What is your favorite food to have for breakfast? I personally love me some fluffy banana pancakes with orange freshly squeezed juice and fruits on the side. Though this weekend I needed to try something different, easy and definitely delicious at the same time.

I have to admit that I am one of those few foodies who has a “cook book” made from scratch. I love to try out new recipes, whenever I go out, I sometimes speak with the chef on the side just to get a quick knowledge of a certain recipe of a dish I just had, as I scribble down ingredients of his work and ask for advice on an alternative ingredient that I can definitely get locally. This is a habit I picked up and am yet to see where it takes me. Sometimes, I just borrow ideas from {Ramsey Gordon} the British cook, love his work, or the internet.

-1 egg

-4 slices of bread

-1 tsp of vanilla extract

  1. Stuck your 4 slices of {whichever bread} together, thinly cut out the side crust. Cut the bread into three thick stripes.

FYI: The bread needs to be a day old or in the fridge over night for it to be firm enough to be cooked well without breaking.

2.  Beat the egg first, then add in the sugar, mix well. Add in the vanilla and cinnamon, then combine well.

5. Serve while still hot. This is where you add in any toppings from : fruits, maple syrup, powdered sugar or chocolate syrup.

Final outcome. 

Once the bread sticks are ready, they get crunchy in a good way. You can totally taste vanilla, cinnamon and a distinctively the sugar.

To add color and just balance this breakfast dish, I added in some skinless hot-dogs, then sprinkled in chocolate syrup on the bread sticks.

I thought this would be fun to add in what I had for an early dinner – yesterday.

French fries, with skinless hot-dogs and fried beans.
