"I'd rather have boring plain toast instead of French toast," said nobody, ever.

I love French toast. There's just something magical that happens when you dip a piece of bread in an eggy-cinnamon-y batter and pan-fry it until the edges get all crispy. And top it with a little drizzle of syrup for sweetness. It's a special breakfast for me and making it is a ritual reserved for the weekends. I usually make a batch of French toast before my long runs or rides, since it's a more filling breakfast, with the added protein from the egg, to sustain me for a longer workout. And eating French toast just motivates me to get up early in the morning and run. On Sunday long runs, this girl is powered by French toast :)

What's your special weekend breakfast?

Here's my recipe, so that you, too, can run those extra miles powered by French toast.

You will need:
2-3 slices of bread (I use whole wheat homemade bread)
1 egg
1/4 cup milk
A dash of salt
A dusting of cinnamon 
A splash of vanilla extract

Beat egg in a shallow bowl. Add milk, salt, cinnamon, and vanilla extract. Dip a slice of bread in the egg mixture, flipping it over to get both sides soaked. I like to flip it a few times to make sure it has absorbed as much egg as possible. Fry in a lightly oiled pan, until golden brown on each side. Repeat with the rest of the bread until the egg mixture is gone.
