Sunday breakfast in an Amish home can vary. If it is a "church Sunday" there will be an early, light meal and then by 8:30 a.m. they are usually off in the buggy on the way to services with their bellies promised a huge spread after church. On a non-church Sunday (the Amish go every other Sunday), that is when a slower, more enjoyable morning meal may be enjoyed. How about a couple of recipes for a slow Sunday breakfast?
Amish Snickerdoodle Toast
1 ¼ cups half and half cream
3 eggs, beaten
2 TBS sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla
5 cups of cinnamon and sugar crispy sweetened cereal, (Cinnamon Toast Crunch), crushed
12 (¾ inch thick) slices of bread
Spray a 15 by 10 by 1 inch baking tray with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.
Beat together the cream, eggs, sugar, cinnamon and vanilla in a shallow bowl. Place the crushed cereal in another bowl. dip the bread slices into the egg mixture, allowing it to sit for several minutes on both sides so that some of it is absorbed by the bread. Dip the soaked bread into the crushed cereal, coating it on both sides. Place on the prepared baking tray. When they are all dipped and coated and place on the pan.
Place in an oven that has been preheated to425*F
Bake, uncovered, for 15 to 20 minutes, turning over halfway through the baking period.
Serve warm with butter and maple syrup.
