This French Toast Frittata breakfast recipe originally came from my reader friend, Anna, thanks Anna! It is one of our “old stand-bys” for busy mornings, so I decided to post the recipe instead of leaving it buried in my healthy breakfast ideas post.
Here’s why it’s a family favorite for a healthy breakfast:
5. You can use up the ends of the bread loaves without anyone knowing or complaining. (We use my homemade soaked bread recipe or buy fermented bread from a local baker, both of these are MUCH easier to digest than a typical loaf of whole grain bread.)
4. Most kids don’t need to be mindful of their carbohydrate intake. Clarification: Most kids don’t need to worry so much about their grain intake. (As long as they’re eating whole grains prepared correctly and with plenty of healthy fats.)
3. These ingredients are super nourishing!
2. It takes only a few minutes to make for a FAST breakfast. (More breakfast ideas.) It’s so easy, even our 11 year old can make his own. (With us close by of course.)
1. If you have kids who won’t eat eggs, you can slip extra yolks in for more nutrition and they’ll never know!
French Toast Frittata
Whip together the following:
- 1 egg + 1 yolk (or more yolks if you want more nutrition – I sometimes use 3 yolks per one piece of bread)
- 2 Tablespoons of cream (or more, this isn’t exact)
- A dash of sea salt
- A few dashes of cinnamon
- A 1/4 t. of vanilla, optional
Stir in 1-2 pieces of bread, and tear it into small pieces as you drop it in. As I said above, I use up the ends of the loaves and no one knows!
Fry until golden on both sides. I use bacon grease (because it’s free) and a cast iron pan. Serve with plenty of butter on top (pastured butter if possible, raw is even better), real maple syrup and a glass of raw milk. This is when I give the kids their “blue bottle medicine” (cod liver oil) because I love serving it with pastured butter, knowing that it makes the CLO even more beneficial (based on the teachings of Weston A. Price).
Let me know what you think! And tell us, what is YOUR favorite breakfast recipe for you or the kids?
