Breakfast With The Witches - Cinnamon Stuffed French Toast

Halloween fun is almost done!
Our family all hopped on our brooms and flew over to
Gardner Village to join the witches for
a fun, song and dance filled breakfast.

Now come join us while we make breakfast.

This is a family photo we took at Breakfast With The Witches.
(The witch 2nd from the right doesn't belong to us,
don't know where she came from!)

Breakfast is a big deal at Purple Chocolat Home
for weekends and holidays,
but I am not the resident chef for breakfast.

Meet our scary cook.
This spooky character is my hubby.  He
specializes in breakfast any time of year.
Stuffed French Toast is one of his specialties.

He has been either the Scout Master or the
Young Men's President in our church for
about 20 years and he loves to teach the
young men how to cook, usually breakfast
foods or dutch oven foods.

When making the sandwich for the french toast
 this time of year, just be careful nothing crawls in!

Stuffed French Toast Recipe

1 loaf good quality bread
4  eggs
1/2 C. milk
1 T. sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/4 tsp. cinnamon

filling ingredients:
vanilla frosting
Using 2 slices of bread, make a sandwich with
the frosting and a dusting of cinnamon.

Lightly beat the eggs, add milk, sugar, vanilla and
cinnamon.  Dip the sandwich into the egg mix.
Toast on a buttered griddle until lightly brown
on both sides.  The filling should be all melted
inside.  Top with whipped cream and syrup.

"French toast, Madame?"

"Of course darling. 
Would you top it with
a little whipped cream and bananas?"

"My compliments to the chef.  Fabulous!"

Sorry, he was just a little too friendly for Halloween!

We really do get scarier every year, and bigger too.
Happy Halloween
from our family to yours.

Fly on over to Foodie Friday
for more food fun. Michael Lee West always
has lots of foodie goodies at her blog party.

Beverly at Pink Saturday  is hosting any color
post celebrate Halloween.  Fly on over there too. 

Our last flight is to The Tablescaper for

Beaulah and all her witch friends want to
thank you for spending all of October with her.


Chocolat - French for Chocolate. I adored chocolate from a young age when I had to sneak in the cupboard to find where my mother had hidden the Nestle's Chocolate Chips. Having read about the famous chocolat shoppes in Paris, when I finally got there I was determined to try a chocolate from every Paris shoppe. I invite you to share my adventures in creating, in travel, and in life.
