the french toast now!

  3. We are french toast afficionados at my house, too. This is a good recipe and very close to what we use. We set it over the top by adding rum bananas.

    * 2 tablespoons rum
    * 2 tablespoons sugar
    * 2 tablespoons butter
    * 2 tablespoons orange juice
    * 2 large bananas sliced on an angle

    Heat rum, sugar, butter and orange juice in a skillet until the butter is melted. Add the bananas. Bring to a boil over medium heat, then lower the heat so the sauce is bubbling gently. Cook until the bananas are softened, about 4 minutes.

  4. I am so hating right now. Greg just learned how to cook catfish, lol! It's all he can cook!

  5. Ooo yes! I know what you mean. Sean's a master at breakfast as well. The kids and I love it so much, we have it for dinner sometimes. My favorite is the grits. So buttery. I swear I can't get mine right like that. But trust when I tell you Bob Evan's need to sit in his rocker and just rock because the old man has nothing on Sean's maple links.

    That's right! LOL

  6. Elita: THANK YOU!!!! We are SO going to try the rum bananas... sounds absolutely delicious!

  7. Wow. That breakfast sounds awesome. You are one lucky gal.
