Valentine's French Toast

For the Little ones you love...
and the big ones too!

So, here's just something fun you might want to surprise your Valentines with this year... a little love-shaped breakfast! So simple and fast, and something different than all the other days of the week!

3 eggs
1/4 cup milk
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp vanilla
4 slices of dense bread

Fresh berries
Real Maple Syrup
In a large flat dish (I use my Pyrex dish) whisk together your eggs, milk, cinnamon, and vanilla. Then soak your dense bread (or day old french bread) in your mixture until it softens- not until the point that it's soggy, but until it softens. Then heat a sliver of butter in your pan on medium heat until it melts, spread it around, and lay your toast in your pan, allowing it to brown on one side before you flip it to the other. Once it's done, lay it on a plate and use a cookie cutter to get your heart shape. Serve both pieces of the toast, sprinkled with fresh berries and real maple syrup! YUM! Happy Valentines Day to your taste buds!

Note: I use Ezekiel bread for this and it works great because it is such a thick bread... but day old french bread works wonderfully too! This recipe will make approximately 4 slices.
