The Cowboy’s Famous French Toast

Posted April 1, 2016 by Prairie Wife - 4 comments

First off let me just say that it took me over a month of nagging to finally get The Cowboy to agree to let me share this recipe. Not only was he reluctant to tell me his secret ingredient but, he’s pretty shy when it comes to being a part of the blog. As part of our mission statement we talk about giving credit where credit is due, and I felt like I just couldn’t claim this recipe as my own (even though The Cowboy gave me permission).

On weekdays the Cowkids alternate between a breakfast of cold cereal and fruit, and yogurt, fruit, and toast…let’s be honest…sometimes even that’s a challenge to get on the table! On the weekends The Cowboy likes to make a huge breakfast for us. He’s an amazing cook and makes everything from homemade biscuits and gravy to coffee cake. When he served us some French Toast a few months ago we all stood up and clapped. It was as good as the French Toast I’d had at 5 star brunch restaurants…really! When I finally wrangled the recipe out of him I was surprised at how easy it was. I can’t wait to hear what you guys think.

Serves: 6 Prep Time: 5 minutes Cooking Time:10-15 minutes

1 Loaf of White Texas Toast Bread
3 Eggs
1 cup milk
1/2 cup Vanilla Caramel coffee creamer (I’m sure any kind with caramel flavoring would work)
2tsp Cinnamon
1tsp Vanilla

  1. Heat a large nonstick skillet up to 250 degrees (or use a regular pan sprayed with non stick spray on your stove set to medium/high).
  2. Combine all the ingredients but the toast in a large bowl, whisk gently.
  3. Take a piece of bread and dip it into the above mixture until it is well coated.
  4. Place on skillet and turn after about 3-5 minutes or when it is cooked a deep golden brown, repeat for other side.
  5. Serve hot with butter and syrup or fresh fruit and whipped cream.

Do you have any weekend breakfast traditions?
