As far back as I can remember my absolute FAVORITE breakfast meal was my dad’s French Toast. I’m not sure if it was because it tasted sooo good or if it was just the fact that my dad made it…which meant he was eating breakfast with us (something that didn’t happen during the week because he started work at 6am everyday). Whenever he would ask us kids what we wanted for breakfast it was a no brainer. I always wanted french toast! So many times we would be short on bread or milk so someone would run up to the little local store Collins, in Wasco, and grab what we needed (I remember even riding my bike there a few times and lugging home a gallon of milk. I would do anything for my dad’s french toast!)
When my dad, sister and I would go on campouts with Indian Princesses we always stopped at this little breakfast diner on the way with the tribe in Lake Geneva, WI. Every single time I ordered french toast, 6 pieces to be exact. I could put that stuff down like chocolate milk!
The morning of my wedding I was getting ready upstairs in my bathroom of 23 years. I came downstairs and found my dad making a big ol’ plate of french toast just for me (geez I’m getting all teary eyed over silly french toast!) He and I sat there and enjoyed my favorite breakfast (now one of my most favorite memories). I think it was my dad’s way of saying that no matter what changes in life I will always be his little girl.
French toast is my comfort food. It reminds me of my most favorite person, my dad!
Lets make some!
This makes for 1 1/2 servings (roughly 4 pieces of large bread) so double or triple as needed (and if you’re making it for me, make6 times this amount!!! I’ll eat it all!) I really hope that that give this a try! It is my most favorite breakfast food in the world! As always, if you try it let me know what you think!
