French Toast Bites
French Toast Bites
For the past 4 years we have hosted Christmas dinner at our house. My family comes early Christmas morning and the house is instantly filled with laughter as we sip our coffee and open gifts . Normally, for breakfast, we just indulge in left over cookies and pie from the previous nights Christmas eve party. This is remarkably satisfying but I have always wanted to make Christmas breakfast for everyone to enjoy. Something they would look forward to Christmas morning. I want the house to smell like Christmas when they walk in.
Keep it Simple
Whatever I choose to make has to be something quick and easy considering I also have to prepare my turkey for Christmas Dinner. Thankfully, I found this recipe for cinnamon toast balls and have slightly adapted it into what I like to call French toast Bites. French toast bites are baked and it frees up my stove top so there is no need to hover over the stove watching them. Let’s face it, Christmas is for spending time with family not in front of a hot stove.
