Let's Eat!!

When it comes to breakfast time in this house, you better get yours quick or you're out of luck!

With my best friend in town from college, I made our favorite breakfast!
French toast stuffed with cream cheese and raisins
Apricot preserves and orange juice syrup
Old Bay and onion hash browns

For the stuffed french toast, what you need is:
  • Bread
  • Eggs
  • Milk
  • Cream Cheese
  • Raisins

Defrost the cream cheese to soften it.  Mix in the raisins.
Spread the cream cheese and raisins between two slices of bread.
After beating the eggs and mixing in milk, dip both sides of the bread in the milk and eggs.
Be sure to spray the pan with Pam to keep the bread from sticking to the bottom.
Cook until golden brown on both sides.

For the syrup:
  • Orange Juice
  • Apricot Preserves

Simply mix Apricot Preserves and Orange Juice in a bowl.
For 1/2 cup of preserves, mix with 1/4 cup of OJ.
For 1 cup of preserves, mix 1/2 cup of OJ.
And so on...

For the hash browns:
  • Bag of frozen hash browns
  • Old Bay
  • Minced Onion

Spray pan with Pam and pour desired amount of hash browns into pan.
As for the minced onion and Old Bay, add to pan while cooking.
It's up to you how much to use.  The more onion and Old Bay, the more of a kick it will have.

I'm sorry to say, I don't have any pictures of what the final meal looked like.  When you're cooking for 5 people, it's gone before you have a chance.

I'm sure I will be making this for breakfast again very soon!  I will do what I can to get a picture next time, but I can't make any promises with the way people scarf food up around this house!

In the meantime,

  1. Dear Vicki, I LOVE YOU! LOL! WOW!! I have never heard of the stuffed french toast, and I am totally gonna make it!!!!!!!!! Thank you for sharing your creative breakfast menu, I am also pretty psyched about putting Old Bay on hashbrowns (as I've never thought to do that either!) Thanks for sharing!

  2. I love you too! LOL! It's is quite a tasty meal. You can actually stuff the french toast with whatever you want; strawberries, blueberries, banana, etc. It's really the syrup that makes it. It's an odd combo, but so yummy. Another good syrup combo is Peach Preserves and OJ. As for Old Bay, it's great on everything! :o)
