French Toast with Peaches

Ah, yes, Secret Recipe Club...  Either watch The Roosevelts or write.  Since this is due at midnight, I shall write.  Yes, I waited until the last minute.  Time flew.  A trip to Seattle.  Lots of work at the office.  A whirlwind.  So, this month I was assigned Debbie Does Dinner Healthy.   After much deliberation, I'd settled on either the Kung Pao Chickpeas or the Smashed Chickpea and Avocado Sandwiches.  But, that wasn't to be.  I had nectarines that needed to be used up.  And, Debbie posted a great recipe for French toast with sautéed peaches.  I had to try it. 

What did we think?  Wonderful!!!  This recipe was not only a great way to use up some expiring fruit and get Connie to eat fruit (yes, he counts the servings of fruit he's given a week...) it was also a wonderful way to use fruit instead of syrup on French toast. 

French Toast with Peaches

2 eggs
1/2 cup milk (I used 2%)
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 T butter
3 to 4 fresh peaches, peeled & sliced
2T cup brown sugar
4 or 5 slices of bread 


Whisk together the eggs, milk, vanilla and cinnamon.  Melt the butter in a large skillet.  Dunk the bread in the milk mixture then put it in the skillet.  Flip it once to thoroughly brown both sides.  In a small skillet, sauté the peaches and brown sugar.  Serve the peaches over the French toast
