The Very Best Homemade

          Breakfast

Homemade French Toast, Cheese Omelet and Orange Juice

French Toast For One

2 large slices hearty sandwich bread                          STEP #1 Using a toaster, toast the bread on the lowest

1/2 cup milk                                                                            setting. Toast the bread until it feels dried out.

1 tablespoon butter                                                                It does not have to be brown.

(some for the batter and some for the pan)             STEP #2 Place the 1 cup of milk and 1 /2 of the tablespoon

1 large egg-beaten                                                                  of butter in a small microwave safe bowl. Heat

1 tablespoon brown sugar                                                      until the butter is melted, about 30 seconds.

1 teaspoon vanilla extract                                          STEP #3 Add the beaten egg, brown sugar, vanilla,

1/8 teaspoon cinnamon                                                            cinnamon and salt to the milk mixture. Use a

Pinch of salt                                                                            whisk and beat this up to combine. Pour this

Mixture into a shallow pan, like a pie plate.

Step #4 Soak the bread slice in the milk mixture until

It is wet but not falling apart, about 20 seconds.

Flip the bread over using a spatula and soak for

Another 20 seconds.

STEP #5 Melt the remaining piece of butter in a nonstick

Skillet. Use a spatula to transfer the bread slices

And cook until golden brown, cook both sides.

Start With The Right Bread.

Drying out the bread in the toaster allows

it to soak up the egg mixture. Don’t skip the step, you want the bread

to be dry and firm but not really browned

 

 

Cheese Omelet For One

The secret to a nice omelet is the pan. It should be big-10 inch

nonstick skillet and you will need a rubber spatula.

 

2 large eggs                                                  STEP #1 In a medium bowl, whisk eggs, salt and pepper.

Pinch of salt                                                 STEP #2 In a 10 inch skillet, melt butter over medium

Pinch of pepper                                                          heat, swirling the pan to evenly coat skillet

1 tablespoon butter                                  STEP #3 Add eggs to the skillet and stir gently with

Cheddar cheese                                                         rubber spatula until the eggs begin to set,

Optional-bacon bits, diced onion,                       about 10 seconds.

Mushrooms                                                 STEP #4 Use the spatula to gently pull and lift cooked

                                                                      eggs into the center of skillet, tilt and swirl

                                                                                    skillet so uncooked eggs run to the cleared

edges of the skillet. Cook until egg

on top is mostly set but still moist-

1-2 minutes.

STEP #5 Turn off the heat. Sprinkle omelet with cheese

And let it melt about 20 seconds. Use the rubber

                                                                   Spatula To carefully fold the omelet in half and

And slide it onto a plate.

Facts About Orange Juice…It’s better to eat an orange than to drink orange juice. Why? Because the juice has no fiber unless it is added back in processing.

Orange Juice is high in Vitamin C which helps your immune system-that means it fights colds.

Enriched or Fortified— What’s the difference?

Enriching foods means nutrients are added back that were taken out during processing. For example, flour is enriched because niacin, riboflavin, folic acid, thiamine, and iron are added back. These micronutrients are found naturally in wheat. Fortifying foods means adding nutrients that were never there. Orange juice is sold with added calcium and Vitamin D. Milk has Vitamins A & D added.
