Although I don’t really eat breakfast, I LOVE breakfast food! I just like it at dinner time instead. 😉 On the other hand, my husband loves fixing a nice breakfast like eggs or French toast on his day off.
Do you remember when I posted about our grocery budget? (Click here if you haven’t read that already) When we got married I was on a mission to learn cheap recipes for two and to not let food go to waste!
So when I looked at the heel of a loaf of bread, I tried to figure out how to not waste them! Well, I could just eat them… But I’m not a crust eating kind of gal. 😉 Instead, every time we finished a loaf of bread I’d save the heels and add them to my stash in the freezer.
Whenever it added up to enough French toast for both is us, I’d pull it out and let it thaw and get stale enough for the next day. Stale bread makes the best French toast!
I have found the PERFECT French toast recipe! Seriously, click that link! It’s easy, cheap and soooo delicious. I really didn’t even notice it was the heels of the bread when I made it and I am so picky about crust! My husband is picky about his French toast, too and he loves it!
I also topped it off with my great-grandfather’s homemade syrup recipe! (Edited a little by my mom 😊) This recipe is declicious and SO CHEAP. Do you have kids that like to thoroughly drown their pancakes before eating them? Try this recipe! It is really very easy to make.
- 2 cups sugar
- 1 cup water
- 1 teaspoon maple flavoring
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
Combine sugar and water together in a saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat stirring occasionally. When it is boiling, decrease temperature to medium and let boil for three minutes without stirring. Remove from heat and stir in extracts.
And voila! A breakfast that cost barely anything and is super delicious!!
