Another Christmas tradition that my family does every year is to have a huge Christmas breakfast. It is something the little kids who still believe in Santa can’t understand. When they get older and the magic wears off a bit, they will come to appreciate the real things in life, like delicious breakfasts where you gorge yourself until you feel ill, now that is my kinda magic. Seriously this is the thing that all the adults in the family look forward to the most. The whole breakfast centers around cinnamon french toast. It is divine. And this year of course Johnny and I were not home so we missed out, but Johnny made it for me when we finally made it back to our house. It makes way more than just 2 people should eat, but that didn’t stop us. And yet I wonder why I gained weight and lost that stinkin work contest, fancy cheese and french toast couldn’t have helped much.
You have to make the french toast the night before you want to eat it and let is soak in the goodness for a few hours.
After they have hung out all night soaking up the juices you throw them in a pan and cook those babies up.
And don’t you even dream of ruining them with Pam spray. These little guys deserve to be fried in nothing but the best. (Butter works too, lots and lots of butter)
Oh and the syrup….let’s just say I could drink it with a straw. It is a treat in itself.
You want to make sure you get more syrup than you think you will need, because you will need it. I promise.
This was the first of about 10 that I ate that morning.
