Delicious... French Toast and Peaches $5.18
Yum... that's all I've got!
1 loaf bread (HM $1.50, store bought $1.79)
9 eggs $1.15
1 cup whole milk $0.13
2 tsp cinnamon $0.10
dash orange extract ($1.00 for 2 ounce bottle) $0.05
1 lb frozen peach slices $1.00
1/2 cup honey, agave or rapadura (or water with 1 Tbs stevia) $1.00
Butter (if desired) .25
Combine frozen peaches and sweetener in a saucepan. Cook over medium heat until hot, sweet and juicy. Set aside.
Whisk your eggs, milk, orange extract and cinnamon in a 9x9 inch baking dish (easy for dipping) or a bowl if you prefer the pour over/bake method.
I prefer to dip the bread and cook on a hot, buttered griddle. Then top with butter and sweet peach sauce.
Another option is to place a layer of bread in a baking dish, pour the sweet fruit mixture over, add another layer of bread and cover with egg/milk mixture. Then bake at 350 for 40-50 minutes.
We added sliced bananas to the meal since it was a lunch to round out our nutrition guidelines. 1 egg is a protein serving... so we have protein, grain, 2 fruits and served with a glass of milk finishes things off!
To ensure one protein serving per child, you can do the dip and pour method. Mix each egg with about a TBS of whole milk, dash of cinnamon and drizzle of orange extract. Dip one side of the bread into the batter, put on buttered griddle... then pour remaining egg mixture over the bread slice.
