If you haven’t been able to tell yet, family traditions and memory making is very important to me! Anything I can do to make a memory with my daughter and husband, I am all for it! One of my favorite weekly memory-making traditions is Sunday family breakfast. This is another family tradition I grew up with. My mom always made a big Sunday breakfast we all enjoyed together. She still does this when we visit for the weekend. I have continued this with my little family. Any weekend we are home (which seems few and far between lately!), I am sure to make a breakfast we can all enjoy together. Sometimes I have a lot of time and I can make an elaborate breakfast, but sometimes I am short on time and I make a yummy and quick breakfast. This recipe fills that bill!
- 3 eggs
- 2 T. brown sugar
- 3/4 cup milk
- 1 t. pumpkin pie spice
- 1 t. vanilla extract
- 3 T. butter, melted
- pinch of salt
- 8 slices cinnamon raisin bread (I use Pepperidge Farm brand)
Preheat waffle maker to medium heat, or to whatever doneness you like your waffles.
Melt butter in the microwave or in a small saucepan.
In a shallow baking dish, whisk together the eggs, milk, brown sugar, vanilla, and pumpkin pie spice.
Lay four slices of bread into the mixture ad let it soak for 10-15 seconds on each side.
While bread slices are soaking, brush waffle maker with butter. Then lay soaked slices of bread on the waffle maker and close the lid. Cook according to the manufacture’s directions.
Repeat with the remaining 4 slices of bread
Serve hot with maple syrup!
You can use any type of bread for this! We just happen to love all the different varieties of Pepperidge Farm breads.
This is such a super quick meal, you can even enjoy it on a weekday! Be sure to let the excess drip off the bread before putting them in the waffle maker so that you don’t get too much extra egg in the maker or you will have scrambled egg edges!
