We are some French toast lovin' fools over here at the Hedgie house. But wouldn't it be nice to sneak even more veggies into our breakfast?! Well, here you go. This is such an easy recipe, and you will LOVE it! I got the idea from here but changed it up a bit. I love it, too, because it's another way to eat carrots besides the usual sticks!
Carrot French Toast
3 carrots shredded
6 slices whole wheat bread
4 large eggs
1/2 cup fat-free milk
1 tsp vanilla (optional)
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground cloves
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
Pre-heat your griddle or large skillet to medium-low.
In a wide, shallow bowl beat together eggs, milk, and vanilla. In another wide, shallow bowl mix together the shredded carrots and spices.
The inside should be moist and soft while the outside is slightly crisp and golden brown.
Toppings can be as simple or extravagant as you want - have fun with it! Here are some options that I enjoy (usually several at a time):
unsweetened shredded coconut
You get the idea. ;) I really hope you try this; it's delicious! Both of my very picky boys asked for seconds. Let me know if you try it and how you like it! Veg it up, yo!
