We actually had this breakfast yesterday morning, while hubby was home to take care of Little Man and his arm. I would have never been able to pull this off this morning. I will be lucky to get a shower.
Yesterday this was the hit of the day. Yummy French toast in a sweetheart red with strawberry syrup and heart shape butter. Oldest Little Man even requested a THIRD piece.
So this morning of the Day of Love I thought I would share this super quick and super easy Valentine's breakfast.
Sweetheart French Toast
loaf of French bread
1 cup milk
dash of salt
1 tsp of vanilla
1/2 cup flour
red food coloring
butter as needed
strawberry jam, warmed OR strawberry syrup
butter, cut in heart shapes
Heat up a griddle.
Cut up loaf of bread into 8-10 slices. Mix eggs, milk, salt, vanilla and food coloring. Then lightly mix in flour. Melt butter in griddle. Dredge slices in mixture and then cook. Several minutes on each side, until golden.
Serve with warm strawberry syrup and a couple cute heart-shaped butters. I just cute them with a paring knife into a heart shape.
Happy Valentines' Day.
Little Man Update: He is doing a lot better. Should be off bed rest today. Already requesting more walk around time. Although that will be monitored, I about had a heart attack when I saw him standing on my elliptical machine. UGGG.
