French Toast by the Loaf!

For those of you that don’t know, we have lots of chickens.  So many its hard to count but I think we have 15 hens and 2 roosters.  You can read about chicken posts here

Our little chickens are quiet the egg factory (yeah our girls have a bad reputation for putting out!).  Tuesday Night we had almost 5 dozen eggs in our fridge.   David took 4 dozen to work to sell.  I eat 3 eggs each morning (1 whole egg and 2 egg whites) so that left me with 9 eggs to use until that afternoons eggs collections.

This and last week Price chopper has had B1G1 Free bread.  I really didn't need another loaf of bread but I have said it before my kids love breakfast.   I hate the options available for a busy weekday morning, frozen processed waffles, french toast stick, sugar laced cereal and what is in a pop tart?

Wednesday Morning the puppy had me up at 430, and the kids were up not to long after that.  So mixing my 9 remaining eggs with some milk, cinnamon and homemade vanilla I heated up the griddle:


Looks good right!  Yeah I cooked a whole loaf of it.  Tyler ate 4 pieces and then went to Jodi’s and ate more food.  While I was cooking these I was also grilling my chicken for the second half of the week.  Which is what Ms.Emma wanted to eat.  What a silly girl.

I took my remaining French toast and wrapped 3-4 pieces in wax paper and then in a zip lock bag. Now during the week I can pull out one wax paper group.  I just put them in the toaster for 2 cycles and enjoy. You can do the same thing with waffles and pancakes. 

Have left over rolls from a party? check this bad ass idea out

Remember how I said we were out of eggs till the afternoon collection?  Here’s the results of that egg collections:


Emma kind of missed the counter on deliver!!  Only one out of 12 made it.
