Buttermilk Whole Wheat French Toast

Holidays are perfect times to indulge in the delicious foods you usually avoid, whether for dietary reasons or lack-of-time reasons. Waking up on a lazy morning this past holiday season, I had a craving for a more decadent breakfast than my usual granola or oatmeal, but I didn’t want to spend an inordinate amount of time on it. I spied a loaf of bread sitting on the counter and was struck with inspiration - French toast! Eggs, milk, bread, and a frying pan are the basic things needed for this delicious breakfast treat. This recipe uses buttermilk for a little extra kick of flavor.


Ingredients: (makes 4-5 slices)
1 cup buttermilk (I made some using 1 cup 2% milk + 1 TBSP lemon juice)
4 large eggs (I used 1 cup EggBeaters)
2 TBSP maple syrup (honey could work if you don’t have syrup)
optional: cinnamon, nutmeg
4-5 slices whole wheat bread (thick is best, but normal sandwich bread is good as well, as long as it is a little firm)

In a bowl large enough to fit a slice of bread, beat the eggs well. Add the buttermilk and mix well. Stir in maple syrup. For an optional dash of extra flavor, season the batter with cinnamon and nutmeg.

Heat a little oil in a pan on medium heat. Dredge a slice of bread in the egg mixture, making sure it is soaked through. Fry the bread slices for about 5 minutes on each side, until they have browned and the edges are a little crispy.


Drizzle (or drown) with maple syrup and enjoy!
