French Toast Breakfast Dog


Some days, you find a new reason to wake up in the morning. A reason for being. And I really can't think of a much better one than this invention: the French Toast Breakfast Dog.

It happened by chance: during one of my numerous French toast experiments, I had a bit of French toast batter left over. I always debate with myself what to do with this last bit of mixture. Throw it out? Squeeze out another piece, thereby risking my family's collective artery health? Drink it straight out of the bowl like the degenerate binge-eater I know myself to be?

Staring at the hot dog buns in the fridge, I got another idea.

Yes, you guessed it, I battered up a hot dog bun the same way I made my kid's favorite dessert-disguised-as-breakfast. Add some sausage, egg and pancake syrup, and you have literal heaven on a plate.


French Toast Breakfast Dog Recipe

Ingredients:


  • 1/4 cup French toast mix (the second one with the flour is way better)
  • 1 hot dog bun
  • 1/2 of a sweet pork sausage
  • 1 egg
  • 1/8 cup shredded cheese
  • 1 tsp milk
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 tbsp oil of your choice
  • Pancake syrup
Directions:
  1. Fry up sausage in a skillet over medium-high heat; set aside.
  2. Mix egg, cheese, and milk; scramble in small pan over medium-low heat. 
  3. Put French toast mix in a low, wide bowl. Dredge hot dog bun in French toast mix, making sure to coat all sides and linger so the mix soaks in.
  4. Heat the butter and oil in a skillet over medium heat. Cook soaked bun for three minutes or so on each side until browned. Start it cooking open-side up and make sure to hit all the sides so it maintains its shape. 
  5. Put sausage and egg into bun.
  6. Top with syrup.
  7. Eat. Die of happiness.
I seriously can't believe no one's invented this yet.
