Baguette French Toast with Fresh Berries

Yes, I know, berries are no longer in season so this post is kinda late, but I'm really trying to post more food posts! I made this breakfast for myself a while back on a lazy Saturday morning. I had half of a baguette that was rapidly drying out and some fresh berries chilling in the fridge that needed to be eaten fast. Combine the two together and what do you get? Baguette french toast with berries!

Sprinkle a little powdered sugar, butter with a little butter, add a little syrup and you are on your way to one fantastic breakfast. You ready to face the day yet?

Baguette French Toast with Fresh Berries

1/2 baguette, sliced in 1" thick slices
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 c. milk
1 tbsp sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
fresh mixed berries
powdered sugar
maple syrup

1. Beat together eggs, milk, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg until mixed well. Soak slices for 30 sec on each side.
2. Heat some butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add bread slices and cook until lightly browned, about 5 min. Flip over and brown for 5 more minutes. Serve with berries, a sprinkling of powdered sugar and a drizzle of maple syrup.
