French Toast for One

I wasn't feeling my usual breakfast of eggs, Greek yogurt or a green monster protein smoothie post workout this morning. No way. Something more indulgent just sounded better. A loaf of fresh baked bread from my mom is sitting on my counter and a delicious idea came to mind. With just a few ingredients, I whipped up a single serving of French Toast that hit the spot! The frozen wild blueberries from Trader Joe's made a perfect topping when heated up in the microwave for 30 seconds.

This is a great (and easy) way to start your day on a sweeter note! So easy. So good.

French Toast for One

1 thick slice of good bread
1 egg
splash of unsweetened vanilla almond milk 
a few shakes of cinnamon
a few shakes of nutmeg
tiny slice of unsalted butter
fruit, to top

Cut slice of bread diagonally. Whisk together egg, almond milk, cinnamon and nutmeg. Pour mixture onto a plate. Soak each triangle for about 2 minutes on each side, letting all of the goodness in. 

In a large, nonstick pan, melt a tiny bit of unsalted butter on medium heat. Place soaked bread in the pan and cook for about 3-4 minutes on each side, until it's nice a toasted. Serve with fruit, real maple syrup, powdered sugar and whatever else your heart desires.
