Lemon Ricotta French Toast with Homemade Cinnamon Bread






Homemade bread. This is something we haven't had at my house in a long time. I remember as a kid having it a lot, but then it just didn't happen much anymore. It gets eaten so much faster than a store loaf of bread, but isn't that just a compliment to it? So after see the bread machine, never actually using it before because it was my dad's fancy toy, I asked him how to use it. And it is like the simplest thing ever! I wish I would have asked earlier. Put the ingredients in the bread pan, put pan in machine, press start. literally thats it. No fear, bread machines are your friend!

So I had some ricotta left over from the galette and still a pile of free lemons, so french toast it was! I think I fir Ihop st heard of stuffed french toast from something really gross like an commercial, and probably at the time went there to have it. Anyways, this recipe is so much better than anything you can get at a Ihop. Sweetened ricotta, zesty lemons, and fresh bread. Breakfast food is good.









Love my recipe cards, but gotta use a different format every now and then.


Recipe for Bread from that booklet the bread machine came with :)

Yum, lemon French Toast! I also tried out this recipe that uses orange flavors – it turned out great (especially after a few mimosas!). Enjoy!
