Don't you just love Saturday mornings when the sun shines in, coffee is hot and the kids slept well. These type of mornings call for something special to eat at the McD house! Normally the hubs is the chef on these mornings but instead I was craving to get into the kitchen after such a busy week.
If I had been able to, I would have had some delicious hot cinnamon rolls to offer but instead had to look to plan B. French toast. But not just the regular way. Nope- I decided to try something new. Cinnamon Roll French Toast! Here's what I did. Give it a try and tell me what you think.
In a small bowl mix the following ingredients.
1/4 cup old fashioned oats
3 tbsp grd flax seeds
2 tbsp brown sugar
2 tsp grd cinnamon
1/4 cup crushed pecans
Beat 4 eggs in a shallow bowl and add 2 tbsp milk.
Cut crust off of 6 slices of whole wheat bread and flatten with a mallet.
Once bread is thinned out dip all four sides into egg mixture and spread small amount of oat mixture over slice. Roll bread up into a loose roll and dip entire piece into egg. Make sure to let the bread soak in egg for about 15-30 seconds, this will help make the inside moist. Once wet, place in well buttered, oiled skillet and cook, rotating as sides get done.
P.S. Don't forget to save your bread edges for the ducks...or compost! My girls love visiting our neighborhood pond and feed the hundreds of ducks that beg to be fed.
