Warm Maple and Raisins French Toast

Make it a Perfect Breakfast or Lunch!

French toast, also known as eggy bread or gypsy toast, is a dish of bread soaked in beaten eggs and then fried.

When French toast is served as a sweet dish, milk, sugar, vanilla or cinnamon are also commonly added before pan-frying, and then it may be topped with sugar (often powdered sugar), butter, fruit, or syrup. When it is a savory dish, it is generally fried with a pinch of salt, and can then be served with a sauce such as ketchup or mayonnaise.

Warm Maple and Raisins French Toast

Warm Maple and Raisins French Toast


2 tablespoons sunflower oil

2 large eggs

1 cup milk

1 tablespoon sugar

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

10 slices of bread (makes 5 servings, 2 slices per serving)

1/2 cup raisins (for serving)

Maple Syrup (for serving)


In a large bowl whisk eggs with sugar and vanilla extract. After the eggs are well beaten add in milk. Whisk until well combined.

In a 10 inch or 12 inch skillet, add 1 tablespoon sunflower oil and heat it over medium heat. Dip bread in egg mixture. Fry slices until golden brown, then flip to cook the other side.

Depending on your skillet and bread slices you may have 2 batches. After the first batch is done, lower the heat and add remaining tablespoon of oil and repeat the process by dipping the bread in egg and frying it until golden brown on both sides. Divide French Toast in serving plates.

In a small saucepan heat maple syrup and raisins over low heat. You don’t want the syrup to bubble, but rather get warm and less thick. When heated pour the syrup and raisins over the French Toast and enjoy right away with milk, coffee or drink of choice.

Like mentioned above, this recipe makes 5 servings (2 slices per serving).

A crêpe or crepe is a type of very thin pancake, usually made from wheat flour or buckwheat flour. The word is of French origin, deriving from the Latin crispa, meaning “curled”. While crepes are often associated with Brittany, a region in the northwest of France, their consumption is widespread in France and Quebec. Crepes are served with a variety of fillings, from the most simple with only sugar to flambéed crêpes Suzette or elaborate savory galettes.

Simple Veggie Scrambled Egg for One

Simple Breakfast or Lunch Idea

This recipe is so simple and very nutritious. Plus kids love it because of the yummy and colorful veggies.

Simple Veggie Scrambled Egg for One

Simple Veggie Scrambled Egg for One


1 teaspoon olive oil

1 large egg

1 baby carrot, grated

1/4 red bell pepper, chopped in bite size pieces

1/4 green bell pepper, chopped in bite size pieces

1/2 small zucchini, cut in half circles (peel if desired)

Salt and pepper to taste


Wash, dry, grate and cut your veggies. In a small skillet heat olive oil over medium/high heat. Add in peppers, carrot and zucchini. Saute veggies for a few minutes, until they start to soften and brown. Do not overcook them, rather leave them with some crunchiness.

In a small bowl whisk egg with salt and pepper. Add over veggies and scramble, making sure the egg distributes evenly over the veggies.

This makes one serving, or you could divide it in two for small kids if served with toast or yogurt on the side. If you want to add more eggs you can, just add additional calories (check on the egg carton – the one in this recipe has 70 calories) to the nutritional facts.
