Hi all! Hope everyone is having a fantastic Wednesday! French toast is always my go-to breakfast item at cafes but when I make it at home, I try to make it semi healthier. Everything about it is just so delicious. I was able to use Charlie’s Butter in my recipe and it couldn’t have tasted better. This recipe takes no time at all and is the perfect meal for breakfast.
- 2 slices of bread
- 2 eggs
- Almond milk
- Charlie’s Butter
- Toast 2 slices of bread. I placed the toaster setting on 5.
- In a bowl, whisk 2 eggs and a dash of cinnamon.
- Add about 2 tablespoons of almond milk.
- Whisk together really well.
- On a large skillet, turn on the heat to medium high.
- Dip one slice of bread in the bowl of the egg mixture and turn over to coat the other side of the bread.
- Place on the skillet and let it cook for 2-3 minutes.
- Flip over to its other side and let it cook for another 2-3 minutes.
- Flip over again and spread some Charlie’s Butter. I used the cinnamon flavor.
- Flip over again and spread Charlie’s Butter again. Let the first side cook for 2 minutes.
- Flip and cook again for another 2 minutes.
- Repeat with the other slice of toast.
- Serve with maple syrup!
Charlie’s Butter is a collection of delectable artisan pasture-fed butters made from only the finest ingredients. It all starts with butter from a small herd of cows that graze on the lush California coastal grasses. Wholesome organic spices and herbs are then combined with the butter, culminating in an extraordinary flavor experience.
Charlie’s Butter is Grass-fed butter, also known as pasture butter, is made from the milk from cows that only feed on natural grass vice a grain-based diet. The milk of grass-fed cows is superior to that of grain fed cows because there is not the typically associated use of antibiotics and growth hormones.
Health benefits of grass-fed butter include: A naturally occurring fatty acid called Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA) and a balance of Omega 3 & 6 fatty acids. Compared to regular butter, grass-fed butter has less Omega-6 and more Omega-3, which is important because most people are already eating way too many Omega-6 fatty acids in their daily diets. Nutrient dense in vitamins such as A, D, E, K & K2. K2 is great for bone strength and is also beneficial in the bone development of children.
