A couple of weekends ago, Southern Honey and I had the opportunity to indulge in a lazy Sunday morning breakfast. It can be hard for us to agree on what to make because we don’t like the same things (and because I usually forget to buy bacon or sausage to have around the house), so being reminded that he loves French toast was a boon.
The benefit of having bought some new ingredients to cook with for Thanksgiving and having leftovers of them meant that I had some fun new ingredients to play around with for everyday occasions. I like my French toast normally with milk, eggs, and cinnamon, simple enough. But this time around, I not only had cherry topping and powdered sugar to have instead of syrup, I had heavy cream and ground nutmeg. When I was finished, it smelled like the holidays all over the house, and the French toast tasted delicious. I think I’ve found what I’m making for Christmas morning!
Holiday French Toast
1/4 c heavy cream
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
5 slices bread
1/4 can cherry pie filling
Whisk together the eggs, cream, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Heat a heavy-bottom pan over medium heat and spray with cooking spray. Soak each slice of bread in the egg mixture, then place in the pan. Cook on each side until golden-brown. Heat the cherry pie filling in the microwave, and top each serving of French toast with it and a dusting of powdered sugar. Enjoy with a mug of hot chocolate, your favorite coffee, or some orange juice.
