That was the sound made by Music Guy (MG) this morning as he looked at his breakfast...

Cinnamon French Toast with Bananas and Applewood Smoked Bacon.

There is no "recipe" for this French toast.... I just scramble 6 eggs in a flat-bottomed dish, and added about 1/2 -3/4 cup of half and half, lots of Saigon cinnamon and a couple of dashes of pure vanilla extract. The big "SECRET" is the bread. Fresh Market makes a cinnamon raisin bread that is perfect for French toast. I buy the unsliced bread and cut it into thick slices. The texture of the bread soaks up the egg mixture perfectly. Griddle up these slices in a non-stick, DRY pan (I hate greasy, oily French toast!). Top with butter or Olivio and maple syrup. Add bananas...or strawberries, blueberries, etc...or a mixture of all three and enjoy. If you really need additional sweetness, you can sprinkle with powdered sugar.

What a way to start the day.... and it's quick and easy!

Wow! I'm hearing the song, "sum,sum summertime..." (beachboys?)when I look at that plate of goodies. Have a great weekend, Jane!

Oh yummy, this looks so good and I was already hungry. I love Fresh Market! We don't have one here, of course, we don't have much, BUT there is one right by my cousin's house in Neptune Beach, FL. I was just by there yesterday.

I have those same chargers, aren't they wonderful?

Hugs (I'm so excited, I can't stand it!)
