Every Monday night a group of Weeblies snuggles up together (OK OK, there's no actual snuggling, that's just my dream world) to watch a dvr'd episode of Game of Thrones together in our movie room downstairs. To help entice folks to stay late (in case all the Medieval violence and nudity isn't enough) I try and either order food in or, time permitting, whip up a little dinner treat myself.
This week I was super craving breakfast for dinner and decided to treat the GOT crew to stacks of batter dipped French toast with Nutella, strawberries, powdered sugar and pure maple syrup, bacon and eggs. With so much sweetness happening on the French toast I felt a bit like Buddy the Elf ("Is there sugar in syrup? Then YES!") creating a mound of not-so-healthy, but it turned out deliciously and was a huge hit with the gang.
2 cups of Bisquick
1 1/4 cup of milk
2 teaspoons cinnamon
2 teaspoons vanilla
10 slices of bread (I used thick, fresh, French loaf)
Mix batter, dip in bread, lay on buttered up griddle for 1-2 minutes on each side (or until golden brown). Slather on Nutella, pop in some fresh strawberries, sprinkle with powdered sugar and hug with some pure maple syrup. You might be thinking the syrup is totally unnecessary, but...you would be wrong. It really adds the final touch of yummo!
love and light,
