I love Labor Day. Not only is it my last chance to wear white, it’s usually a long, lazy weekend, spent puttering around the kitchen, watching lots of tv, and watching the husband fire up the grill for some smokey barbecue goodness. Long, lazy days like this call for long, leisurely breakfasts- and here’s one of my favorites: pancakes and french toast with some fried eggs.
Do you need recipes for the above, really? Here’s a link to my favorite pancake recipe, and for perfect, perfect, perfect french toast, see below:
Delish French Toast
1 cup whole milk
3 large eggs
2 tablespoons honey
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
8 slices stale bread (I like a good, hearty country loaf, but it’s really up to you)
4 tablespoons salted butter
In a bowl, whisk together the milk, eggs, honey and salt. Pour into a shallow pan (like a pie pan) and set aside.
Preheat your oven to 375F. Gently dip your bread slices into the egg mixture, allowing to soak for around half a minute on each side. Let these sit for around two minutes.
Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a nonstick pan over medium-low heat. Place 2 slices of your nicely soaked bread at a time into the pan, and cook until golden brown and delicious.
Serve immediately with or without your stack of pancakes, and some well-fried eggs.
