When I was little, on special days, my dad would make cinnamon toast for breakfast. My parents were (still are) adamant about healthy meals, so it was a very special treat. It became one of my favorite comfort foods.
One of the perks of being an adult: I can eat cinnamon toast whenever I want. (As long as I add about 5 miles to my morning run. For a week.)
2 slices of bread of your choice*
1/2 t sugar
1/2 t cinnamon
1/2 T butter
*Yes, I know it’s weird that I like sweet toast made on sourdough. You’ll have to forgive me. I’m from San Francisco. If I didn’t like everything sourdough, I’m pretty sure they’d hunt me down and throw me out of the city.
Slice the butter as thinly as possible and place in a medium skillet over very low heat.
Sprinkle your sugar over the butter as it melts, then place your slices on top of the melted butter/sugar.
Scoot the pieces around the pan a bit to spread the sugar over the bread. After 10 seconds, remove the bread from the pan and sprinkle the cinnamon over the buttered side.
Return to the pan buttered side down, and continue to toast for 1 – 2 minutes, depending on how dark you like your toast.
And enjoy. 🙂
