On the third day of Christmas, my true love gave to me, Three French Hens, Two Turtle Doves, and a partridge in a pear tree! As part of the 12 Days of Christmas kid-friendly activities series, I would like to introduce you to a new family favorite breakfast recipe that is easy enough for children to make or help you make: Three French Hens Toast! 

Three French Hens Toast Kid-Friendly Recipe

With the theme of the 12 Days of Christmas, today would be the third day. To make it unique and fun I wanted to share a variation of the traditional Eggs in a Basket recipe. We have made this fun recipe in our house before, so with a slight variation I would like to introduce you to one of our fun and kid-friendly recipes for Three French Hens Toast! 

Ingredients:

To make your very own Three French Hens Toast you will need the following ingredients:

  • Loaf of French bread (left open overnight to go a little stale} cut into thick slices
  • 4 eggs for the mixture
  • 1 egg per slice of French bread
  • 1 cup of milk
  • Margarine
  • Dash of vanilla extract
  • Sprinkle of cinnamon
  • Powdered sugar to top your Three French Hens (optional)
  • Maple Syrup (optional)

You will also need the following pans and utensils:

  • Medium sized mixing bowl
  • Mixing spoon
  • Frying pan
  • Stove (to be used under direct parent supervision
  • Plate
  • Measuring cups and spoons 

Cooking Instructions:

To make your very own Three French Hens Toast you can follow these simple instructions:

  1. Start by making the egg mixture. Crack one egg into the medium sized mixing bowl and beat it well. Then, mix in the milk, cinnamon, and vanilla extract. The egg mixture should be enough for the entire loaf of bread. 
  2. Place the margarine in your frying pan and heat the frying pan on medium heat until the margarine starts to melt and bubble. Reduce the heat to low. Every stove is different, so please be careful of the heat settings. 
  3. Make an egg sized hole in the center of each piece of bread. 
  4. Dunk each piece of bread in your egg mixture making sure the bread is totally covered in the egg mixture. 
  5. Place the coated pieces of bread in the frying pan and crack one egg into each hole. 
  6. Cook the pieces in the frying pan on low heat until the underside is light brown. Typically, this will take about 5 minutes. Then, flip them over and cook them about the same amount of time. 
  7. Once done, use your spatula to transfer the Three French Hens Toast to a plate and enjoy! Sprinkle it with powdered sugar and dip it or cover it in maple syrup if you want as well.
