  • When I think of Christmas day, I think of twinkling lights, presents under the tree, and Santa Claus, of course! But when I think back on waking up on snowy Christmas mornings as a child at mom and dad’s house…I remember breakfast.

    My family goes all out for breakfast on Christmas morning, but we keep the cooking to a minimum. (Don’t be so surprised—it is actually possible.) It’s a tradition that has carried on for years in my family and has even slipped into my own little family’s tradition now that I’m married.

    One of our Christmas morning staples is Apple Cinnamon French Toast with Vanilla Syrup. It’s a delicious, gourmet breakfast with practically no hassle, which makes it perfect for Christmas morning. This meal is fantastic! Just put it together the night before, leave it in the fridge, and slip it in the oven while you open Christmas presents and enjoy your other holiday traditions. By the time you’re ready to eat, it will be ready for you to dive in.

    Christmas Cinnamon Apple French Toast from Food Storage

     

    Apple Cinnamon French Toast

    Serves 8-10

    1 loaf French bread, sliced in 1 ½” slices

    6 eggs  or 12 tbsp. Provident Pantry Egg Powder

    ½ C reconstituted instant milk

    ½ C Provident Pantry White Sugar

    1 T reconstituted Vanilla Powder

    6 medium apples, peeled & sliced (or use MyChoice Cinnamon Apple Slices instead of adding cinnamon

    1 ½ tsp MyChoice Cinnamon

    ½ tsp ground nutmeg

    3 T Provident Pantry Brown Sugar

    1. The night before serving, coat a 9x13 pan with cooking spray. Layer bread slices on the bottom of the pan.
    2. Combine eggs, milk, sugar, & vanilla in a large bowl; beat well & pour over bread slices.
    3. Place apple slices on top of bread. Sprinkle apples w/cinnamon, nutmeg & brown sugar.
    4. Cover w/foil & refrigerate overnight. In the morning, preheat oven to 350. Bake covered about 50 minutes; remove foil & bake 10 more minutes.

     

     

    Vanilla Syrup

    You can’t have “the most amazing French Toast” without a delicious syrup to match. We always make a special batch of Vanilla Syrup specifically for this breakfast. (Honestly, we make two batches because we eat so much of it!)

    2 cups Provident Pantry White Sugar

    1 cup reconstituted MyChoice Butter Powder

    1 cup reconstituted MyChoice Buttermilk Powder

     

    Bring to a boil and add:

    2 T Karo Syrup

    1 tsp MyChoice Baking Soda

    1 tsp Vanilla Powder

     

    Mmm, just talking about these squares of gooey, sweet goodness are making my mouth water . . . maybe I won’t wait ‘til Christmas morning this year. Enjoy!

    Provident Pantry Shredded Hash Brown Potatoes and Buttermilk Pancake Mix, and Yoders Bacon will help you make a quick and delicious breakfast anytime.

    These hash browns are easy to rehydrate and cook with. Fry them up to serve with eggs or to include in a breakfast skillet, any potato casserole, or in patties.

    Buttermilk Pancake Mix mixes with water for a griddle-ready batter to make a yummy breakfast entree now or in an emergency. (Add reconstituted freeze dried berries or other fruit dices for a great twist on a classic American favorite.)

    Yoders canned bacon is pre-cooked, and ready to eat, and includes approximately 50 slices per can. It makes a welcome addition to breakfast, BLT’s, or any dish  that calls for good, smoky bacon. Just heat in a pan or microwave to the desired crispness, blot any excess fat with a paper towel, and serve. It’s great for camping, everyday breakfasts, or as a food storage item. The manufacturer guarantees a shelf life (unrefrigerated) for 2 years, but if kept in a cool, dry place, it can last longer—assuming you can resist the temptation! This gift has a total value of $33.79.
