It is already Saturday. I had intended to post more this week, but...
I get to spend the afternoons with my grandsons three days a week. I love watching them play, and playing with them.
Lunch can be a pain. I get bored with "mac n cheese, ramen noodles and pnut butter sandwiches", but they are both picky. I love finding something new to feed them.
This recipe combines a couple of favourites-with a twist. This "recipe" is from the DESERET NEWS by J.M. Hirsch. This recipe is simple and uses what I already have.
PEANUT BUTTER & JAM FRENCH TOAST (Way too easy)
Make your pnut butter and jam/jelly sandwiches. Use a sandwich cutter to make them cute. (I used the train from WILLIAMS-SONOMA. Thanks Debbie. And Peggy :)
Dip sandwiches into french toast egg mix. (I used 3 eggs, 2 cups of milk, a drop of vanilla and a few twists of fresh ground cinnamon. Remind me to tell you more about the cinnamon later. You can also whisk in a tablespoon or 2 of BISQUICK.)
Dip both sides of each sandwich in the batter and cook on both sides in a sprayed or buttered skillet. Yea, french toast.
The boys really liked this. Layne had me make another one for him. It's a comfort food. With a twist.
Then I tried a few other ideas. I cooked a couple in the waffle iron. This worked better than stove top, because it sealed the sandwiches. But the insides leaked out leaving a slow burning mess.
I still had bread and batter, so I dipped bread just in the batter and then cooked it in the waffle iron. Worked great. BUT WHY?
Layne had lots of fun watching/helping me make this.
