Before popping the eggs in the oven I prepare the meats and the French Toast. I use the French Bread sliced thick and soaked in a mixture of whipped eggs, cream, milk, sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla.
The first thing I prepare is our infamous family tradition chocolate syrup. This is a light milk chocolate or darker if I'm in the mood, with a pinch of cinnamon.
What you will need for the chocolate syrup:
2 Cups of sugar
½ Cup of flour
1/3 Cup of Hershey’s Cocoa (no sugar, baking cocoa) Use ½ Cup if you want it darker.
½ Teaspoon of Cinnamon
Pinch of salt
Stir the dry ingredients very well getting all the lumps out
Add ½ Cup of water and stir well
Add 2 Cups of whole milk and stir well.
Set the pan on Medium Heat. Stir occasionally for Five Minutes while it is getting hot.
After 5 minutes you will need to stir constantly for the next 5 minutes or so. (It will start to stick to the bottom of the pan like when you are cooking a pudding) Once it is creamy (not thick) remove from heat add 1 tsp. of vanilla and a tsp. of butter.
They also love fresh fruits so I make fresh pineapple, mango, strawberries and kiwi and anything in season fruit salad and of course some Mimosa’s when we’re celebrating.
