In my original blog I just intermingled the recipes I mentioned in the blog. Many found this hard to follow. So in an effort to make the blogs more user friendly I am posting all the recipes and how to's for all the blogs here. I hope you like this new format. -Jan `

Recipes for Week #1- French Toast

Welcome to my recipe box.  I’ve been working hard on trying to figure out the best way to supply recipes to everyone that are easy to find and use.  I am hoping this layout will work well for you. 

This first post will be the recipes used in Week 1 on the Patterson’s Pantry blog.  In future posts they might be recipes for household cleansers or health and beauty aids or a pattern from Mind YourPennies, A campfire meal or camper repair tip from See the USA, or a organizational how to from Patterson’s Princess Plan. 

I’ll try to keep things broken down by categories and with links from the categories back to the how-to’s as well, please check out the links to the right to help you find the exact recipes you might be looking for.

                               French Toast
Serving Size  : 4     Preparation Time :0:10
Categories    : Breads, Breakfast Foods
  Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
--------  ------------  --------------------------------
  4        slices     Texas Toast
  1        whole  egg -- slightly beaten
  1        tablespoon  sugar
  1/2      teaspoon  vanilla
  1         cup  milk
            butter -- for frying 
Milk all ingredients except bread and butter together in a pie plate or other dish with a lip to prevent overflowing.

Melt butter in a skillet or on a griddle. 

Dip bread into milk and egg mixture on both sides to coat lightly.

Fry the bread in the butter until lightly browned on each side.

Serve with toppings of your choice.

Make up a larger batch of this and store either in the refrigerator or freezer for quick grab and go breakfasts, simply heat in the microwave or toaster oven and it's ready to go.  If your family prefers French Bread sticks, then cut the slices of Texas Toast into 1/2 inch wide strips prior to cooking.

NOTES : Any bread can be used for this recipe.  I like Texas Toast or other thick sliced bread because the bread doesn't get as soggy as thinner sliced breads do.
