Bagels and Brunch

February 24, 2017

I get up late on Sunday’s because it’s really the only day I have to myself where I can sleep in late. The kids usually don’t bother me if they get up earlier so I know that I can sleep until at least 11. I am not a morning person so I live for Sunday’s. Last Sunday my kids wanted to go out to brunch and since I don’t crank my car on Sundays I decided to bring the brunch to them. I wasn’t able to go to the store to get challah bread which is what I normally use for baked french toast so I had to find a substitute…..I looked in the fridge and saw the bagels and I thought to myself…can I? Let’s try it out and see if it will work for french toast…..here is what you will need……

6 Bagels
A container of strawberries
8 large eggs
1¾ cups milk
¼ cup syrup
¼ cup of sugar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Tear apart your bagels and then cut up a few strawberries in it. I didn’t do a whole lot because my kids thought it was eewww to have cooked strawberries. Mix together the milk, syrup, eggs, sugar, vanilla extract and cinnamon in a large bowl and then pour over the bagels and strawberries.

Let it bake for about 45 min to an hour (depending on your oven) on 350 I didn’t cover mine but if you want you can cover it up

I poured regular syrup over mine and sprinkled with some white powdered sugar!

And that was Brunch on last Sunday! What do you fix for brunch around your home?

*note you can use any bread you want to do the above I just used what I had!

    My son loves French toast so that bagel creation was something he would really like. It is great that they get the protein from the eggs and antioxidants from the strawberries.
