Homemade French Toast Recipe for Kids

Everyone is our house loves a big breakfast…except me. I prefer to sleep in and to whip up. have a delightful lunch, long after the breakfast dishes have been done. (RIGHT?) But seriously, if I am waking up early, I am probably not in the mood to make breakfast.

My solution? Teach the kids to cook!

From pancakes to toast and eggs, kids can learn from a young age to cook their own breakfast.

One of Miss Manners’ favorite breakfasts to make is French toast. When she was younger, I purchased an electric griddle and gave her free reign in the kitchen. She’s since used it to cook pancakes, French toast, bacon and eggs. While it’s not something I would normally keep in my kitchen, it’s been well worth it for my own peace of mind.

No fire= less worries.

{Calm down, I DO still supervise her. This just allows her much more freedom and hands on learning!}

The great thing about French toast is that you can use that old crusty bread that you shoved to the back of your cabinets and forgot about. {Dude, just keep an eye out for the mold!} 😉 You can use white bread, wheat bread, Texas Toast or even hotdog or hamburger buns. Seriously, buns are my girls’ favorites!
