Welcome to Simple Fare, Fairly Simple. This is a place for me to post recipes of all kinds...along with other miscellaneous fodder from my so-called life here in the south. Who knows what you will find here. Could be anything from my husband...known as IT Guy...to my kids and beautiful grandbabies that are growing up way too fast right before my eyes. But...mostly this will be a place for food. I hope you'll see something you like and if you decide to try something from the list...leave me a comment and let me know!

My mom's actually the one who gave me the idea for this recipe. You know...moms are so smart! This was a great idea! English muffins made into French toast. How very European. Okay...well, maybe not...but they WERE fun!

English Muffin French Toast 
with Very Berry Sauce

4 - 6 English Muffins
4 eggs
3/4 cup milk
1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 teaspoon cinnamon

In a 9 x 13 inch pan, beat the eggs with the rest of the ingredients.

Split the muffins and place them cut-side down into the egg mixture. You will probably have to crowd them in the pan.

Let the muffins soak for 30 minutes.

Flip the muffins over and allow to soak for 15 minutes.

Heat a griddle or pan over medium heat and spray with cooking spray.

Cook muffins about 3 - 5 minutes until golden brown then flip over to cook the other side.

Serve with Very Berry Sauce and maple syrup.

The line-up.

Combine the eggs, milk. sugar, vanilla and cinnamon in a 9 x 13 inch pan. Mix well.

Then lay the split english muffins face down in the mixture. Leave them there for about 30 minutes.

Prick the backsides with a fork then flip them over and leave them for 15 minutes.

Cook them on a medium hot griddle or pan until done.

On both sides....

Very Berry Sauce

3 cups berries (I used a mixture of strawberries and blackberries)
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup water
2 tablespoons cornstarch mixed with 1/4 cup water

Place berries in a medium saucepan. Add berries and water. Bring to a boil.

Pour in cornstarch/water mixture, turn down heat and stir until thickened.

Serve with English Muffin French Toast

The stuff for the berry sauce.

Add the berries, sugar and 1/2 cup water to a saucepan.

Stir and cook until the berries have cooked down a little bit.

Combine the cornstarch and 1/4 cup water then add it to the berry mixture.

Cook it until the berries are nice and thick.

Serve with warm maple syrup...so good!!!
