St. Pat's Food - French Toast with Bangers & Reubens!!!!
Besides dressing in green on St. Patrick's Day I also planned our meals around the holiday. I bought a package of Bangers at Trader Joe's (have never made them before!!). So, I fixed them for breakfast to go with French Toast. I make my French Toast with vanilla - and this is how I do mine --
For this batch I made about 6 pieces and I used this amount and whisk:
about 1 T. milk
a good tsp. of vanilla
sprinkling of cinnamon
Here is the egg/milk/vanilla mixture whisked --
Whisk some cinnamon into this --
Dip bread into this and flip and do other side --
Fry in skillet that has some melted butter --
Flip and do other side --
Now, for the bangers. I put some margarine in a pan and fried them until done --
The French Toast is delicious -- but I think I would prefer our regular breakfast sausage instead of the Bangers --
For our evening meal I made Reuben sandwiches. If you don't make these -- try them because it is such a nice meal to put together quickly --
You will need -
pkg. beef (or corned beef, but Mr. Cardigan doesn't like it)
You make these just like doing a grilled cheese sandwich. Butter the rye bread --
Place the bread butter-side down in a warmed-up skillet. Put as much beef or corned beef as you like on top (I use 1 small package of the Buddig brand beef per sandwich and I use the larger rye bread.) --
Using a fork put as much sauerkraut as you like on top of the beef --
Swiss cheese slices on top --
The other slice of rye bread butter-side up --
Make these just like grilled cheese - keep checking when each side is finished. I have a nice spatula that is great for turning over larger sandwiches like these --
Love these with Thousand Island Dressing to dip the sandwich in --
Doesn't it look like Lucy is having a time-out????

I have been loving reading other blogs for a while. I thought that maybe if I was accountable by posting on a blog that I might accomplish more. We will see! Here are some of my current "loves" (besides blogs): decorating for all holidays, crafting, cooking and baking, traveling, shopping, some reality shows, Dancing with the Stars, Real Housewives, getting together with my "YaYa" girlfriends,and most of all My Family!!
