French Toast – No milk? No problem.

July 16, 2011 at 10:55 am 2 comments

My usual weekday breakfast consists of yogurt and granola with maybe some fruit, honey, agave or maple syrup. On weekends, when I have a little more time, I like to branch out into the world of eggs and other things that require cooking. This morning I woke up and decided it was time to make some French Toast.

One problem – no milk. We rarely use milk in our house – though other dairy products like half and half, cheese and ice cream are abundant – so this dilemma has come up before. Usually it involves a craving for a milkshake. This morning, however, I got two things in my head, 1) I was going to have French Toast for breakfast and 2) I was not going to go to the store to get milk. Internet search engine, here we come.

The solution I found was easy enough. Substitute the milk with yogurt and if you need to, add a little water. The recipe I ended up making was Honey Butter Yogurt French Toast.

For this recipe, you will need:

2 eggs, slightly beaten
½ c of plain or vanilla yogurt
2 Tbsp honey
1/4 tsp of cinnamon
4 slices of bread (fresh or slightly stale)
4 Tbsp softened butter

The video with the recipe walks you through the directions, but it pretty closely mirrors making regular French Toast.

MY NOTES: I used plain yogurt, so I added a small bit of vanilla extract. At the prompting of several other recipes, I included about a tablespoon of water as well. The result, a delightfully tangy and sweet breakfast. The honey butter was an excellent and simple topping. A dollop of yogurt and dash of cinnamon, superb.

    […] was removing the bacon, but I also had to improvise on the milk. As I mentioned in my post about French Toast a few weeks ago, we rarely have milk in our house, so milk alternatives require some creativity. […]
