Surprise Synday Breakfast

So it was last Saturday when I made egg sandwiches for breakfast and I mentioned that Hope hadn't eaten eggs just plain in forever.  The only way she will eat eggs is when I make her french toast.  Well that prompted Adam to start having a craving for french toast.  Well Sunday morning he woke up early with Hope and then they took a trip to the grocery store.  When I got up, he said he wanted to make breakfast this morning.  But he couldn't just make any old french toast, he had to make cornflake crusted french toast and the bread couldn't just be any old bread, only sourdough bread would work.  So I grabbed the camera while Adam cooked in the kitchen. 

Here we have the chef dipping the bread into the egg/milk/cinnamon mixture (3 eggs, 1/2 cup milk, 1/2t cinnamon).
After dipping the bread in the egg/milk/cinnamon mixture, he placed them in the crushed cornflakes. (2 cups).

 Then we pulled out our griddle which we hadn't used in like 4 years, and then were able to cook all the french toast together. 

Then a nice polish of powdered sugar.  Yummy!  Doesn't that look delish!  He also bought some good ole orange juice.  Good luck hubs!
We decided to have this again for Thanksgiving (we aren't eating until 4:00pm) but the sourdough bread is so thin, we had to have 2 slices, so I bought some cream cheese and we will have cream cheese stuffed french toast.  YUMMY!  Happy Thanksgiving!


  1. The French toast looks amazing. What a sweet hubby to handle it from start to finish.

    What a lousy time for a business trip. Good luck and godspeed :) Are you doing a different main dish for yourself or just going with the sides?

    Have a great Thanksgiving!

  2. No, no special dish, just eat the sides. There were so many I was stuffed. Happy Thanksgiving Runblondie!
