At every meal I address the question “How can we add more fruits and vegetables to this meal!” The answers obviously get creative. Sometimes they turn out amazing, and sometimes it’s a total fail.
So, with a box full of mini-peaches, given to us by my mom, that question was obviously answered with peaches.
My family got home from church yesterday and of course they were “Starving”. With plenty of peaches on hand, coupled with an abundance of eggs and bread, we decided to have French Toast. The French Toast turned out delicious, and it was another way we can add more fruit to our day. And who doesn’t love breakfast for dinner, right?
Here is our final recipe:
10 slices whole wheat bread
2 tsp cinnamon
2 TBL Peach juice (we juiced one of our boxes of peaches, so it was easy)
2 TBL Milk
2 tsp vanilla
3 lbs peaches
1 cup plain Greek Yogurt
Break eggs into a shallow dish and add cinnamon, peach juice, Milk, and vanilla. Mix thoroughly.
Soak each slice of bread in egg mixture on both sides.
Cook soaked bread in a hot skillet until egg is no longer runny.
Combine peaches and yogurt and use to top French Toast, or use as a dip.
I love recipes like this because it can be modified seasonally. As soon as Apples are at peak season, we can make Apple Pie French Toast !
