Often when I eat breakfast it's just me. I'll usually end up making a smoothie and having a bowl of milk or a granola bar, etc. But sometimes I want a REAL home-cooked breakfast even though it's just me.
This easy French toast for one recipe is quick and simple to make – about 5 minutes from start to finish – and is perfectly sized to feed ONE person. 5 minutes for a whole delicious, fresh-made breakfast sounds great to me!
For my french toast I used a white bread with sesame seeds on the crust, but you can use ANY type of bread. I often like to use a multi-grain bread because it makes the breakfast more wholesome and hearty.
You can even change things up and use a cinnamon swirl bread or slices of french baguette. The options are pretty much endless.
With this simple but delicious breakfast, I end up getting protein from the egg, fiber from the bread (I use whole grain or the fiber-enriched white bread) and drink a glass of milk with it. That's my idea of a yummy quick breakfast!!!
When I make french toast, grilled cheese, or anything with bread, I love using my square griddle. It makes it so easy to fit up to four pieces of bread/sandwiches on the square surface. I have this particular Calphalon square griddle that I have used for almost 10 years now and it is awesome! It heats very evenly and it is easy to clean when I'm done cooking.

How to Make French Toast for One:

One at a time, coat the bread slices in the egg mixture, placing each on griddle as soon as it is coated. Sprinkle each slice with cinnamon. Cook 1-2 minutes or until golden brown.
