Breakfast on a stick

I do not need a photo to prove my kids were head over heels for this one!  If me and the kids had our way, we'd be eating breakfast food morning, noon, and night.  And at the top of our list would be French Toast!  This time, we skewered (with chop sticks) the French toast with blackberries.  Then I made a blackberry syrup- more like a sauce.  This was a fun way to eat French toast, because we could dip the Kabob into the sauce, rather than pouring it over our plates.

So, for the French toast, we use:

  • Eggs (usually one egg per slice of bread)
  • Milk, just a splash
  • Vanilla extract
  • Cinnamon

For the blackberry sauce. I used 1 cup of frozen blackberries.  Placed in a pot and simmered until runny and warm.  MMMM. this was really good!

I couldn't decide what to say about why this meal is healthy.  There is the

  • Cinnamon 
  • The whole wheat bread
  • The eggs (many posts about the healthfulness of these beauties)
  • The berries (hmm, couldn't find a post about blackberries...)

So, this is why Blackberries should be a part of your kids diet:

  • Vitamin C... 1 cup has 50% of your daily needs.
  • Blackberries have an antioxidant (ellagic acid) that helps protect skin from sun damage.  (good if you are like me and forget to bring sunscreen)
  • blackberries are rich in antioxidants (the darker the fruit the better) and have shown to reduce inflammation, and fight free radicals!
  • Your kids should eat them because they are DELICIOUS!!

Right now blackberries are in season. We just picked up a case, 12 little containers, for $8.00!

Cutters we used for these kabobs:

  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

Mix all ingredients together except the bread.  Soak both sides of bread in egg mixture.  Heat skillet.  Cook bread on hot skillet until both sides no longer show wet eggs.   Top with real maple syrup, fruit, or yogurt.

Blackberry sauce

  • 1 cup blackberries

Heat over low/medium heat in a sauce pan until it begins to breakdown like sauce and thicken.

I love the french toast with blackberries on a stick idea. We'll have to try that. Where did you find the blackberries on sale?

It was last week at Kohlers! Already gone :( I should have called you!!

What a great idea! I'm sure kids LOVE that!

Fun!! And the sauce is so easy (why didn't I think of that?!) I was buying 100% pure maple syrup, but that has become very expensive. Thanks for the ideas.

My kids love to eat things with toothpicks. If a plate gets pushed away I just add toothpicks and it is like I have given them a different meal. I can't imagine how excited they would be to have everything on one stick and to be able to dip it into something- that's perfect.

We are totally going to have that tomorrow!
