DSC_0465

Sometimes a picture just tells the whole story.  I love the golden crusty bread dripping with syrup and butter just running down the side.  Weekend breakfast, something this good is just reserved for the weekend, right?  Crystal Farms has launched 3 new products to help you create yummy “weekend” breakfast any day.  I worked with Crystal Farms and Twin Cities Live on a recent segment to give viewers breakfast ideas using these time-saving product.  You can watch the March 29, 2013 segment here.  We also made 5 Ingredient Egg Muffins and you can find that recipe here.

For the segment, we made Classic French Toast and used the Crystal Farms French Toast Batter-it has everything you need in it (eggs, milk, vanilla and cinnamon).  While Classic French Toast is oh so good, I’ve included some fun alternatives too. I made the french toast, froze it and then baked it in my toaster oven.  It was just as good as the day I made it!

Ingredients:

1 cup Crystal Farms French Toast Batter

½ Loaf Soft French Bread (sliced into 8 pieces)

Pour Crystal Farms French Toast Batter into a bowl and dip bread.  Cook bread in a nonstick pan over medium heat that has been sprayed with nonstick spray.  Cook two minutes on each side until golden brown.

  • Easter Swirl French Toast (Use ¾ cup Crystal Farms French Toast Batter and 4 slices of Easter Swirl Bread).
