French Toast in a Mug

Oh how I love anything made in the microwave.  
They're quick and simple recipes...you don't have to share...and you don't have big leftovers sitting around to tempt you. 

Tickled to find this quick breakfast dish that I easily 'lightened' by using low carb bread, 1% milk and sugar free syrup. You could always substitute two egg whites for the egg if needed. 

I bet your kids will love it too!



FRENCH TOAST IN A MUG

1 Tb. butter 
1/2 tsp. sugar
(sub with agave or stevia if needed)
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 c. milk
1 egg, beaten
1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
2 slices bread, torn into bite sized pieces
syrup or honey, optional

Melt butter in bottom of large microwavable mug..about 25 seconds in microwave. Swirl butter around sides of mug.  Add in sugar/cinnamon to mug and stir. Add milk, being sure butter has cooled as not to cook the egg. Stir in egg and vanilla, then add bread pieces; stir until well coated. 

Microwave on high for at least a minute, checking after 1 minute and 15 seconds. (It may looked cooked on the top but the bottom needs to cook through too.) Normal cooking time is about 90 seconds, but different 'strokes' for different microwaves you know. 

Top with syrup or honey if desired, but it's good like it is.
