French Toast Corn Bread, quick, easy Recipe

This is just a really quick and easy way to make cornbread french toast. Buy regular cornbread mix, I just happen to like Krusteaz Natural Honey Cornbread.
Make up the cornbread as the directions state and bake according, when done cool and set in your refrigerator for 2-3 days.
That's correct keep the cornbread in the refrigerator uncovered and out of your baking dish on platter or large plate, you want the cornbread to become dried out and hard.
After 3 days you are ready for the cornbread french toast. Mix 1 cup of milk, 1 egg, 2 tsp. of cinnamon, and 1 table spoon of sugar all together; slice the corn bread into rectangle squares.
Heat a large skillet on stove at medium to medium high temp and add 1/2 of butter, dip the cornbread in the milk mixture and drain slightly add quickly to hot skillet, turn often as not to burn the corn bread. What you are doing is frying the cornbread so that it is nice and crunchy on the outside. You can warm strawberry preserves and top the corn bread or serve with maple syrup, add scrambled eggs as a side with this, oh yum! In the picture above I have just added the syrup, but there are a lot of ways to do this so I hope this gets you started on different ways to make cornbread french toast.

The Finished Grubby Reindeer and Some Halloween Fabric Bowls

Okay they are finished! and oh my gosh do they smell just yum! I drove my son and husband nuts with the smell of cinnamon in the house. These little Reindeer are grubby and scented and will be cute Christmas decor for someone. I will be adding them to the Etsy store shortly along some other new items.
Sunday I was able to to also get some Halloween Fabric bowls done up and here they are; I did them up with some really nice cotton Halloween fabrics and they too are headed for my store. I will be selling them as a set. Sunday was a fun day not only did I do crafting but I came with a way to get rid of that day old corn bread! I will share that with you in a few days. It's Corn bread french toast and its yummy!
