Cookie Cutter French Toast

French Toast is a favorite at our house for breakfast.
Seriously, why is French Toast so good?

And my kids love helping with anything in the kitchen.  Usually it's stirring the egg mixture for the French Toast {yes, I'm capitalizing the first letters in those words.  Because French Toast deserves it.  Because it's that good}.
So I thought it would be fun to let my kids cut shapes out of the bread first {who likes the crust anyways?  My kids don't!}.  And since it's fall and Halloween is right around the corner, we used our Halloween cookie cutters!

First make your egg mixture.  Here's how I make mine - it's super yummy:
Michelle's Perfect French Toast
2 eggs
Splash of milk (probably 2 Tablespoons-ish)
1/4 tsp cinnamon (I'm totally guesstimating that.  Just sprinkle it in until it looks like the amount you'd like)
Dash of nutmeg (around 1/8 tsp.  Again, guesstimating here)
1 tsp vanilla
4-6 slices of bread

Whisk all ingredients together in a shallow dish {I usually use a pie dish}.  Like I said, my kids love helping on this part.  Any kind of stirring is so exciting to them :)  Sometimes I'll add an extra egg and a little more milk if I run out of my egg mixture before I'm out of bread.  Just depends on the day and how many pieces of French Toast we want to eat.
Dip your bread in the mixture and turn so each side is submerged.  Then your bread is ready for the griddle!

But I'm getting ahead of myself.  You need to cut out your shapes first!  We had a cat, pumpkin, witch and bat.  All perfect for Halloween!  And, of course, the kids love this part, too!

Time to grill to perfection on your griddle {or fry pan, whatever you use}.

And this is the result you will get:

You can't beat that - a smiling face on a Saturday morning!

Forget breakfast--we have french toast for dinner at least twice a month! I've never thought to use our cookie cutters for it--how fun and festive. :)
