French Toast for One

Happy Thursday y'all! So close to the weekend, I can already feel my body relaxing. I've been driving all over the place this week and am looking forward to parking myself by the pool and reading a good book this weekend. Wohoo! I'm getting excited just talking about it. I love taking it easy and treating myself over the weekend. I especially enjoy brunch and breakfast foods, but rarely used to treat myself to fun breakfasts because it can be difficult to cook for just one. Reheated breakfast isn't usually very good, so large recipes are out of the picture for me. Even when you get the recipe divided down, it can be cumbersome to go through a ton of trouble for one serving. Those feelings disappeared one weekend when I was talking to my dad about this situation. He's an AMAZING chef and is definitely where I get my love of food from. We worked out an incredibly simple and decadent recipe that I want to share with y'all today.
french toast, breakfast for one, recipe
French toast is always a winning breakfast food. The crunchy texture mixed with the flavorful batter and sweet toppings just make my mouth water. I'm guilty of making this more than I'd like to admit, but when you find something so easy that turns out so perfectly- how can you resist?! Just FYI, I cook with stainless steel cookware so your skillet may need to be over a slightly higher heat to achieve the same cook times. If you don't want to turn up the heat, just be patient because it will take a little longer to achieve the crunchy perfect texture of this recipe in a nonstick pan at these cooking temperatures. Additionally, this is just a basic recipe- so feel free to play around with it. Add nutmeg, vanilla extract,  more or less cinnamon to fit your taste, or top your toast with fruit! The possibilities are endless and that is one of my favorite things about cooking for yourself. The only pallet to please is your own! Now finally, here is the simple and perfect recipe to make french toast for one!

French Toast for One

You'll need...
2 slices of bread
1 egg
1/8 cup milk
1/2 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tbsp butter
1 tsp powdered sugar (optional, for garnish)

Steps to take...
1. Whisk the egg with a fork or whisk. Once the yolk is totally blended, add in the milk, sugar, and cinnamon. Mix until fully combined.
2. Heat a skillet over medium-low heat. Melt butter into pan once hot.
3. Soak each slice of bread into the whisked egg mixture and make sure both sides are coated!
4. Cook soaked slices of bread for about 4 minutes on one side or until browned. Flip and cook second side for about 3 minutes, or until browned.
5. Add syrup/fruit/powdered sugar and enjoy immediately!

What are your favorite breakfast treats on the weekend? Do you ever cook a fancy breakfast just for yourself?
