Donut French Toast

October 31, 2013

Do you ever have one of those mornings where something fun to make just comes to mind? 

That was Saturday for me, I woke up and immediately thought Donut French Toast. 

We happened to have a bunch of leftover donuts from the day before when it was my turn to bring them to work. While I'm fine with leftover donuts, I knew they'd just go to waste... hence the stale donut still sitting in the box on the counter today.

I'm all about revamping something, and stale bread is always the best food item to revamp. 
So that's how we ended up here, my Mom's super simple french toast recipe, on a donut. 
You can thank me later.

Donut French Toast

serves 4
4 glazed donuts
1/2 cup milk (I had almond on hand)
1 egg
a few dashes of cinnamon
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Cooking Spray

Heat a large skillet over med to med-high heat (I adjust it as I go). Slice donuts down the center so that you have 8 halves. Whisk remaining ingredients (minus cooking spray) together in a pie plate. When the skillet is hot, spray with cooking spray, dunk donut halves in the milk and egg mixture (coating each side well) and place in the skillet. Cooking until each side is golden brown, but still soft in the center.

**If you're making this french toast recipe without donuts, add in 3-4 tbsp of sugar. I left the sugar out on this for obvious reasons, these donuts had enough sugar already.
