Coffee Creamer French Toast


November!  I mean, can you even believe it?!  November already.  Oh, and by the way, happy dia de los muertos for anyone who celebrates.  🙂  Skeletons with bright, festive colors?  Who wouldn’t love that?  😀

With the calendar changing I guess colds and the flu are pretty much inevitable.  How often do you all get sick?  I haven’t had the flu in years.  But I always know when I’m getting sick.  I get this weird warm feeling behind my eyes.  I guess it must be my sinuses laughing at me or something.  But whenever I start feeling that way I know it’s time to grab the cold medicine.

The other day I thought I was doomed.  Everyone around me was feeling cruddy.  Sore throats, headaches, general aches and pains.  And then we all know what starts to happen.  It’s the power of suggestion, right?  Somebody just has to get a little bit of a stomach ache and then suddenly you feel like you have one too.  Does anyone else get that?  Well, I started to feel achy.  All my joints were stiff and I felt unnaturally cold.  Oh no!  But then I took some Advil and it went away!  Hallelujah!  Because the last thing I wanted to do was deal with a cold for five or so days.  Yuck.


What about colds bothers you the most?  Some people can’t stand runny noses.  For me, though, I’d have to say that I’d rather have a runny nose for a week than a sore throat for a day.  I CAN’T STAND sore throats.  That feeling of sandpaper every time you swallow.  Did you know that they actually have prescription cough syrup for people who have seriously bad sore throats?  But apparently you have to make sure not to eat anything for like a half hour after you take it because it pretty much numbs your throat.  And it smells potent.  No thank you.  I hate sore throats, but I’d rather have a sore throat than tangle with that stuff.  It would remind me too much of that pink stuff they smear on your gums at the dentist, and being reminded of the dentist is never high on my list.  🙂  No offense to dentists out there.  😀

So, speaking of colds and general blah, here’s a meal to have on those cold winter days when you need to feel a little warmed up.  Coffee creamer French toast!  I’ve been making this for a couple years now.  I originally started out using eggnog, but then I had to switch over to coffee creamer because the nog doesn’t stay around in the stores too long.  What I love about this recipe is how you can alter it to suit your own tastes.  This particular batch was made with caramel truffle coffee creamer, but as the holidays get nearer it might be nice to break out the peppermint…or gingerbread!  Mmm, that would be good.  And French toast gets rid of colds right?  Right?  😉

Happy eating!

      Thanks so much, Manali!

    I can’t believe it’s November either! I wish there was a pause button in life! 🙂 Oh I love the sound of coffee creamer french toast! I’ve never seen a more simple french toast recipe, and I love it! Looks perfect, Amanda!

      Thank you so much, Gayle!

    I saw this and was like “this looks like something I would do!”. I don’t mean to try to steal any credit by saying this – I am just saying, I appreciate the way you think. 🙂 And I am in awe of this creativity!

    • Amanda November 2, 2016, 12:55 pm

      Haha, thanks so much! I kind of have this weird urge to dump a mocha or latte in a bowl with some eggs and make French toast from that too. 😀

    I feel like I’m flirting with sickness too…zicam has been my savior. And yay for November and coffee creamer, it’s the best!

    • Amanda November 2, 2016, 12:55 pm

      Thanks so much, Dorothy!

    I got my first cold in four years last week and it was miserable. I’m so glad i’m finally recovered. This french toast though is such a great pick me up.

    • Amanda November 2, 2016, 12:57 pm

      Holy cow! The first cold in four years?! You have a fantastic immune system. I should eat whatever you’re eating haha. Thanks, Nicole! 🙂

    French toast is definitely a ‘cure’ for a sore throat or cough. In fact, I’m pretty sure any sweet treat is. 🙂

    • Amanda November 4, 2016, 12:21 pm

      I totally agree. Thanks, Eva!

    Oh I LOVE adding coffee creamer (or Irish Cream) to my french toast! This looks fabulous and SO perfect for the cooler weather, girlfriend! I wish I had a stack of this instead of my lame breakfast! Cheers!

    • Amanda November 4, 2016, 12:21 pm

      Thanks so much, Cheyanne!

    I can’t handle a headache, stiff neck, and runny nose. Colds are really bad. 🙁 Coffee creamer french toast sounds wonderful, Amanda. PS: I love that beautiful plate. 🙂

    • Amanda November 4, 2016, 12:22 pm

      Haha, thanks Anu! I need to use my tea plates more often. 🙂

    Sore throats are definitely the worst. But also that feeling where your head is floating away from your body. And you have so. much. work. to. do. Egg nog in french toast is one of my seasonal faves… But with so many coffee creamer flavors out these days, that totally works, too!

    • Amanda November 4, 2016, 12:23 pm

      Oh I hate that spacey head feeling. I feel like I’m in one of those commercials where I need to get Claritin clear or something, except it’s a cold. Thanks so much!

  • Jessica @ Citrus Blossom Bliss November 4, 2016, 10:25 am

    I love that this uses creamer instead of milk – that truffle flavored creamer sounds divine too!! Yum!

    • Amanda November 4, 2016, 12:24 pm

      Thanks so much, Jessica!

  • Kathy @ Beyond the Chicken Coop November 6, 2016, 7:13 am

    I hope you feel better! This french toast looks so delicious and like total comfort food….it should be making you feel better in a jiffy!

    • Amanda November 7, 2016, 10:28 am

      Thanks so much, Kathy!

    Advil is like a wonder drug for me.
    Love that this recipe uses coffee creamer. I buy it to use in my coffee, but it takes me forever to use a bottle and I feel like it’s getting too old and sometimes toss it out before it’s gone. This recipe would help me use it up faster. 🙂

    • Amanda November 7, 2016, 10:29 am

      It always takes me so long to use them too, those and Torani syrup for lattes and mochas. I need to figure out a recipe that uses them. 🙂 Thanks, Christin!
